Re: Territory Sales
Factory buillds 470 cars per day with an ability to build up to 520. Around 25% of these are Territories, thus your guess of around 130 is correct give or take a few. Ford also has the ability to increase production dramatically if need be if the wait becomes too long, which they will surely do. Territory is already blitzing the market and is going to be a huge success, WILL win Car of the Year from Wheels and is already being raved about by thousands. Just today on a test drive a BMW 3 series owner who drove an X5 for the day said he wouldn't pick the difference between the two in their value, handling/performance and comfort, apart from tha glaringly obvious $40,000+ price difference between the two. Statements like that, plus those of ML Class owners who blow their own cars out of the water when they drive a Terry... The Territory is a sensational vehicle, people will always buy Klugers, Prados, Pajeros, we can't think they're all stupid for doing so. But in the end we can only hope that people will find a bond between themselves and the Territory, given its credentials and we can be assured knowing that those who do will be very happy, have lots of fun in their vehicle and know that they are not alone. 1000 cars before sale date is not bad... but it's not as good as what it will be monthly very soon. The possibilities truly are amazing!!!
