From the few spy pics and speculated styling i'm expecting an exterior styling upgrade similer to what the EF was from ED ( nobody will mistake it for a FG ), though not expecting too many uprades elsewhere as the budget was tight. Anyway looks sell so a good way to send the Falcon off i say.

Is the interior getting a revamp?

I spotted a fully camo'd LHD white sedan in the city yesterday. It possibly had a Territory style front bumper/grill shape (aka whale mouth) under the camo, however it was more compact than the Falcon. I really don't even know if it was a Ford to be honest !

No pics, as was driving with the kids and didn't want to risk a ticket !

As far as I am aware the small number of mules that were made late last year all had a hot date with a concrete wall. These days with the powerful design software and supercomputers Ford has, they can do a lot of the required testing "virtually" but sooner or later they have to get out onto public roads.

It would be nice though if Ford gave us another teaser pic to keep the excitement levels up...just one, Ford? Are you listening?

Considering it's all still secret, it's unlikely that there'll be any published information out there.
But yeah, think about it as the AU3-BA upgrade minus the changes to the interior or underneath.

Essentially no. IMO the only issue with the current car ('s interior) is the quality of the materials and I'm led to believe that'll change. But otherwise expect the same shape as the FG.

I never said underpinnings. A change of A and C pillars is a much bigger change than just new front and rear bumpers like it's anticipated to be.

Prototypes will be circulating the proving grounds, but they won't hit the public roads for a little while. Usually only 6 months before release.

I still recall seeing an AU on the Hume in NSW prior to release. I also recall the 'WTF have they done??' response. I hope they don't try to be too creative this time.

The AU imo has aged better than the VT Commodore

Seeing as there are no spy pics of FH, anyone have any pics/ magazine clips of the previous generations test mules or styling scoops...? I remember seeing some for AU and BA, how wrong they were...!

That would be disappointing. To me, the FG interior looks dated, especially alongside the other current Ford offerings. IMO the interior is the weak link in the FG, which is otherwise quite a decent package and a good looker on the outside.

Gee wiz I remember how excited I was to see all those pics. Interesting to look at the time line of when they were first seen as apposed to being relased. It was first spotted in May of 2007 and was realeased on the January 08. So about 6-8 months. Going by that we should be seeing some soon. I hope. Also, once the fg broke cover it was seen almost all the time. Got that excitment coming on again.

I saw a heavily camouflaged vehicle doing a trip through the dandenongs on the 2/1/14. Impossible to tell what it was, but it was a sedan i know that much. Sorry I dont have any pics, it was going the other way, and i was midway through a bend :(

If you add Ford sync to a current car does it need any interior change?

I've also seen a heavily camouflaged vehicle driving around Ormond, Victoria a few days ago. Seemed to have rectangular headlights similar to the Vf or Mondeo rather than the current triangular ones. Not sure what it was but it was falcon sized.

Sorry for that small oversight. If that was the case then the spy pics started coming a year out from the release. Even more case for it to be around now with it being less than a year from release.

As was I. I'm in that place again, waiting eagerly for it to break cover. Saddened by the knowledge that this will be the last time I go through it.
