Tell me all you know about the territory

Hi,
This is my first post on a car forum ever! I'm a girl who wants to know all there is about the ford territory. I know nothing about cars but got an assignment to chose any car to make an advertising campaign for, so I picked the territory. So I was wondering if you guys who seem to know everything about the car could answer a few quick questions for me?

* How much is it in australia (4wd and AWD) and is it considered to be cheap or expensive compared to its competitors?
* Which one is better 4WD or AWD and why?
* Who's the car aimed at (eg men in mid 40s? 50s? women? middle class? rich? etc.) i.e what's the market they are trying to reach
* If you were going to sell the car what kind of magazines, websites, newspapers would you put your ads in?
* What would you use the car for ( recreation, going to and from work? etc)
* Who are the car's competitors and how do they match up?
* Reasons why people would buy the car?

Feel free to let me know about anything else that you think is good to know and if there's anywhere I can get some brochures or good pics of the car!
That's it for me from now will think of some more questions later... please help me because I know nothing about cars and I am when it comes to cars.... Thank you to those who help me out or those who take the time to read this. I shall be forever grateful

Re: Tell me all you know about the territory

* How much is it in australia (4wd and AWD) and is it considered to be cheap or expensive compared to its competitors? - Go to www.ford.com.au - there are three different models to chose from with different prices. Its competitors are the Toyota Klugar, and also the Holden Adventura. To get prices for these two, go to www.toyota.com.au and www.holden.com.au.

* Which one is better 4WD or AWD and why? Weird Question, 4WD has more capabilities then AWD. Depends, some 4WD have low and high gears, which is more capable on steep hill decents etc....

* Who's the car aimed at (eg men in mid 40s? 50s? women? middle class? rich? etc.) i.e what's the market they are trying to reach The car is probarly aimed more at family types, with its roomyness and the third row seat option. Ford is trying to push the territory to the Wagon market so it can eventually phase the wagon out. I guess you could say the people who would be mostly likely to buy it would be aged between 30 and 60....

* If you were going to sell the car what kind of magazines, websites, newspapers would you put your ads in? If i was going to sell the car, id be putting in 4wd Magazines, aswell as Wheels and Motor. Newspapers are good, but the best form of advertising would probarly be TV or RADIO... .

* What would you use the car for ( recreation, going to and from work? etc) Id use the car for driving on dirt roads, otherwise it would be just a work hack....

* Who are the car's competitors and how do they match up? Holden Adventura and Toyota Klugar - buy the latest wheels magazine and find out!!!!

* Reasons why people would buy the car? Size, space, drivability and probarly price. Compared to the other two main competitors, the Territory is the cheapest by fair, and has the best options.

Have a look at this comparison of the Territory, Adventura and the Kluger:

Re: Tell me all you know about the territory

I'm amazed that Clueless28 could find fordforums but was unable to do her own research on some of the other questions, like price and AWD v RWD. (Though I've made a couple of stuff ups here too, like calling the base model XT and talking about side airbags when I meant curtain airbags).

Don't get me wrong. I think it's a great idea to go and pick the brains of the people here, but a little preliminary research would not have gone astray. A bit like RTFM!

Call me old school, but if I'm asking a person a question, I make sure I'm as fully informed before hand, especially when it came to doing assignments. No such thing as getting them off the internet in my day.

And don't get me started on having to walk to school in the snow, three miles there and five miles back while balancing my caculus book on my head.

Re: Tell me all you know about the territory

Well, http://www.ford.com.au/territory will help get you started.

Then get your parents to take you to a dealership and chat to the salesman. Becareful, he WILL try to sell your parents things (possibly of the car persuasion).

Not to mention having to chop 5 ton of firewood with a blunt razor blade when you got home!

Re: Tell me all you know about the territory

Monty Python's Flying Circus -
"Four Yorkshiremen"

[ from the album Live At Drury Lane, 1974 ]

The Players:
Michael Palin - First Yorkshireman;
Graham Chapman - Second Yorkshireman;
Terry Jones - Third Yorkshireman;
Eric Idle - Fourth Yorkshireman;

The Scene:
Four well-dressed men are sitting together at a vacation resort.
'Farewell to Thee' is played in the background on Hawaiian guitar.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Aye, very passable, that, very passable bit of risotto.

SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
Nothing like a good glass of Château de Chasselas, eh, Josiah?

THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
You're right there, Obadiah.

FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Who'd have thought thirty year ago we'd all be sittin' here drinking Château de Chasselas, eh?

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
In them days we was glad to have the price of a cup o' tea.

SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
A cup o' cold tea.

FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Without milk or sugar.

THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Or tea.

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
In a cracked cup, an' all.

FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Oh, we never had a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper.

SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
The best we could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.

THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor.

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Because we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, "Money doesn't buy you happiness, son".

FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Aye, 'e was right.

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Aye, 'e was.

FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
I was happier then and I had nothin'. We used to live in this tiny old house with great big holes in the roof.

SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
House! You were lucky to live in a house! We used to live in one room, all twenty-six of us, no furniture, 'alf the floor was missing, and we were all 'uddled together in one corner for fear of falling.

THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Eh, you were lucky to have a room! We used to have to live in t' corridor!

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Oh, we used to dream of livin' in a corridor! Would ha' been a palace to us. We used to live in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woke up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! House? Huh.

FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Well, when I say 'house' it was only a hole in the ground covered by a sheet of tarpaulin, but it was a house to us.

SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
We were evicted from our 'ole in the ground; we 'ad to go and live in a lake.

THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
You were lucky to have a lake! There were a hundred and fifty of us living in t' shoebox in t' middle o' road.

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
Cardboard box?

THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Aye.

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
You were lucky. We lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.

SECOND YORKSHIREMAN:
Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at six o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of 'ot gravel, work twenty hour day at mill for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would thrash us to sleep with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!

THIRD YORKSHIREMAN:
Well, of course, we had it tough. We used to 'ave to get up out of shoebox at twelve o'clock at night and lick road clean wit' tongue. We had two bits of cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at mill for sixpence every four years, and when we got home our Dad would slice us in two wit' bread knife.

FOURTH YORKSHIREMAN:
Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.

FIRST YORKSHIREMAN:
And you try and tell the young people of today that ..... they won't believe you.

ALL:
They won't!
