The Blue Oval has said that the Territory crossover will come with an overhauled design for the exterior and interior, as well as a new diesel engine.
Word has it that the new Territory will be fitted with the Land Rover Discovery’s 2.7-liter turbo-diesel V6 engine that produces 140kW of power and 445Nm of torque. That much power translates to a combined cycle fuel consumption of 10.2 liters/100km and a north to 100km/h time of 12.7 seconds. Joining the Territory’s new turbo-diesel engine could be another powertrain variant in the form of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, giving the Australian market a number of options as to what range of the Territory they can get.
Bob Graziano, Ford Australia’s president and CEO, is confident that the new Ford Territory will continue to be a hot seller in the Land Down Under. “This is an exceptional SUV,” he said. “It wears an exciting new look and will boast an extensive list of technical highlights. The Ford Australia team is taking the Territory to an all-new level of performance, refinement and quality, and customers will definitely experience these advancements when they drive it."
The unveiling of the 2011 Territory is still yet to be revealed, although we wouldn’t be surprised if it happens in the middle of next year at the Australian International Motor Show.
All other details, including specifications and pricing, will be revealed in the next few months.
