Unless you’re Australian (and a hearty g’day to you, you bonza apples) or a hard-core ute-spotter, you might not be familiar with this particular gem. And before you skip past to the next slide, we should let you know that its real name is the TYPHOON. Go on, find us a more apt, and awesome, name for this 420bhp turbocharged beast.
Because it’s Australian, we should start with the most important part: the engine. It’s a 4.0-litre straight-six, turbocharged for the right reasons – more power. So there’s a great slog of regular torque down low, thanks to the large engine, then the turbo girds its loins and before you know it, the middle distance is suddenly exceptionally close.
And, being the charitable sorts they are, FPV (or Ford Performance Vehicles) decided that even those who needed to carry loads should be able to experience this whooshing assaults on the horizon.
