2012 Ford FPV F6 MkII preview (video)

March 9, 2012

PerformanceDrive is preparing its full review of the new 2012 Ford FPV F6 MkII. The 2012 update features a number of minor styling tweaks, new wheels, and a new in-car interface.

As previously reported, all new 2012 Ford FPV MkII models come with a new eight-inch Interior Command Centre (ICC) LCD touch-screen multimedia interface. This replaces the somewhat cumbersome Human Machine Interface (HMI) screen, which used ATM-style buttons.

The 2012 Ford FPV F6 MkII update also gets a set of fresh Graphite 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, a revised front grille and fascia with mesh inserts, new FPV floor mats, a reverse-parking camera, and projector headlights.

Under the bonnet sits the same 4.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder monster, producing 310kW of power and 565Nm of tyre-torturing torque. The engine can be mated to either a six-speed manual, or, like our test car, a smooth six-speed automatic.

Prices start at $64,890 for the F6 sedan, and $55,990 for the F6 Ute.
