Ford F-150 coming Down Under in 2023

 

Ford Australia is planning for the legendary F-150 to arrive in Australia by mid-2023, through a right-hand drive, local remanufacturing program with RMA Automotive Holdings.

 

 

 

The F-150is part of America’s top-selling ute lineup, but is petrol-only. The only engine available in Australia will be the 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine that’s rated at 298kW and 678Nm – more than some competitor V8s. It will be coupled to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

More US customers choose the EcoBoost V6 than any other F-150 engine, and that powertrain will make F-150 one of the most powerful, and most capable, full-size pick-ups available in Australia.

F-150 will have a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty and will be fully loaded with tech and safety features: Ford SYNC4, Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Information with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping, Rear View Camer5, Auto High Beam, Reverse Brake Assist, Reverse Sensing and Post-Collision Braking.

Ford’s F-Series has been America’s best-selling model range for the past 40 years and more than 40 million F-Series Trucks have been produced.

Ford Australia’s product development team – the same team that brought the Next-Generation Ranger and Everest to the world – has played a key role in bringing the F-150 to Australia.

Working in conjunction with their US counterparts, Ford Australia’s product development engineers will collaborate with RMA Automotive to ensure a seamless ‘Built Ford Tough’ conversion.

RMA Automotive has more than 30 years of engineering expertise and has delivered more than 100,000 modified Ford vehicles globally. As a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM), Ford’s relationship with RMA dates back to 1997, with projects in Europe, North America, the Asia-Pacific region, Africa and the Middle East.

F-150 remanufacturing from left-hand drive to right-hand drive will take place in an RMA Automotive-leased facility at the Merrifield Business Park in Mickleham, north of Melbourne: located in the same precinct as Ford’s new parts supply and logistics hub and close to Ford’s engineering head office in Campbellfield.
