2015 Ford Territory specifications detailed

The 2015 Ford Territory will benefit from a host of specification upgrades when it goes on sale in Australia in November this year.

The SZ MkII series represents the final update for the 10-year-old Territory, with production of the Falcon-based large SUV set to finish when Ford Australia closes its production facilities in October 2016.

Some subtle styling tweaks are evident at the front and rear, and in the cabin of the SZ MkII, but overall the 2015 Ford Territory is visually very similar to the model it replaces.

The upgraded Territory gets a much-needed technology boost, however, headlined by the introduction of Ford’s SYNC2 multimedia system.

All variants of the 2015 Ford Territory range – the TX, TS and Titanium monikers remain – will come standard with:

  • SYNC2 Emergency Assistance
  • SYNC2 with 8.0-inch integrated colour touchscreen
  • Australian-specific voice control system developed in partnership with Nuance Digital Radio (DAB+)
  • Dual antenna system
  • WiFi hot spot
  • New 17- and 18-inch alloy wheel designs
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Reverse-view camera
  • Two USB ports, SD card slot and AUX jack

The flagship Territory Titanium also scores rain-sensing wipers for the first time.

As before, all three Territory variants are available with three drivetrain options: rear-wheel-drive petrol, rear-wheel-drive diesel and all-wheel-drive diesel. The 4.0-litre inline-six petrol and 2.7-litre V6 turbo diesel engines carry over unchanged into the updated line-up.

Pricing now remains the final piece 2015 Ford Territory puzzle, though that is expected to be revealed next month ahead of the SUV's introduction to showrooms in November alongside the updated Falcon FG X.
