The facelifted FG X Ford Falcon replaced the 2011 FG MkII Falcon model in November 2014 with mostly cosmetic changes to update
the model.
This model marked the end of the Ford Falcon model after being in production since 1960. Production of the Falcon discontinued on 7 October 2016. The model was not replaced by any other specific global Ford model, with the Ford Mondeo taking the role as the largest passenger vehicle and the Ford Mustang as the performance model in the Ford Australia range.
