Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) today revealed the hot sports FPV F6X, the most powerful six-cylinder SUV in the Australian market. It is powered by the high-performance F6 270 Turbo 4.0-litre DOHC in-line six-cylinder engine that produces 362 hp. The F6X will go on sale starting February 29th, 2008 at a price of $75,990.
The engine is matched to the renowned ZF six-speed automatic transmission and a full-time All-Wheel-Drive system. Through a unique spring and damper calibration, FPV engineers have re-tuned the ride and handling to produce a firmer sports feel, which further enhances the primary ride control of the vehicle.
Further complementing the performance sports suspension is an upgraded brake package featuring premium front Brembo six piston calipers and 355mm x 32mm ventilated rotors, and rear 328mm x 26mm ventilated rotors with single piston sliding calipers. The Alpine Silver finish on the18-inch five-spoke alloys is also exclusive to the FPV F6X.
To match the higher engine outputs, sportier suspension and bigger brakes, FPV engineers also developed a unique Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) calibration for the FPV F6X.
