Ford Territory

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 starting with the $30,360 Territory TX (RWD). Higher-spec versions, like the $54,890 Territory Titanium (4x4) 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.

Ford Territory Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Territory here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Should we replace our Holden Commodore with a Subaru Outback?

    A car with a little extra ground clearance is great for camping as it often allows you to get a little farther away from the masses in their caravans who tend to huddle around the shower block at bush campsites.

    The Subaru Outback is a good, solid choice and if you can find an independent workshop to service it, you’ll avoid the cost of dealership prices. And you’re right, the all-wheel-drive would be great for gravel roads. Another vehicle to look at would be a late-model Ford territory diesel which is big and clever inside and has the option of all-wheel-drive. The diesel engine is a plus on the bush where that fuel is more readily available (in really remote areas) and gives you more range for big holidays in the mulga.

    Don’t rule out things like the Mitsubishi Pajero, either, which won’t be as around-town friendly, but is a proven quantity and is absolutely tremendous off-road. The same goes for a Toyota Prado or Nissan Pathfinder prior to the current model (which is a bit less hard-core adventure).

  • Ford Territory 2010: Variety of electrical issues

    As well as a fix, I’d also be looking for a new auto electrician, Troy. Every one of these problems can, I reckon, be traced back to the car’s body computer, a component that Ford had all sorts of trouble with in its Australian made cars over the years. It’s a well known problem, can be an intermittent one and will definitely produce the glitches you’re seeing. A new body computer can also often mean a new key which has to be electronically coded to the computer before anything will work again.

  • Ford Territory 2013: ICC unit is not working

    Modern cars are really susceptible to power `spikes’ when the battery is being reconnected. Often, these power surges can damage electronic equipment and perhaps that’s what’s happened to the unit in your Territory.

    If that’s the case, the unit will need to be removed and repaired by a specialist. The worst-case scenario may involve an entire replacement ICC. It could also be that the ICC requires a code to re-boot it after being disconnected from a power source. If that’s the case, a visit to a Ford dealership might be all that is required.

  • Ford Territory 2006: Bowser keeps clicking off when I fill up with petrol

    A lot of cars seem to suffer from this. The fuel seems to back-up in the filler neck, and that’s what causes the bowser to click off (as a safety measure, to prevent fuel being sprayed around the forecourt). There are three things that seem to help with this.

    The first is to place the bowser nozzle half way into the car’s fuel neck. Pushing it all the way in will often make the problem worse, and only half poking it in seems to have the effect of allowing the car to swallow the fuel faster without it backing up. The second thing to try is to insert the nozzle and then rotate it 90-degrees to one side or the other. Again, this seems to re-align the nozzle in the filler neck and can help. The third trick is to pull the trigger on the nozzle only part way. That slows the fuel flow down a little, but if it prevents the bowser continually clicking off, it’s still faster.
