Video: Ford Falcon EcoBoost kills a toad in online ad

Ford has released an amusing, albeit slightly sick, new promotional video for the new Ford Falcon EcoBoost. The new four-cylinder Falcon is now available in XT, G6, and G6 E form.

Obviously looking to remove any notion attached to four cylinder engines being ‘weak and not powerful enough’, Ford has come up with a creative approach to rub in the faces of all the four cylinder haters out there.

Before anyone breaks out in tears and reaches for the tissues, toads are considered a pest in Australia – in parts of Queensland, killing toads is encouraged.

The Ford Falcon EcoBoost comes with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 179kW of power and 353Nm of torque. Average fuel consumption is rated at 8.1L/100km.
