Second-gen Aussie Ford Territory SUV

Ford Australia has taken the wraps off the second-generation of its Territory SUV, which is set to go on sale in the land down under later this year. Based on the rear-wheel drive Falcon sedan platform, the Territory comes as standard as a rear-driver but has all-wheel drive as an option.

Featuring the latest take on Ford’s kinetic design language, the new Territory is instantly recognizable as a member of the Blue Oval’s expanding vehicle family and according to the automaker it provides a glimpse into the future of its global SUV styling. We can clearly see influences from the new 2011 Ford Explorer, especially in the tail lamps, as well as a 2012 Focus-inspired front air dam.

As mentioned, this is the second-generation Ford Territory SUV, which has been fully designed and engineered in Australia. It is powered by the same 4.0-liter straight-six that appears in the Falcon sedan or an optional turbodiesel engine. A high-performance turbocharged version of the gasoline model should be released further down the track. 

The Ford Territory is very specific to the Australian market and a few neighboring countries. They are currently no plans to bring the vehicle over the U.S., sadly.

  1. I love Ford Territory is good design model than 2011 Ford Explorer. I love Aussie Ford Falcon for years. I hate US Ford Taurus. I hate Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Malully and William Ford Clay are greedy to our US market. I support few US models Mustang, F150 and Super Duty F-Series.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Why is it sad that the Territory isn't coming stateside? Given the number of utility vehicles ford offers here, coupled with the thought that he Territory doesn't seem to offer anything special, it should stay where it is.
