MELBOURNE– Ford’s commitment to Australia continues to grow beyond billions in local R&D as it expands its award-winning lineup, including the launch of Mountune Performance Kits so Fiesta ST and Focus ST can tune in even more excitement to the already acclaimed hot hatch duo.

“Our Australian R&D and product investments are paying off as we transform Ford in Australia and customers respond to our new vehicles,” says Graeme Whickman, President and CEO, Ford of Australia. “We think our new Mountune Performance packs will bring even more excitement as we expand our performance vehicle lineup as part of plans to launch 20 new vehicles by 2020.”

The kits will be available in Australia by mid-year for the first time after being added to the recently announced Ford Licensed Accessories (FLA) program for 2016. Introduced in February 2016 the FLA program will allow Ford Australia to grow the range of accessories available for sale, back them with a comprehensive Ford warranty, offer aftermarket accessory products, including some bearing the Ford logos, that have undergone a robust governance process and quality assessment by Ford.
