Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.


In brief

Almost seven years since it made its debut as the first locally designed and produced "soft-roader", Ford has given the Falcon-based Territory its first significant redesign.

The new car features a brand new front-end design that incorporates elements from the company's "kinetic"-styling handbook. At the rear there's a reshaped set of tail-lights; the doors, roof and windshield are carried over from the previous model.

While precise details about specification and pricing have yet to be revealed, the new Territory will come in three trim levels: TX, TS and Titanium. Externally, the top-of-the-range Titanium features LED positioning lights and indicators in the wing mirrors, while both the TS and Titanium sport 18-inch alloy wheels.

The Territory's insides have also undergone major surgery, with the dashboard, steering wheel, centre console and instrumentation being largely lifted straight from the FG Falcon. TS and Titanium models, however, use a new 8-inch touchscreen interface to control the entertainment, Bluetooth hands-free and climate control systems — no word yet on the nav system.

Two engines will be available, a 2.7-litre V6 turbo-diesel and a petrol-drinking 4-litre straight-six. Two- and four-wheel drive versions will be available.

Outlook

Ford is slowly dripping out details about the new Territory ahead of its launch, so stay tuned for more soon.

The Good:Steering and handling

The Bad:not a lot!

I've used a Territory daily for the past 4 years and I have nothing but good things to say. I love the restyle and the diesel engine should be great.

The Good:Love the new front!

The Bad:Not an entire new model

I like the updated interior, and the new front looks good, couple that with the new diesel and its time for me to buy a new car.

Just looked at the new Kluger, the name of it is a dissaster and the shape made me throw up all over the monitor, took me an hour to clean up the darn mess...

I Like to support Aussies thats why I will be buying the Territory, too many australians love to support the Japanese. WAY too many.

The Good:Nice cars to drive

The Bad:front

The Territory is a nice car to drive. My father has a 5 year old one and it's great. It really isn't a big car at all like some people think! Put it next to a Landcruiser or a Patrol wagon and it looks tiny. It is just a higher riding Falcon basically and handles like a regular car. Sadly that front they've put on it for the new model is seriously ugly!
