Ford Australia has revealed the pricing of the 2011 Ford Territory, with the SZ model range set to start at $39,990, and the long-awaited diesel variants to attract a $3250 price premium over their petrol counterparts.
All three model variants – TX, TS and Titanium – include a rear-wheel drive petrol model, a rear-wheel drive diesel and an all-wheel drive diesel.
There is a $7000 difference between comparative TX and TS variants, and an $8000 difference between TS and Titanium variants.
Highlights of the TX model-line include a six-speed automatic transmission, five-star safety rating, 17-inch alloy wheels, iPod/USB integration, Bluetooth phone connectivity and cruise control.
The TS scores 18-inch alloy wheels and adds an eight-inch colour touch screen, front fog lights, dual-zone climate control, seven-seat capacity, premium audio system with amplifier and subwoofer and a reversing camera.
The range-topping Titanium gets unique 18-inch alloys, as well as LED running lights, privacy glass, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, satellite navigation with Traffic Message Channel, 10.2-inch rear DVD entertainment system and leather seat trim.
All variants will come with a 17-inch steel spare wheel.
The petrol-powered rear-wheel drive TX remains the entry-level model in the range. Its price has increased $100 over the outgoing Territory SY II.
The new TS starts at $2100 above the old model, and the same price jump applies to the Titanium, which replaces the outgoing Ghia nameplate.
As previously revealed, the new 2011 Territory will be available with the choice of a petrol or diesel engine.
The 4.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine produces 195kW of power and 391Nm of torque (just like the Falcon).
Available only in rear-wheel drive, the petrol-powered Territory variants will use 10.6 litres/100km of fuel on the combined cycle and emit 249g/km CO2.
The 2.7-litre V6 TDCi turbo-diesel produces 140kW and 440Nm of torque. The rear-wheel drive variants will use 8.2 litres/100km combined and emit 217g/km CO2, while the heavier all-wheel drive models will use 8.8 litres/100km and emit 232g/km CO2.
Rear-wheel drive models will have a maximum towing capacity of 2300kg, while the all-wheel drive diesel models step up to 2700kg.
