Ford's models chosen to celebrate the anniversary year are G6E 50th Anniversary (AU$47,950), G6E Turbo 50th Anniversary (AU$54,950), Falcon XR6 50th Anniversary sedan (AU$36,950), Falcon XR6 Turbo 50th Anniversary sedan (AU$45,950), Falcon XR6 50th Anniversary Ute (AU$32,950) and Falcon XR6 Turbo 50th Anniversary Ute (AU$38,950). The interesting part is that the prices announced by Ford are actually lower than the MSRP for the vehicles they are based on.
"The total value equation is different for each 50th Anniversary model, but it ranges from just over $9,500 to more than $12,000 of added value at no extra cost," Beth Donovan, Ford Australia vice president for Marketing, Sales & Service said in a statement.
For the G series, the anniversary package comprises unique accent color treatments with "Medium Stealth" touches, new leather detailed seat trim with embroidered "50th Anniversary" logos, 50th Anniversary badge, fender feature and carpet floor mats and 19-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels.
For the XR, Ford prepared "XR50" badging, XR50 body stripes and a "50th Anniversary" fender feature, Interior Command Centre (ICC), instrument panel and front door spears, standard dual zone climate control, premium audio system and high series sports leather steering wheel.
"With a host of additional equipment at no extra cost and some very sharp drive away price points, we expect these unique vehicles will prove extremely popular with both new and existing customers," Donovan added.
