Car reviews - Ford - Territory - 5-dr wagon range
Six years and $500 million later, Ford’s all-new Territory cross-over
23 Apr 2004
FAR more than a higher-riding, more versatile version of the humble Falcon wagon, the all-new Territory cross-over is nothing short of a coup for Ford Australia, which has spent $500 million to develop what it believes is the future of mass motoring Down Under. Available as a rear-wheel drive like the Falcon upon which it’s based for less than $40,000, the Territory range spans three variants, each available with an intelligent all-wheel drive system and third row seating. Promising car-like manoeuvrability with people-mover interior flexibility and a fair degree of off-road ability, Territory delivers it all in a functional, refined package that sets new benchmarks for Australian-built vehicles. Increased weight and fuel consumption aside, the cleverly designed Territory should easily attract enough customers to make it Australia’s top-selling SUV.
