Thanks.This deserves a serious answer
It's not complete crap, but its certainly not a great car which I understand the Falcon to be. I didn't know the decision had been made on the world platform for Ford. Last I heard, the decision wasn't going to be made between the Falcon and Taurus platforms until 2016. That's too bad. I'd bet part of the problem is the new fuel economy standards here, which is a big reason why the Viper is being discontinued.The Ford Falcon is on its last generation. It's due to be replaced with the American Taurus. I've heard that the latest generation of Taurus is not complete crap. It will still be a sad day to see the last Falcon roll off the production line.
If it makes you feel better, the current crap-ass Chevrolet Impala/Buick Park Avenue/Cadillac XTS is going to be discontinued and replaced by the next-generation Holden Commodore platform, so we're coming out more or less even. And Holden also developed the platform the Camaro is based on. You Aussies may have come out ahead.
