All-New Ford Territory Midsize SUV Marks Blue Oval’s China Offensive

Ford has officially introduced the all-new Territory in China after a preview back in August.

The vehicle has been developed by Ford and its local joint venture partner Jiangling Motors Corporation. Ford hopes that the all-new Territory will help it cash in on China’s fastest-growing automotive segment.

The automaker hasn’t provided many details about the model, but says it is based on the Yusheng S330 SUV. It will compete with midsize SUVs produced by the likes of Geely and Great Wall Motor.

While it didn’t release specifications, Ford has provided ample details about the Territory’s interior. For starters, there is a 10-inch high-definition LCD touchscreen that acts as the centerpiece of the dashboard and controls all infotainment functions. A high-definition LCD display also sits in place of a traditional gauge cluster and will display all key driving details. Information from the central display can also be mirrored to the instrument panel screen.

Elsewhere, the Territory adopts FordPass Connect meaning it can be turned into a mobile 4G LTE WiFi hotspot. The SUV also comes complete with safety systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Assist, Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Information System, Lane Departure Warning, Active Park Assist System, a 360-degree camera, and Hill Start Assist.

Ford claims that the new Territory was tested for more than 4.4 million kilometers (2.73 million miles) around the world, including in Australia and some of the most extreme environments across China.

“Our onslaught of new vehicles has begun,” president of Ford Asia Pacific and Ford China chairman and chief executive Peter Fleet said.

“We are taking the best of how we’ve brought Territory to market – deeply listening to customers in China and delivering what they want in style, comfort, safety and new in-vehicle infotainment options – and applying it across the business. Territory is just the beginning of more great things to come.”

  • Bash

    For a sec I though its a new Sorento!
    I love it, I love the interior and that dash.

  • charlotteharry57

    Side view is dreadful and the dash is so ergonomically incorrect, it’s laughable. Starting with the horribly-low placed infotainment screen.

    • Matt

      That’s where the infotainment system is in most cars?

  • ErnieB

    This must must be where ford is headed with their new SUVs .. I like it a lot.. they upped the quality.. look GM..

  • Stephen G

    Does everybody have to do that ridiculous floating roof? It looks like an after thought on an otherwise pleasant design.

  • Dr Bjorn K. Von Strangefingger

    FORD is desperately trying to be Subaru. Oh, and is that really a true SUV… or more of a tallish station wagon?

    • Karl

      Where have you been? This is where the market is heading. Trying to be Subaru? Laughable at best..

      • Dr Bjorn K. Von Strangefingger

        Sorry, I’ve been over at your mom’s joint.

        • Karl

          Funny you should say that but she was quite disappointed by your underperformance. She said it was a case of “too little too quick”

          • Dr Bjorn K. Von Strangefingger
