    Default Ford Falcon Won’t See U.S. Shores



    http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...-v8-might.html

    Contrary to a rather exciting recent report thatís been circulating, Ford wonít be bringing the Falcon to U.S. shores, meaning we wonít get to appreciate some Ford of Australia engineered RWD V8 sedan goodness unless we book a day long flight to down under. Original plans to bring the Falcon to the U.S. (requiring Ford of Australia to engineer a new left-hand drive version of the car) were reportedly canned in 2008 and have not been revived.

    Itís not all bad news, however, with Ford still likely to bring the Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) Falcon GTís supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine to America. Execs at the Blue Ovalís Aussie division have confirmed their desire to export this new engine, which in the top-level Falcon makes 449-hp and 420 ft-lbs of torque.

    As for what it would be used for, both the Mustang and Ford Raptor are obvious choices.

    Not sure what's the point of bringing a supercharged V8 that only makes 37 more horsepower than the current 5.0. Why not just slap a supercharger on the 5.0? It worked for GM with the GTP and now the CTS-V.
