Ford Australia has released the first details on their new look Falcon XR sedan range before its official release at next weeks Australian International Motor Show. The new look is achieved through a newly designed body kit, revised exterior mirrors and revised alloy wheel design for the premium XR sedan models.

The body kit consists of a new front bumper with mini rockers in each side, new side rockers, new insert in the rear bumper and newly designed exterior mirrors. All the new components are painted in the body color of the car. The premium XR models also receive new five-spoke 18inch alloy wheels in high-gloss Mid Argent paint with a unique shadow chrome paint finish.

"The new look Falcon XR sedan is the most significant upgrade to the exterior design of the performance XR models since BF Falcon was introduced," Ford Australia Vice President Marketing and Sales Mark Winslow said.

Besides the XR refreshment, Ford Australia is also launching the limited edition "XR by Craig Lowndes" Falcon Ute (650 units) and is available only for the XR6, XR6 Turbo and XR8 Styleside Box models. A set of 18-inch alloy wheels, a one-piece hard tonneau cover with power bulge and rear spoiler, Momo steering wheel, fancy audio system and unique 'by Craig Lowndes' decals set the special edition apart from the regular Ford XR Utes. Also, the Craig Lowndes Ute comes in a limited selection of exterior colors, namely Lightning Strike, Octane, Vixen, Conquer and Silhouette.

"Recently voted one of the ten greatest Australian racing drivers in history by a panel of drivers, journalists and senior motorsport figures, Craig's achievements within the world of V8 Supercar racing resonate with a huge percentage of our Falcon XR Ute customers," Mr Winslow said.
