AU III Falcon Forte and Futura

1 Nov 2001

Ford kept playing the value-added card to prop-up Falcon sales with the standard inclusion of ABS.

Trainspotters should be aware of the “Series III” badge, smoked headlight surrounds, body coloured mirrors and trim, the addition of side skirts, clear side indicator lens and an extra-tinted windscreen.

Near the unloved AU III’s end Ford began to leak details of the heavily facelifted and re-engineered BA Falcon. Meanwhile the 157kW/357Nm 4.0L I6 engine remained.

New standard features: Anti-lock brakes, side skirtsSpecial editions:· Mar 02 – SR: Alloy wheels, cruise control, rear spoiler, body-coloured grille and mirrors, limited slip differential, roof racks (wagon), sports suspension (wagon only), chrome exhaust tip, decals.
