Ford Australia - Long History of Making Cars

Ford Motor Company of Australia Limited (Ford Australia), a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company of Canada, manufactures, imports and distributes small, medium and large passenger vehicles, together with four-wheel drive and commercial vehicles, for domestic and export markets.

Ford Australia was started in Geelong, Victoria in 1925. It is the third largest automotive manufacturer in Australia with two plant locations and more than 3,000 car history

Ford Australia has a long history of building vehicles for the domestic market.

The ever popular Ford Falcon has long been a popular choice for businesses and the government. Ford is also the vehicle of choice for most taxi providers.

Ford has also cornered the commercial market with its range of Ford Transit vehicles that has proved popular with Australia Post for its large fleet of mail delivery vans.

The Campbellfield plant in Melbourne manufactures the Falcon sedan and utility, as well as the highly popular Territory SUV. Ford’s acclaimed in-line 4.0-litre six cylinder naturally aspirated turbo and EcoLPi engines are manufactured at the company’s Geelong plant.

Ford Australia also has a strong portfolio of imported vehicles – including the Fiesta, Focus, Mondeo, Ford Kuga SUV, Ranger pickup truck and Transit commercial vehicles.

These imported vehicles, together with the locally manufactured vehicles, incorporate popular in-car features and smart driving technologies that help to improve fuel efficiency and safety without sacrificing Ford’s renowned reputation for dynamic, fun-to-drive vehicles.

Apart from Ford's History of making cars in Australia, they are also known for the commitment to helping the community by running a number of incentive programs to help charities and individuals by fund raising etc.

Whilst Ford is closing down its operations in Australia in the coming years, Ford has made a commitment to bring new and exciting cars to Australia as an importer.
