Anyone wanting to explore the vastness of Australia will appreciate the fuel efficient, cutting edge diesel engine that powers the Ford Territory. Town drivers receive a similar level of economy, while enjoying a surprisingly quiet drive for a diesel. With the Ford Territory, The Ford Motor Company of Australia can also boast a vehicle that is far kinder to the environment.
In comparison to the petrol fuelled alternatives, carbon emissions from this 2.7L V6 Common Rail Turbo Diesel engine are significantly lower, which is an added bonus for environmentally aware motorists. Just as pleasing is the high level of Smart Technology that makes travelling in the Ford Territory a real exercise in motoring pleasure.
The centre console of the Ford Territory houses a USB port, which allows full enjoyment of the music stored on an iPod through buttons conveniently placed on the steering wheel. An 8-inch colour touch screen provides crystal clear access to a full iPod playlist as well as a satellite navigation system and Bluetooth mobile phone integration. All this and more is packaged in a rugged, but stylish body.
A large, chrome detailed lower and a thin upper grille complimented by LED marker lights feature on the front with horizontal style tail lights in the rear. 17-inch alloy wheels are controlled by an anti-lock braking system and an electronic stability control system. Safety for this 7-seater is further enhanced by airbags that include protection for a driver’s knees. Being chosen by Australian emergency services is confirmation of the Ford Territory’s reliability.
