Ford Territory

Following an extensive development program the covers have finally come off the highly anticipated new-model Ford Territory.

The Australian-designed-and-developed SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) has undergone an extensive visual update inside and out. The new Territory wears a stylish suit cut from Ford's kinetic design language and its bold new look makes it instantly recognizable as a member of Ford's comprehensive model family.

Redesigning the multi-award-winning Territory meant building on its already clean and attractive looks to create a vehicle that serves as a sophisticated and sporty urban wagon for weekdays and a family getaway vehicle on weekends.

Externally, significant changes to Territory's styling have resulted in a stunning new look. At the front, the vehicle uses an all-new tri-plane front-end architecture. The new trapezoid-shaped main grille is one of the new Territory's most noticeable updates.

New slim-line headlights with projector beam technology are another stand-out feature of the new Territory's front end. LED (Light-Emitting Diode) position lamps have been integrated into its redesigned front bumper.

Rounding out new Territory's exterior is a new catalogue of locally designed wheels, which will be available in diameters of 17 and 18 inches in model-specific designs.

On the inside, the popular SUV maintains its famed ability for almost endless adaptation to Australian lifestyles. Its car-like cabin is sporty and sophisticated.

The new Territory is fitted with an all-new Instrument Panel featuring – for the first time – a 20cm touch screen. Territory owners will find the technologically advanced touch screen simple for both front occupants to operate.

A new four-spoke steering wheel puts drivers in control of the new Territory's impressive handling capabilities and gives finger-tip control to audio and cruise control functions.
