ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

The last Australian Ford models are headed to auction. The brand will soon auction off the last Ford Falcon sedan, Territory SUV and Falcon Ute before Ford Australia closes down its production for good.

The specific "final" Fords are a blue Falcon XR6 sedan, a gray Falcon Ute XR6 Turbo and a silver Territory Titanium. The Ford Falcon is a full-size, rear-wheel-drive sedan, while the Falcon Ute is essentially an El Camino-like pickup version. The Territory is an SUV, sized between the American Ford Escape and Ford Explorer.

These final Fords mark a major milestone for the automaker, which is shutting down Australian production after years of building cars in the country. Ford says producing specific vehicles in Australia for the Australian market is too expensive and will likely send global Ford models to Australia instead. General Motors made a similar proclamation recently, closing down local production of its Australian Holden models.

If you're interested in following the auction, head over to http://www.fordfinal4.com.au/. Ford says the cars won't quite be the last ones down the production line, but rather the last models they will sell, as the brand plans to keep the very last examples for its own collection.
