Ford South Africa has unveiled the specifications and line-up for the brand-new Territory, set to hit local Ford dealerships in the second quarter of 2024. The Territory, a roomy five-seater SUV, brings a dominant presence and the latest technology to the segment.
“The newly minted Ford Territory is tailored for young, intelligent, and connected consumers. It boasts a contemporary design and state-of-the-art technology features that offer an exhilarating and forward-thinking customer experience,” states Doreen Mashinini, the marketing general manager at Ford South Africa.
Mashinini further elaborates, “Our design team prioritised three key areas that we believed were crucial for our customers when crafting the new Territory. It needed to command a presence on the road, offer a sense of spaciousness within, and incorporate smart technology seamlessly into the design.”
She adds, “This is a significant new volume seller for Ford that nestles between the Everest and Puma as we broaden our footprint in the rapidly expanding SUV segment.”
Territory delivers on its promise, boasting a commanding presence, superior craftsmanship, and a spacious, flexible interior that meets the expectations of tech-savvy customers.
