2010 Ford Territory Crossover Launched in Melbourne
According to MotorAuthority.com, the new Territory is based on the same platform as the Australian version of Ford Falcon sedan, with the base model powered by a 4.0-liter straight-siex petrol engine available in two configurations: naturally aspirated and turbocharged. This unit delivers a maximum power of 255 hp (190 kW) while the turbocharged version is rated at 329 hp (245 kW). A six-speed ZF automatic transmission comes as standard on all models.
Speaking of exterior upgrades, the first thing you'll notice when comparing the old model to the new one is the redesigned grille which gives a sportier appearance to the Australian SUV. In addition, the 2010 variant adds restyled bumpers on both the front and the rear. 17-inch alloy wheels and body-colored bumpers, door handlers and exterior mirrors come as standard.
Interiors have been customized with a revised dash, the aforementioned source wrote, with Ford's Command Center interface system available as standard. A number of features are also factory-installed, including side curtain airbags and cruise control.
Ford Territory first saw daylight in 2004, being exclusively manufactured by Ford's production facility in Campbellfield (Victoria), Australia. Since it was officially launched, the Territory gained numerous awards, including Australia's Best Cars (Territory GHIA AWD - Best Recreational 4WD) in 2005 and Australian Design Award in 2004.
