US pick-up wars are about to be played out Down Under, with the best-seller in North America for the past 45 years – the Ford F Series – due to return to Ford Australia showrooms in an official, factory-backed capacity after a 16-year absence.

Ford Australia today confirmed the Ford F-150 will be coming to Australia next year, and sold via its national showroom network with a five year/unlimited kilometre warranty alongside the rest of its model range.

Before the Ford F-250 and Ford F-350 pick-ups were sold in Australia from 2001 to 2008, the Ford F-150 (and its predecessor the Ford F-100) were sold on-and-off in Australia across several generations from the 1970s to the 1990s.

The 2023 Ford F-150 due in Australia next year is the 14th generation of one of the world's biggest-selling vehicles; more than 40 million have been sold globally since 1948.

As Drive reported exclusively last year, Ford Australia has appointed Thailand-based engineering firm RMA to remanufacture the Ford F-150 from left-hand-drive to right-hand-drive in a new facility not far from the former Falcon assembly line in Broadmeadows.

Although RMA has never previously conducted a remanufacturing program of this scale – it so far has specialised in up-fitting Ford Ranger utes for police, military and mining use in South East Asia – the local F-150 program will be closely supervised by a team of Ford engineers in Australia and Detroit.

The announcement by Ford Australia today means Ford F Series fans across Australia will no longer be obliged to buy privately imported vehicles through local ‘chop shops’ who don’t have the same engineering resources, factory-backing, or millions of dollars in investment to convert vehicles from left-to right-hand drive to factory standards.

Demand for US pick-ups in Australia – such as Ram and Chevrolet – has more than tripled over the previous four years, and now Ford – the long-standing market leader in North America –wants in.

Although Ram and Chevrolet have a head-start on Ford in Australia, the blue oval brand plans to make up for lost ground.

Ford will initially offer two F-150 models – luxury XLT and Lariat grades –both powered by a twin-turbo V6 petrol engine.

Ford says it chose the twin turbo V6 petrol engine over V8 or diesel options because it’s the most popular choice in the US, as it promises similar power and torque to the Ram and Chevrolet V8s but with better fuel-efficiency.

For now, Ford Australia says there are no plans to introduce the electric Ford F-150 Lightning pick-up, hybrid models, or the hardcore Ford F-150 Raptor locally.

However, Ford Australia has left the door open to the possibility of adding other F Series models based on the success of the launch of the 2023 Ford F-150 locally.

The factory-backed 2023 Ford F-150 will be remanufactured from left- to right-hand-drive in a new facility a few suburbs away from the former Falcon production line in Broadmeadows.

Four F-150 vehicles have already arrived for local testing and one example has already been converted to right-hand-drive locally as a test mule.

Drive understands the program is already running six months late due to travel restrictions and other limitations imposed by COVID-19 – the Ford F-150 was originally due in local showrooms by the end of this year – but the deadline has been pushed back to mid-2023, pending any further delays.

While local market leader Ram offers five models in Australia, and Chevrolet – via its network of General Motors Speciality Vehicles (GMSV) dealers – offers three versions of the Silverado, Ford will initially focus on just two model grades of the F-150.

However, both Ram and Chevrolet will be outgunned by Ford Australia’s vast dealer network, which is more than triple the size of the number of Ram and Chevrolet outlets locally.

The Ford F-150 will be offered by all 180 Ford showrooms nationally; by comparison Ram and Chevrolet each have approximately 55 outlets.

Ford Australia is yet to announce local production forecasts or job numbers, but Drive understands it is gearing up to remanufacture the F-150 on a massive scale.

Ford Australia says it will use a significant number of local suppliers – some of which were previously within the parts supply ecosystem when Toyota, Holden and Ford manufactured vehicles here – however at this stage it has not provided a split on local versus imported parts.

Factory-backed Ram and Chevrolet vehicles – converted under one roof by the Walkinshaw Automotive Group, the former parent company of Holden Special Vehicles – each have approximately 500 re-engineered parts, many of which are sourced from local suppliers.

The investment to “tool up” a left-to right-have-drive remanufacturing program of a US pick-up is estimated to cost between $10 million and $12 million per model.

The engineering and tooling required for factory-grade steering systems and dashboards each cost in excess of $1 million, a cost smaller ‘chop shops’ simply cannot fund.

Furthermore, factory-backed conversions such as those by Ram Trucks Australia and GMSV – and soon Ford F-150s reassembled by RMA – are crash-tested to prove the remanufactured vehicle meets local safety standards; small independent converters and ‘chop shops’ don’t go to the same lengths to prove their engineering work.

While engineering firm RMA has never taken on a project of this scale before – remanufacturing the F-150 in serious volume to factory standards – Ford says the project is being overseen by a former manager of the Broadmeadows assembly line who went on to become the manufacturing director of Ford of Thailand, where Ranger utes sourced for Australia are made.

The last time Ford sold the F Series in Australia – between 2001 and 2007 – it imported the vehicles from Brazil, already built in right-hand-drive.

Back then, Ford Australia offered just two models – the F250 and F350 – both in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations and the choice of petrol or diesel V8 power.

Ford Australia sold just shy of 10,000 examples of the F Series between 2001 and 2008, with the most popular variant being the F250 4x4.

By comparison, Ram Trucks Australia has sold more than 10,000 new pick-ups in the past three years alone – and the ramp-up has been phenomenal, from about 700 sales in 2018 to more than 4000 last year.

Ford is yet to provide details such as final Gross Combination Mass, Gross Vehicle Mass, and payload because of spec differences between US and Australian models.

Unique features such as the workbench tailgate and stow-away gear lever (so the driver can use a lap top when parked) are expected to be offered locally but not yet confirmed. The fully reclining driver’s seat (to take a break on long drives) is expected to remain exclusive to top-end US models for now.

Ford says each model will be equipped with the full suite of advanced safety tech, including blind zone warning, rear cross-traffic alert and reverse autonomous emergency braking.

In a presentation to media the boss of Ford Australia, Andrew Birkic, said: “This will be the only Ford program of its type globally. This is a significant team effort and we bring (the F-150 to Australia) with the backing of Ford, the engineering smarts of our local product development team, manufacturing know-how of RMA automotive.”

The Ford Australia boss said the Ford F-150 was the jewel in Ford’s crown and so all care will be taken to ensure vehicles completed locally will meet Ford global standards.

“It’s a much loved and desired icon and we are super proud to bring it back,” said Mr Birkic. “We know it’s got much more than credential. It has road presence, the name, and quite frankly, an aura.”

Natalie Manariti, who is part of the team overseeing the Ford F-150 program in Australia, said in a presentation to media: “Customers can be assured that we (will) maintain the same Ford quality and reliability”.

“Our product development team – the same team that brought your next generation Ranger and Everest – have played a key role in bringing F-150 to the market.

“Working in conjunction with our US counterparts, Ford Australia’s product development engineers will collaborate with RMA Automotive to ensure a seamless … conversion.

“There is genuine Ford US and Australian DNA all over this truck. We are even employing our own special vehicle (operations) team. An Australian group of engineers who have the experience to work on projects just like this, in conjunction with … RMA Automotive.”
