The fully revamped EF’s sleeker nose meant a well-integrated twin headlight nose characterised the smooth XR series.
Over the ED, the EF also featured an all-new tail (sedan only) and interior design, with only the doors being carried over.
Substantial engineering changes resulted in revised motors (the standard Tickford-tuned 4.0L I6 was now 164kW/366Nm or 170kW/398Nm 5.0L V8), suspension, steering, brakes, computer power and body crash resistance, while better seats and a driver’s airbag were introduced.
And finally the old under-dash handbrake gave way to a console-sited one.
New Standard features: driver’s airbag, centre console with armrests and drink holders, upgraded audio, passenger seat lumber support, service interval indicator, console handbrake.
