2012 Ford FPV F6 MkII preview (video)

Brett Davis

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.

For all the details on how it drives, and its features, stay tuned for the full 2012 Ford FPV F6 MkII review and video test drive in the next few days.

While you’re waiting, here’s a quick sneak peek at what the F6 sounds and goes like under hard acceleration. Click play below.
