Ford Falcon EL XR6 Review

When Tickford joined forces with Ford Australia in the early 1990’s to create the EB XR6 and XR8 Falcon’s, in my opinion it was a return to form for the company.  For nine long years a V8 engine wasn’t offered in the Falcon range, leaving many Ford enthusiasts unsatisfied.  As a ten year old, I remember reading a copy of Wheels magazine that featured the then new EB Falcon S XR8 with the 5.0 litre V8 Windsor engine.  I really liked the understated styling combined with the V8 and 5 speed manual gearbox.  After seeing the EB XR8 as a young fella, I wanted to own an XR Falcon at some point in my life.  I always liked the Ford Falcon EL XR6’s and was excited to learn that it was just as fast as the early series EL XR8’s.  It had less power and torque than the XR8 but at 1527kg it was 40kg lighter.
