Fulcrum Suspensions FG Falcon Vehicle Testing
Stage 1:Fulcrum Suspensions Vehicle Development Programme on the FG XR6 Falcon is testing the Original Equipment suspension system in a controlled environment with testing that can be replicated on any vehicle or suspension system. From this testing, we will engineer SuperPro polyurethane bushings ,TEIN coilover kits and other suspension performance and replacement parts. The end result of the test may surprise you compared to the standard VE SV6 Commodore. More updates on this vehicle are to follow.
Test Drive 2008 - Testing FG Falcon Ute
Here's the first test I've seen of the new FG Falcon Ute. Seems well done and describes the good points of the car, but what are its faults? I'm sure someone has an educated opinion; why not let us all know?

Here Test Drive shows examples of some beaut sport cars available in Australia and pits them against eachother in the Supercar Showdown. Though, I couldn't really call any of them 'Supercars'. What do you think?

TD FG Falcon Introduction 11-05-2008 D
Next part of this episode of Test Drive, the introduction of the new FG Falcon. Ok, lotsa new stuff on the Falcon, but, in the real world, away from the sissy-bars and lesbian-encouraging female-only-gyms, what point is it all and will it be suitable in ten or more years? Yeah, that's right, most of the stuff in the cabin of the new Falcon will be obsolete and useless in a few years. Like the recent models that had stereos that could not easily be upgraded or altered (meaning the average second-hand car buyer had no use for the Falcon, which diminishes its value on the second-hand market and onlookers translate that to the new cars and so buy Commodores, Magnas, Camry's or foreign-built cars)these lovely new cars will have a much lower value in coming years than that of a Commodore of the same age. It's all well and good to have lots of beaut toys in the cab, but they've got to be able to be usable in ten to twenty years and upgradability should be paramount on the minds of the car's developers; alas it is not.
TD FG Falcon Introduction 11-05-2008 E2
This is a very good segment. While we watch the reporter waffle on about the car's foreign styling and other crap, we can see how well designed the car is for passengers and driver alike. Driver seat position and visibility are among the top five things of importance on a car. It's always easy to build a car for short people or for tall people, but for both; that's a little hard. And sure, there are problems not mentioned here, such as the gear shift position with manuals, but generally speaking, the FG's as good as the VE for ergonomics. Also, who wouldn't want to drive around in such a piece of art?
