In addition, the 2015 Falcon XR6 gets the SYNC2 infotainment system, a digital radio DAB+, climate control, Bluetooth phone and audio, 8-inch colour screen, WiFi hotspot and the voice control system called ‘Karen’.

Under the hood, the vehicle carries an inline-six 4.0-liter petrol engine that generates 261 hp (195 kW) and 391 Nm (288 lb-ft) of torque. Moreover, Ford offers 4.0-liter straight-six EcoLPi engine generating 265 hp (198 kW) and 409 Nm (302 lb-ft) of torque.
