Default All-New Ford Territory - Revealed

I feel this should give the reigning king Toyota a good run for their money if introduced in the Indian market and priced wisely. Fortuner need to feel the heat from someone from the same league rather than the X1.

Quote:
Ford Australia has unveiled the new Territory SUV for the market down under.
Despite some components such as the doors, mirrors, liftgate and assorted trim carrying over from the outgoing Territory, apparently this is a new second generation model. A signifacant amount of external redesigning is found in the front and rear ends, hood, quarter panels, fenders and lighting all around. The interior has also been completely redesigned although the overal layout remains the same as a 5- or 7-seater.
The new Territory was designed and developed by Ford's Australian unit but the SUV likely features design elements we will see in the next Escape (North America) and Kuga (Europe) generations which are due later this year as 2012 models.
Unfortunately, Ford doesn't provide any powertrain details on the model and wastes its press release with glowing prose on the model's 'kinetic design' features. And the release doesn't mention anything about the TDCi badge on the top level Titanium model either. A turbo-diesel edition was expected for the first time in the Territory range. Undoubtedly, Ford Australia will release powertrain details prior to market launch in April.
The Territory is the work of Ford Australia's design team, overseen by Chris Svensson, who's Design Director for Ford Asia Pacific and Africa.
"We worked hard to ensure the new Territory was an evolution of the original model and, through the use of Ford's distinct design DNA, also gave a hint of the future," said Svensson, in the press release.
But looking at the images of the Territoty here, one can only hope its stodgier elements will be left aside for its sibling Kuga and Escape models.
Many more details in the press release below.

It looks really nice ! But i must say the screen seems to have a very low resolution.Maybe they can introduce the one present in Focus.By the way love the dual boot lid concept :-) Looks cool if not maybe practical.

A good looking vehicle. If at all this reaches Indian shores, hope it comes with all features it actually comes with. And it arrives here before its EOL.

This being RHD, can we expect this on Indian roads ? can this one among the 8-models the Ford had announced sometime back ?

Looks pretty nice from the front. Side and rear looks ain't nothing to write home about though. The interiors are pleasing and those sport alloys are nice too. As others have already pointed out, it would be great to see it on Indian roads.

Good one.. if it get introduced with same set of features and priced right, certainly can give Fortuner a run for its money.

Looks better but I hope its not a guzzler just like its predecessor. The company I work for had a whole fleet of Territories but sold the whole lot just because of its high fuel cost.
