    To be fair we haven't had an official release yet.

    Id expect that early in the new year.

    Maybe holding off till MY17 stock is lower? They're showing 1079 new/demo's 2017 models on carsales.

    Not sure what their stock holding is like outside of those numbers but my dealer had about 8.

    No pricing at the moment sorry.

    But I will stress getting what you want locked in by next Wednesday (if you want the exact spec YOU want) Hopefully you know us well enough that we don't BS.

    Sounds like Ford are locking in spec very early, which makes sense being first allocation.

    This is not your fault so please don't think i'm shooting the messenger here.

    But it's not good enough for Ford once again to expect people to lock away a purchase like this without knowing anything about what specification we're getting or price.

    Once again Ford putting the cart before the horse.

    Yeah I don't get it.

    Realistically people will be taking delivery in Late August / Early Sept if history is anything to go by.

    If you watch the video they say export orders to Europe/Asia will start april/may.

    Traditionally we're last off the line after them thanks to our bespoke ADR's..

    Then 6-8 weeks freight time by ship.

    Shipping normally goes to Qld first, then down the coast to Melb.

    So i might be a bit pessimistic here but I agree, aug/sept more likely.

    In any event some time in Q3 for first allocation.

    I think the option list will be much longer so effectively its tick a box to get you to PP1

    Why not just give us PP1.

    Things like proper DRL's and blindspot were missed on the last one.

    Because I suspect there’s a fairly significant price hike on the way and to offset that the base will lose content to the option list to keep it lower on paper.
