Production volume in Australia in 2003 - 82,701 passenger vehicles and 21,180 pick-ups. In July 1925, Ford started the Australian assem­bly of the Ford T with a locally manufactured body. In 1934 the first original Australian version of the Ford V8 Coupe Utility (combination of a co­upe with a pick-up) appeared on the market, which was the prototype of the present Falcon Ute. In the late 1940s, the local Fords were 54% produced from Australian parts. In 1960 the Falcon debuted, whose tenth BA generation has been produced since 2002, and since September 2004 - the modernized BA Mk II as the Falcon, the Falcon Futura and the Fairmont. The basic Falcon XT comes with 4.0-liter 248 hp, 5.4-liter 299 hp and 4.0-liter 212 hp LPG engines; the Falcon XR6 - with 4.0-liter 248 hp plants; the Falcon XR6 Turbo - with 4.0-liter 326 hp units; the Falcon XR8 - with 5.4-liter 354 hp power plants, and the Falcon XT Wagon - with 4.0-liter 248 hp units. Since 2003, the FPV branch has been producing tuned Falcons: the FPV GT and the FPV GT-P (with a 5.4-liter 394 hp V8 engine), and since 2004 - the FPV F6 Typhoon (with 4.0-liter 367 hp V6 plant). The Falcon Futura and the Fairmont versions differ from the Falcon in equipment and body fittings. The Falcon Futura is offered with the following engines: a 4.0-liter 248 hp unit and a 4.0-liter 212 hp LPG plant; the Falcon Futura Wagon - with a 4.0-liter 248 hp engine, and the Fairmont Ghia - with a 4.0-liter 248 hp and a 5.4-liter 299 hp unit. The luxurious and extended Fairlane and LTD sedan cars of the AU II series were replaced in June 2003 with the new BA series mo­dels, and in February 2005 - with modernized BA MK II series models. The Fairlane Ghia comes with a 4.0-liter 248 hp or a 5.4-liter 299 hp plant, the Fairlane G 220 - with a 5.4-liter 299 hp unit, and the longest LTD - with a 5.4-liter 299 hp engine. Presented at the 2003 Melbourne Motor Show, the Territory SUV with a 4.0-liter 248 hp power plant has been produced since May 2004 exclusively in Australia. At the 2003 Melbourne Motor Show, the Hi-Ride pick up with a 4x4 drive also debuted, which has been produced since the end of 2003 as the RTV Ute (with a 4.0-liter 248 hp engine). The Ute 4x2 pick-ups of the AU II series were replaced at the end of 2002 with the Ute BA series pick-ups, since 2004 - the BA Mk II (power plants: 4.0-liter 248 hp, 4.0-liter 326 hp and 5.4-liter 354 hp). The following tuned cars have been produced on its basis: since 2003 - the FPV Pursuit (with a 5.4-liter 394 hp V8 engine), and since 2004 - the FPV F6 Tornado (with a 4.0-liter 367 hp V6 plant).
