The new Ford Territory breaks new ground with a fresh look and feel for 2012
Australia's only locally designed and developed SUV; the Ford Territory is breaking new ground with a fresh look and feel for 2012.
Offering greater versatility and style for Australian drivers, the all-new Ford Territory offers the strength and power of a traditional SUV, making it perfect for weekend getaways while having the prestige, agility and nimbleness to navigate through any urban outing.
Here's a look at the all-new Territory:
All Territory models will have up to seven airbags including an Australian-built vehicle and Ford Territory first - a driver's knee airbag to minimise lower leg injuries in the event of a potential impact. The Territory has maintained its reputation as one of the safest vehicles on Australian roads with a five-star rating from the ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) testing program.
New six-speed automatic drive
Drivers can enjoy an all-new, six-speed automatic transmission across the whole Ford Territory range which contributes to its impressive fuel economy.
Another fuel-efficient feature is Electronic Power-Assisted Steering, which helps to reduce fuel consumption by reducing the need to have the engine constantly running the power steering system.
More power on the road
From impressive gains in power to exceptional towing capability, the next-generation Territory emerges as a clear segment leader in the power stakes. With a choice of a 2.7-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine or a 4.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine, the Territory range offers exceptional torque* and power which is ideal for towing.
From trips to the supermarket to long drives up the coast, you can theme your travel with a tune through Territory's USB/iPod connectivity for all popular personal entertainment devices.
On closer look, you will also notice a number of design changes which embrace Territory's 'Kinetic Design'*.
Exterior design changes include high-tech LED (Light-Emitting Diode)* position lamps and extensive enhancements to in-car sealing, insulation and noise/temperature absorption to optimise in-car comfort and refinement.
Review: The Ford Territory is feature packed containing a variety of different compartments for storage which is very handy; it is clear Ford were thinking of families when they designed the all-new Territory.
The reversing sensors and camera is a great feature as it makes a large SUV easy to park. While the car feels heavy, strong sticking to the road, the steering is light making it easy to manoeuvre for women.
It takes some time to get used to the fact that the music turns off when you reverse or open your door, but that is a great safety feature. Visibility is fantastic with the Territory, as there are next to no blind spots allowing a safe and easy drive. A spaceous vehicle the Ford Territory is very impressive with it's well thought out storage & accessories to suit families of all sizes.
Overall the Ford Territory is a great family car to drive, great value and I recommend you test drive one yourself.
The all-new Territory is now available with a sales price from $39,990* drive away. For more information on Territory visit: www.ford.com.au/territory
