Ford has released details on its new 2015 Falcon line-up confirming SYNC2, digital radio, and Emergency Assistance are now standard across the range.

THE 2015 FORD FALCON is due to be launched in mid-November and will be the last-ever Australian-produced Falcon when local production ends in 2017. The Falcon range is available with four, six and V8 engines.

There are six model variants to choose from, including: Falcon, Falcon G6E, Falcon G6E Turbo and the sporty performance variants, the Falcon XR6, XR6 Turbo and XR8.
