Welcome to Inquirer Mobility


As its name suggests, Ford’s new Territory seeks to break new ground when it comes to design, performance and features. Here are the highlights of the new compact SUV:

1. EcoBoost engine

Ford designed its range of turbocharged petrol engines to deliver the best of both worlds: high performance and fuel efficiency. The modest 1.5-liter displacement helps to improve mileage, while the engine is still ready to deliver sufficient output for spirited acceleration. The Territory’s engine delivers 143 and 225Nm, the latter starting at a commendably low 1500rpm

2. Safety and comfort, standard

The Territory certainly doesn’t skimp of safety and comfort features, even with the base Trend variant. LED exterior lighting with auto on/off headlamps, front and rear foglamps, leather seats and steering wheel, auto-dimming rear view mirror. The panoramic moonroof is likewise standard on both variants of Territory

3. Audio system with 10-inch touchscreen

The Ford Territory has a 10-inch touchscreen audio system with adjustable views. The system has built-in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy connectivity. The Trend comes with 6 speakers, and the Titanium+ upgrades it to 8

4. Active safety features

Territory is equipped with electronic stability control, ABS and EBD brakes, traction control, cruise control and hill-launch assist. Six airbags are standard. The Titanium+ adds autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning, and lane departure warning. Tire-pressure monitoring system is standard as well

5. Driver assist features

The Territory has rear parking sensors and rear-view camera as standard, with the Titanium+ adding front parking sensors and a 360-degree view monitor. It also features parallel and perpendicular parking assist, where the vehicle is able to steer itself into a suitable parking space.

6. Longer service intervals

The Territory needs regular maintenance only once a year, especially important during this time of pandemic. As part of the launch package, early buyers (until September 15, 2020) will get a 3-year service plan included at no extra cost.
