Ford Australia struck gold with the original Ford Territory.
Launched in 2004, the large Territory SUV was the perfect car for the time. In fact, it worked so well that it stole sales from Ford's traditional Falcon station wagon, forcing the model's decline and eventual demise in 2010. Based on the Falcon platform, the Territory is available with the choice of rear or all-wheel-drive, and in a range of trim levels. Higher-spec versions feature all-wheel-drive as standard. In 2011, the Territory gained a 2.7-litre turbo-diesel engine, developed during Ford's partnership with Land Rover, providing the power and torque of the big Aussie inline six-cylinder without the fuel consumption. The Territory has reached the end of its journey, however, thanks to the closing of Ford's Australian operations.
