Ford Fairmont (XD). 1979–82 (prod. 197,293 all types, incl. Falcon). 4-door sedan, 5-door wagon. F/R, 4098 cm³ (I6 OHV), 4942, 5766 cm³ (V8 OHV). Plush and squared-off Falcon, with base (already fairly luxurious, by 1979 standards) and Ghia luxury trims for sedan; base only for wagon. European Sports Pack with manual transmission for Ghia 1980–2. Unlike Falcon, all engine options through to 1982. Reminiscent of Ford Granada Mk II but actually bigger, based on XC Fairmont mechanicals and wheelbase. Replaced by XE in March 1982.
