The company’s Vice President of global marketing Jim Farley told 0-60mag that the company is planing to use a more performance orientated approach for the American market. This means that the following years could see hot machines that Americans have craved for in the past arrive in dealerships across the nation.
The executive explained that the company’s new global synergistic plan could see go-fast models break the boundaries of continents. This process has already started, with Ford previously announcing that the new Focus ST, a hatch that has been thrilling Europeans for the last two generations, will hit the U.S. in 2012.
Farley offered an example for such a potential move, choosing to make us think about a situation that would send our excitement level through the roof. We are talking about a high performance V8 and a famous Ford saloon here. By the way, do you like our teasing? OK, we’ll stop it.
The executive told the aforementioned source that the Australian performance versions of the Falcon could go global.
We’ll remind you that a trip to an Australian Ford dealer would allow you to get up close and personal with the Ford Performance Vehicle Falcon GT-P. Under the hood of the mighty saloon, we find a 5.0 liter V8 that puts 449 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque at the mercy of the driver’s right foot, so it’s easy to understand why we’re so determined to see it on U.S. roads.
