Ford knows that in some markets it is necessary to have products in access to various segments. That is why to Mexico bring the new Ford Territory, an SUV product of its collaborations with automakers in China and that represents the new entry point to the brand with a compact SUV.
Understanding its origin
The Ford Territory was developed alongside JMC, a Chinese brand with whom they work to produce the models that are sold directly in that country. The interesting thing about the Territory is that it comes with a new generation that hasn’t been introduced for long and in which Ford really collaborated to meet various brand standards for markets outside the Asian country. So it is not completely a foreign model to them with Ford emblems.
Clear design that is consistent with the latest brand
On the outside, it has a design very similar to that of other international Fords, although it also has a lot of influence from recent models exclusive to China, such as Mondeo or Evos. On the outside there are several color contrasts on the grille, panoramic roof, wheels up to 19″, LED headlights and skulls. In terms of dimensions, it is placed in the compact SUV segment, but in the spectrum of the largest in its category. , thinking of rivaling Honda CR-V, VW Tiguan, Toyota RAV4, among others.
Equipment for comfort and family
The interior does carry an influence closer to the brand’s Chinese models, with an instrument panel and infotainment screen mounted in the same continuous frame in a horizontal position, instead of the brand’s latest vertical screens. In this case you can have 12″ or 7″ screens, both compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. We can also expect things like multi-zone automatic air conditioning, power-adjustable seats, the Ford Pass Connect system that allows us to know vehicle information through our cell phone, among many other things.
Good level of security equipment
In safety, the essentials are offered as standard equipment for all versions: ABS brakes, electronic stability control, and slope ascent assistant. As you advance through the ranks, things like the rear view camera and a suite of safety aids that include the autonomous emergency brakelane keeping, blind spot monitor and adaptive cruise control.
