XR6: Ford's well-tamed wildcat

Ford's XR6 is stylish and smart, but its advanced technology makes it safe too.

WHETHER you're a car connoisseur or you're more interested in the looks 'n' feel vibe when it comes to choosing your ride, the new Ford Falcon XR6 is an absolute palette pleaser.

It's not often you come across a car with the ability to have you sitting tall and proud with testosterone surging through your veins as you pull up at the football stadium, tingling with rockstar razzle-dazzle at the entertainment centre or gushing with chic, celebrity glam at your favourite restaurant.

The new Ford Falcon XR6 does it all.

Okay, so I admit, I'm probably a car salesperson's ideal customer - as soon as Rebecca Boyd, the new car sales manager at Powerhouse Ford uttered the words, "XR6", I felt my spine melt in the most pleasant way possible.

Stepping inside this omnivorous beauty is comparable I imagine to riding a well-tamed wildcat - glamour and grunt in perfect symmetry.

Clutching the leather-wrapped, sports steering wheel with mounted audio controls, I was instantly smitten by the sense of comfort and luxury from the interior of a car that enchants at first glance.

But where other good-looking show boaters may falter, Ford has again shown why the XR range is at the top of the performance food chain.

The Ford XR6 features the hands-free convenience of Bluetooth with steering-wheel button control as well as full ipod integration, state-of-the-art satellite navigation, dual-zone climate control, a fatigue-warning system and reverse-cameras for comfort and peace of mind.

Under the hood, the Falcon's new EcoLPi engine delivers more power and torque than a petrol engine as well as achieving outstanding LPG savings and lower carbon emissions. Class and arse.

The Ford Falcon XR6 has it all.

Whether you're driving to the mines, taking the family to the football or meeting the ladies for lunch, the XR6 will exceed both your needs and expectations.

Along with side-walk-melting good looks, Ford has employed the most advanced technologies to ensure you and your family travel in upmost safety and security.

Dynamic safety control (DSC) strengthens your connection to the road and helps you avoid the problems of over-steer and under-steer as the DSC tracks the vehicle's movement, working in tandem with the traction control and ABS to help keep the vehicle under control.

Oh I know, I know, they had me at DSC also.

What it means is, the XR6 is not only stylish, savvy and smart - most importantly, it's safe. If you've got plans to hit the road over the Easter holidays, the good news is that Powerhouse Ford has a 2012 model Ford Falcon XR6 available in automatic at the drive-away price of just $35,990.

For more information and full specifications on the Ford Falcon XR6, head into Powerhouse Ford on the river end of Nelson Street, Mackay.
