Is Ford Eyeing Aussie Exports?

Ford announced on Thursday that its Australian operations would benefit from $1 billion in investment in the next decade. And in a carefully worded press release, Ford hinted that it may see its Down Under ops in the same way GM now views Holden - as a hothouse for future American-style muscle cars and rear-drive sedans. Ford confirmed in its release that its Australian Falcon/Territory sedans and utes would be the basis for new vehicles drawn from its "globally competitive large rear-wheel-drive vehicle platform." Ford also said that its Australian team would begin to design vehicles for left-hand-drive applications. Ford will spend some of the $1 billion on establishing Australia as its "center of excellence" for the Asia Pacific and Africa region. The center will be charged first with developing a new global light commercial vehicle architecture that will spawn commercial vehicles for use in 80 countries.
