With the release of the FG Falcon and European Mondeo models, Ford Australia has emerged with a definite design language that looks certain to carry on into the upcoming Territory.
Based on cues from Ford Europe's Kuga and its "kinetic" design philosophy, Ford will meld sportiness with rugged capability, but will not forsake individual character. With talk of possible export deals re-emerging, Ford is loath to turn its back on the American market. Indeed, Wheels magazine's Peter Robinson suggests Ford are looking at the Explorer America concept from the 2008 Detroit show as a basis for the car.
In either case, expect the Territory to look somewhat similar to the newly released FG Falcon and sporting similar engines with perhaps the advent of the across-the-range diesel by the time the car is released.
