Ford Australia has issued the following press releases:

Ford's Exhilarating New Turbo Charged Territory Breaks Cover
he award-winning Ford Territory is about to add another string to its bow - two new sports enhanced turbo charged models destined to redefine levels of SUV performance.

The new model will be offered in two all-wheel-drive specification levels – Territory Turbo, and the more luxuriously appointed Territory Ghia Turbo. Both will be powered by Ford's 245kW turbo engine.

"Territory Turbo and Territory Ghia Turbo build on the many fine attributes inherent in the original Territory and then adds additional performance," said Ford Australia President Tom Gorman.

Enhancements introduced on the recently released SY Territory range will also feature on the Territory Turbo, including a slick shifting six speed automatic transmission as standard.

"Our design engineers had a brief to create a Territory Turbo with enhanced performance but not to compromise functionality and versatility," said Mr. Gorman.

Ford Release A Motor Show Special – The Territory SR
Territory is Australia's most popular SUV, and we believe Territory SR offers even more excitement and greater value for money over and above what is already a very highly desirable award winning vehicle," said Ford Australia President, Tom Gorman.

"The special edition model provides additional sporty exterior styling cues and increased functionality."

Ford Territory SR offers over $3,800 of added specification for a $1000 premium above the recommended retail price of a standard Territory TX.

Ford Reveals A Stylish New Way To Escape
The Melbourne International Motor Show marks the first time this new vehicle is being shown before going on sale throughout Asia Pacific later this year," said Ford Australia President Tom Gorman.

"We've taken an already great product and added a new look we're confident will appeal to a much wider audience.

"The new Escape exterior has been dramatically refined, giving the vehicle a very stylish urban SUV look.

"It has a distinctive Ford DNA, and now more closely resembles its best selling bigger brother, the multi-award winning Ford Territory," said Mr Gorman.

Externally, the new Escape boasts a new grille, comprising three horizontal bars with a bright finish, matching seamlessly with the new hood complete with bright front edge garnish and new feature lines.

A freshly styled front bumper, incorporating an updated skid plate on the XLT Sport and Limited models, houses recessed circular fog lamps which match the stylish new four chamber chrome-ringed headlamps, encased in a smoked housing.

On the range-topping Limited, the turn indicators are now housed in the side vision mirrors, providing improved visibility and adding a distinctive, luxury feel.

At the rear, a new lift gate garnish is complemented by a new rear bumper – incorporating a skid plate on the XLT Sport and Limited models – housing rear fog lamps and a new rear combination LED lamp.

Three new wheel designs complete the exterior look, with a new seven spoke 16-inch alloy design for the XLT V6 Sports, a new three spoke 16-inch alloy wheel for the four-cylinder XLT and a new six-spoke 16-inch steel wheel for the entry level four-cylinder XLS.

Rear disc brakes will be standard across the new Escape range.
