The Ford Falcon FG is a full-sized car that was produced by Ford Australia from 2008 to 2014. It was the first iteration of the seventh and last generation of this Australian-made model. Its range no longer featured the Fairmont luxury badge, replaced instead by the G Series.

The editor of new cars Tim Beissmann commented on the FORD FALCON FG for a review published by the CARADVICE website: “Ford Falcon FG X fails to fire, slumps to lowest monthly sales in nameplate's history. Ford sold just 381 Falcon sedans across Australia in January, down 17.4 percent compared with the same month in 2014, and down on humble results in October and November 396 and 411, respectively when the Falcon FG Mk2 was deep in runout. Disturbingly for Ford, the Falcon’s January total was more than 300 units fewer than the equivalent sales performance of the Mitsubishi 380 – the last Australian-made large sedan to disappear from our market – in the first month of its final year on sale 692 in January 2008. Despite the dire numbers, Ford Australia public affairs director Wes Sherwood says the company is “very pleased” with the performance of the Falcon FG X, and says its plan to forge on with local production until next year remains “on track”. “We’re very pleased with how the new model is performing, particularly at the retail [level], and that’s what we’re really going to focus on, really driving those retail Falcon and Territory sales. The feedback we’re getting on the new Falcon is very good,” Sherwood said. Ford’s Australian sales have declined every year since 2004 when they hit 135,172, dropping to 79,703 last year”
