    Not making it compete with Mustang is a misstep in my opinion. Problem now is the Australian companies that weredoing RHD conversions are now going to struggle to compete so that’s even more Aussie jobs lost.

    Yep,  it’s gonna be $30K more than the Mustang most likely.  Luxury car price for entry level  spec.

    I’ll wait till the next major upgrade when they will come in both LH & RD drive from the factory.

    You reckon there is any chance they are more or less testing to see how they sell, and if demand is there they will start to play around with upping the power etc?

    They would sell like hot cakes if they were priced correctly but when you are paying a huge premium for what is in reality a entry level model I think they will struggle.

    Ford got it right with the Mustang in that respect, clearly they understand the V8 bogan better than GM/Holden does these days.

    LOL, it passes through HSV before it reaches the customer……

     

    Here in NZ it’s probably easier to just import an American LH drive vehicle.
