Last Ford Falcon XR8 badge revealed: it’s certainly edgier

The teaser campaign for the final facelifted Ford Falcon continues, with the XR8 badge now making the rounds on the internet.


For the final Falcon update, Ford will, for the first time in years, offer buyers the option of a V8 engine. During the last few iterations V8 engines were reserved for the Ford Performance Vehicle (FPV) line.

As FPV is shutting down later this year when manufacture of the 351kW/570Nm FPV GT-F is done, V8s will be available in the regular Falcon range again.

It’s not known at this stage which Ford V8 will be offered in the Falcon XR8, but this is its edgier grille badge.
