The right products for your business
Ford has one of the strongest product offerings in the Australian market with a vehicle to suit every type of business – regardless of industry, location or fleet size. Our brand pillars of Smart, Safety, Sustainability and Quality are evident in every model in our range.

Understanding your fleet needs
Getting to know your fleet requirements is critical to ensuring we provide the most comprehensive solutions for your business.
Our four key fleet pillars help determine the vehicles best suited to your needs.
We understand you may have specific CO2 requirements that eliminate some vehicles from your selection and highlight others for purchase.
For this reason, we offer a wide range of vehicles that are designed to reduce emissions without compromising on power and performance.
For any business with a fleet, the health and safety of its drivers is paramount.
That is why a high safety rating is often a mandatory requirement. And why certain vehicles are more suitable than others. Thanks to our cutting-edge technology, Ford has one of the largest selections of vehicles with a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating.
