Re: Territory First Drive and Pics on Carpoint

A good read, but like they say no performance of the line for the heavy vehicle it is,I just wish they were looking at putting the Boss into the Territory,and then I would look seriously at one,it need's a V8 option.

Re: Territory First Drive and Pics on Carpoint

Who else gets the feeling the print media doesn't like the way Ford has released its info of the BA firstly and now Territory. It's been great for us online because we get the information so quickly it must take the shine of what the print media are putting out (personally I say suffer to them) although I can also sense that if they do have a criticism of anything with a car they drive it gets a "magnifying glass treatment". I think Ford's absolutely excellent use of the internet (in my opinion) has pissed off the print media and being only human, when you're pissed off you do take some form of revenge when given the opportunity.

Re: Territory First Drive and Pics on Carpoint

Yeah, they did sort of pissed off at Ford. Which, as I see it, meant they tried to have a go at the Territory during the report.

I personally can't wait to see the Territory on sale. I hope it sells well.

Re: Territory First Drive and Pics on Carpoint

They definately didn't seem too happy with Ford doing the drip-feed campaign again. Probably a combination of the fact that they want to know a lot in one go, and the fact that they can't get an exclusive of specs etc. because it is on the net first.

One thing I seriously don't understand though is the acceleration factor. Why the hell does it need to fly off the mark? It is a bloody soft-roader...how many people are going to need to drag at the lights in something like this? Sure it needs a bit of go to merge with traffic etc. but by the sound of it they reckon it wouldn't be able to keep up with a pushbike. Which is most definately wrong.

Even the SOHC 220 motor would be ok. I really fail to see why they have engineered this vehicle from the ground up, in AWD and RWD, yet don't even have the V8 available on the RWD models. No question the I6 will take up the bulk of sales, but you have to have the V8 as an option at least. Silly product planning in my books, just plain silly..

Yes a Territory(AWD) in the new Green with a SOHC 220 would be my ideal vehicle,

Re: Territory First Drive and Pics on Carpoint

Lets hope the Territory II will get the SOHC motor. Shouldn't take too long for the boys in the stamping plant to come up with new dies to enable the motor to fit in the engine bay..

Rumour has it that series II will have a v8 option.

Digressing for a minute, how similar is the Territory to the Freestyle??

Re: Territory First Drive and Pics on Carpoint

I believe the only things Territory and Freestyle have in common are the fact that they look similar...and that they are new AWDs. Not totally sure though.

I also seem to remember hearing that Ford USA seemed to be very impressed with Territory's dynamics compared to Freestyle.
