At the same time as it introduced the new Falcon GT R-Spec sedan in Melbourne, Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) also displayed the most limited of all limited-edition utes it has ever built.
Only available in Silhouette (a very black black) with Vixen stripes and accents, the FPV Pursuit ute will be limited to just 75 units. The latest FPV Pursuit Ute has a GT colour-coded front bumper and eight-inch alloy wheels in the same design as the nine-inch units fitted to the GT R-Spec.
The Pursuit has the standard features of the current GS ute, to which have been added a Pursuit badge across the tailgate and a GT colour-coded bumper that ties in nicely with the decal pack featuring FPV’s ‘C’ stripe. The rear end treatment finishes with black painted exhaust tips.
This eye-catching colour scheme, together with the special decals, lifts the looks of the already good FPV body modifications. The result is a true Aussie designed and built ute that really stands out on the road or at the owner’s favourite hangout.
Inside, the latest FPV ute has Shadow leather sports seats, a stylish piano black interior finish around the ICC unit, the tissue box and the door spears. The gear lever on the manual has a new badge design. Entertainment is provided by Ford’s Premium Sound system. Suna traffic control makes life easier.
The limited edition Pursuit Ute is powered by the FPV modified all-aluminium 315 kW 5.0-litre Harrop-supercharged V8 engine producing 545 Nm of torque between 2000 and 5500 rpm. The engine is based on the Boss unit built for the Ford Mustang in the United States, but gets quite a few modifications after it hits the Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) workshop in Melbourne.
As well as the standard six-speed manual gearbox, the FPV Pursuit Ute has the option of a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential sports shifts. The recommended manufacturer's list price for the limited edition FPV Pursuit ute is $57,990, on-road and governments charges have to be added. The Pursuit ute is sold only at participating FPV dealers.
