Ford Territory 2016
Carsguide Ewan Kennedy had this to say at the time: Though now in the old-stager class, Ford’s Territory is still pretty impressive, chiefly due to the fact that it’s Aussie designed and built. It’s a crying shame the final one rolled off the assembly line last week.You can read the full review here.
This is what Ewan Kennedy liked most about this particular version of the Ford Territory: Smooth, powerful and quiet engine, Much needed tech improvements, Practical and large inside
The 2016 Ford Territory carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2700 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Ford Territory 2016 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Territory 2016 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why is the transmission in my 2016 Ford Territory intermittently down-shifting?
Some Territories of around this vintage experienced a problem with a dud output-speed sensor within the automatic transmission. The sensor could cause an intermittent fault where the transmission wasn’t telling the rest of the car how fast it was going and, in some cases, could cause the transmission to suddenly shift back to first gear. That sounds a lot like your symptoms. Ford reckons it had this problem fixed by early 2013, well before your car was built, but I reckon it’d still be worth a check of the sensor’s operation via an electronic scan.
The other recurring problem with the Territory’s transmission was when the transmission cooler failed internally and the gearbox oil and the coolant became mixed. That destroyed the gearbox both mechanically and electronically in pretty quick time and if that’s your problem, a rebuilt or replacement transmission is the only fix.Show more
Best options when buying a mid-size SUV?
The Kia Sorento, our Car of the Year in 2015, gets The Tick from me. It has everything you want and need and is a good drive, with a seven-year warranty. If it's out of your price range, go for the smaller Kia Sportage.Show more
Best SUV replacement for Mercedes C-Class?
It's an interesting put-down of the Mercedes-Benz. The Territory is an all-round good car that has been developed for Australian roads, it might be more comfortable than the 'Benz, but I wouldn't say it was of a better quality. You could also look at a Toyota Kluger or a Kia Sorento, both of which would handle the roads well, be comfortable and are of a decent quality.Show more
