Car reviews - Ford - Falcon Ute - XR6 VCT Pursuit utility
23 Jan 2002
THE heating/ventilation system in the XR6 is controlled by three rotary dials for temperature, fan speed and air direction. Manual air-conditioning is standard and the rear cabin window is fitted with a demister. There is no separate switch for air recirculation, as it has been incorporated into the vent outlet dial, meaning there are seven choices instead of the usual five. Recirculation is only available on "face" or "face/feet" settings as a result. Dual vents are located on the outboard edges of the dashboard for driver and passenger, while there are a further two vents at the top of the main control console. Each vent has a control wheel that allows it to be closed off partially or completely, as required.
