Over the past few months there has been a lot of speculation as to if Ford would import a replacement F250 when the RM & RN model F-Series are phased out at the end of 2006.

I received a letter from Tom Gorman the President of Ford Motor Company of Australia yesterday and in it states

Ford understands and shares your enthusiasm for F-Series and will be working to bring an all new right hand drive F-Series range to Australia as soon as possible.

We look forward to bringing you details of a new model as soon as possible.

With those quotes it looks very much like there will be a new model F-Series coming to Australia.

I just bought a new Ford after 6 months of Research. I wil put a Posting on the results of that research. But the new Ford is out with a 6.0 litre Twin Turbo, and the same brilliant TorqueShift transmission that has been out for the past three years with almost nil failures in that brilliant transmission. Anyways the Twin Turbo 6.0 will be out in February. It will take 12 months to get the Compliancing done for the body style. And right now Ford has NO Right Hand Drive Factory.

Despite the PR, I have a new F-550 on Order right now. And there is NO CHANCE of seeing it before 2008. And right now there are NO PLANS in Ford for a RHD Factory model. I would not hold my breath for any new Fords in Australia before mid 2008 at the very best. And even then, I cannot see it happening. Too many problems in setting up the RHD Factory for Export. Hazard a guess from 6 months of Research? 2009 at best...

Regards from the Ranger, out there doing it, and just took Delivery of a New Ford myself and have the bigger one on Order for MAYBE 2008...
