Before the Blue Oval puts the lock on its production facilities from the Land Down Under, there's one final Falcon slated to go on sale this November. Teased on the brand's Facebook page through the picture you see above and the #Official #2014Falcon hashtags, this yet-to-be-unveiled model is the swan song of the locally-built Ford Falcon full-size sedan.
Ahead of the carmaker's planned shutdown in October 2016, the Falcon will be joined by a facelifted model of the Territory SUV. From the teaser picture provided, we can confirm that the specific honeycomb front grille is here to stay in chrome finish, while the front fascia's look is further enhanced by redesigned headlight clusters featuring thin strips of LED daytime running lights.

Although the upcoming Ford Falcon is just a heavily updated offering, not an all-new model, exterior styling will be pretty different compared to the outgoing model thanks to restyled tail lights featuring a streamline design, pumped up rear wheel arches and an integrated bootlid spoiler. Details may be scant at the moment, but it's been confirmed that an XR8 badge and a supercharged V8 will be found on the Ford Performance Vehicle version of the Falcon, slated to hit local dealerships in the first quarter of 2015.

The profile look and overall shape won't be that much of a far cry aesthetic-wise over the outgoing Ford Falcon, but the refreshed version of the iconic Aussie sedan will almost certainly get a mildly revamped interior, with new styling and gizmos, as well as new bits and bobs in the form of optional extras. Certain voices hint that the four-pot EcoBoost, LPG variants and six-cylinder mill will go through minor changes with the updated Falcon, while the Ford Sync infotainment system will be offered as well.

Until Ford Australia realeases more details about the upcoming Falcon, preferably without the use of tacky hashtags and other 2.0 mumbo-jumbo nobody cares about, we remind you that the limited edition FPV GT F 351 packs 404 kW of supercharged grunt and 570 Nm of torque if you press the overboost button. A Pursuit Ute is offered as well, retailing at AUD 52,990 compared to the sedan's AUD 77,990. If you want one, you'd better make your mind up fast because these babies are selling like hotcakes.
