No early closure for Ford Australia manufacturing plants

Ford Australia today confirmed the exact closing date of its Victorian assembly line and engine plant — October 7, 2016.

Ford edges closer to post-Territory plans, two options to be explored

Decision time is edging closer for Ford Australia, as it seeks to finalise its plan of attack for the massive family SUV market post the demise of the locally-made Territory in October 2016.

Ford Australia explains the new model code retains the existing FG component, continuing to pay tribute to the long-running ‘Fairmont’ and ‘Ghia’ nameplates, and reintroduces the letter X, which featured in the designations of every Falcon from the original 1960 XK to the XH ute that was produced until 1999...

2015 Ford Territory revealed

  The last ever version of Australia's only locally built SUV, the 2015 Ford Territory, has been revealed officially.

2015 Ford Territory sprung?

Styling changes to the final Australian-made 2015 Ford Territory, due to launch by November this year, will be very minor indeed if this pair of images obtained by CarAdvice prove representative.  Blink twice and you’ll miss them, but these two images — sourced from a reliable location — appear to indeed be shots of the next Territory, given they feature very mild differences to the current model...
