NO RESERVE AUCTION--any bid will buy it! Any bid is to buy the item--not to take an option ! ON THE RTV-- OVERVIEW Ever since Ford re-introduced a cab chassis design with the AU in 1999, it has had the upper hand over Holden and continued to deliver a very good product. Holden answered that sales domination with the One Tonner arriving in early 2003 and upped the ante with things like the double cab Crewman and its 4WD kin the Cross 8. Now Ford is fighting back again with the launch of the Falcon RTV (Rugged Terrain Vehicle) Ute. It's not a 4WD but according to Ford, offers the ability to head a little off the beaten track without sacrificing the comfort, ride and handling of the standard ute. To achieve its off-road ability the RTV has significantly increased ride height, plenty of off-road protection and a full locking rear differential. Ford has been in this market before with the Outback, sold between 1995 and 1999, but this new RTV promises more potential applications than its predecessor. At launch in September 2003, it carried between a $3500 and $4500 premium over the equivalent low ride ute pricing it between $30,615 and $37,635. FEATURES The most noticeable thing about the RTV is the extra ride height - both from outside and within the cabin - and this was one of the cornerstones of the engineering program. The idea was to provide a two-wheel drive alternative to the Japanese one tonners that could easily and safely get onto difficult building sites or along farm tracks without losing its underbody. Compared to the standard Falcon XL ute, the RTV sits 67.5mm higher at the front axle and 80mm higher at the rear axle, giving it an overall ground clearance of 215mm. The extra height has also increased approach and departure angles while a 30mm wider track ensures stability of the vehicle is maintained. As it is intended to travel in harsh areas, there is plenty of protection for mechanical components, including a full length high strength fiberglass composite sump transmission guard, protective coverings for brake and fuel lines and steel sleeves for the rear shocks. The RTV's styling was also designed to give it a fit for purpose attitude and it uses a different grille that ties it in with the Ford "truck" family and wide flared guards over the 16-inch alloy wheels. COMFORT Retaining the ride comfort of the standard Falcon ute was important to Ford and although the RTV uses the same leaf sprung rear as the One Tonne Ute, it has undergone some modifications to avoid axle tramp and the increased body roll often associated with higher ride vehicles. In terms of creature comforts, the RTV is offered in one trim specification with either a chassis cab or ute box rear. Standard features include power windows and mirrors, remote central locking, and a radio CD player with steering wheel mounted controls. Aircon is a $2250 option as is cruise control at $595. Inside, in what Ford calls its Supercab design, there is plenty of storage space - although getting in behind the seats could be easier - and a couple of good supportive bucket seats. The rake and reach adjustable steering column and height adjustable driver's seats makes it easy to get a good comfortable driving position. The extra ride height also makes it easy to get in and out of the RTV frequently as many potential buyers are likely to do. A front bench with column shift auto is optional but the centre space would be a squeeze for anything but a short trip. PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO PAY FOR IT!!!
