Ford Australia on Endura: Why we didn't name it ‘Territory'

Public feedback contributed to Ford Australia’s decision to avoid reviving the Territory nameplate for the new large SUV it has released this month. The imported Endura joins the brand’s sports utility vehicle range just over two years after local production of the popular Territory ended. The 4.8-metre Endura is only a few centimetres shorter than the Territory, though there is no third-row seating option as offered by the only SUV to have been produced locally.
