Cant say I'm surprised. Much cheaper to manufacture somewhere else.

Very Sad to hear.

On the positive side there will be some cheap Fords around in the next few years

what makes you think they will become any cheaper?


ford global are still one of the strongest brands. the UK and US market alone dwarfs holden. just cos' they are finally getting smart and manufacturing offshore doesnt mean anything changes.

Just saw something on the news that an announcement is expected within the hour that Ford will shut down production in Australia. No dates were given. Interesting times ahead if this is true.

I wonder if GM will pull the plug when the VF ends it run
