Car reviews - Ford - Territory - 5-dr wagon range
Territory's as practical as ever, but adds new diesel and improved petrol engines
5 Apr 2011
FOR once the advertising rang true. The original Territory was amazing, providing BMW levels of dynamics in a classy, comfortable, versatile and affordable package.
Seven years on from launch it has stood the test of time remarkably too, for in almost every way that matters, the competition has yet to eclipse this modern Australian classic.
But familiarity means buyers want something newer, different and more exciting, while the Ford’s prodigious thirst could no longer go unaddressed, so here it is – the SZ Territory revamp, complete with the diesel engine that we have waited far too long for.
