Final makeover for Australian produced SUV

2015 Ford Territory receives third and final facelift, despite near end of model life. Like the Falcon, Ford Australia has decided to give the SUV its final makeover for the last version of the model that will be locally manufactured.

The facelift gives the Territory modernized styling cues quite similar to Ford's latest generation of passenger cars and crossovers and some elements from the 2015 Ford Everest Concept as well.

The SUV is also sold in New Zealand, South Africa and Thailand. The Territory along with the Falcon was given the indefinite axe after the carmaker’s decision to cease its manufacturing operations in Australia by 2016.

About the same time last year, Ford unveiled the next-generation Everest SUV concept in Australia which is quite similar in size and function to the Territory.

However, our sources have pointed to the 2015 Edge along with 2015 Everest as two possible replacements.
