The Ford Falcon (XW) is a full-size car that was produced by Ford Australia from 1969 to 1970. It was the third iteration of the second generation of this Australian-made model and also included the Ford Futura (XW) and the Ford Fairmont (XW)—the luxury-oriented version of the Falcon.


The XW Falcon was released in June 1969[1] replacing the XT Falcon. The XW was an extensive facelift of the XT, featuring a new grille and tail lights. Almost all exterior panels were new and the interior was extensively redesigned.[2]

Model range

The XW Falcon range featured eight passenger vehicles and three commercial models.[1]

  • Ford Falcon Sedan
  • Ford Falcon Wagon
  • Ford Falcon 500 Sedan
  • Ford Falcon 500 Wagon
  • Ford Futura Sedan
  • Ford Fairmont Sedan
  • Ford Fairmont Wagon
  • Ford Falcon GT
  • Ford Falcon Utility
  • Ford Falcon Van
  • Ford Falcon 500 Utility

The Futura was new for the XW, reviving a name last used in the 1965 XP Falcon range. A Grand Sport rally option package was available on Falcon 500, Futura & Fairmont sedans.[3]


The limited production, high performance Falcon GT-HO was released two months after the mainstream models. A further development, the GT-HO Phase II was released on 24 August 1970.[4]


3.1 litre & 3.6 litre in-line six cylinder engines carried over from the XT Falcon as did the 4.9 litre V8. A 5.8 litre V8 (the 351 Windsor) was introduced initially with the XW, as was later the 351 Cleveland in the Phase 1.5 and 2 model.


Production of the XW Falcon range totalled 105,785 vehicles.[1] 2,287 XW Falcon GTs and 662 XW GT-HOs were built.[5]


The XW Falcon was replaced by the XY Falcon in October 1970.
