Territory too familiar?

So, the shape has been around for a while now, must be time for an update? Y'know, change the lights, grille, colours, wheels...

Oops, that's right, it's not actually on sale for another week.

Hmm, possible downside to Ford's "drip-feed" marketing approach?

Don't think the BA suffered from this marketing although it really pissed off some in the press media especially ( great I say) in fact I think it helped sales as we all new far more about the cars by the time they were ready for delivery and it's a good way of keeping those undecided from jumping into an oppostion brand before they get a serious look.

Re: Territory too familiar?

I don't think it's a problem. Us car nuts are always reading the car guides, surfing the web for more info etc. etc. Too much info. is still not enough for some around here.

Ask the average Joe if they know about the Territory and they might have a vague awareness. Media saturation is absolutely necessary, just check the "Drive" section of the age or "Carsales" and you'll see that any press-release stays at the top of the pile for 2-3days at most and then gets sucked into the archive vortex.

What seems like overhype to us barely shows on the radar of the general public.

Re: Territory too familiar?

OK so whens Territory 2 due? Shoudl I hold off?
IS it too soon for run out deals?

BTW this model is called SX I believe.
I better check again next time I pass a dealer. The ID plate is half way down the A pillar inside the front door

I think they look great in lighter colours. Lightening Strike and Offshore and really set it off. In fact Offshore and Zest seem tour suit the Terrier more then Falcon.
