Ford's Exhilarating New Turbo Charged Territory Breaks Cover

The award-winning Ford Territory is about to add another string to its bow - two new sports enhanced turbo charged models destined to redefine levels of SUV performance.

The new model will be offered in two all-wheel-drive specification levels - Territory Turbo, and the more luxuriously appointed Territory Ghia Turbo. Both will be powered by Ford's 245kW turbo engine.

"Territory Turbo and Territory Ghia Turbo build on the many fine attributes inherent in the original Territory and then adds additional performance," said Ford Australia President Tom Gorman.

Enhancements introduced on the recently released SY Territory range will also feature on the Territory Turbo, including a slick shifting six speed automatic transmission as standard.

"Our design engineers had a brief to create a Territory Turbo with enhanced performance but not to compromise functionality and versatility," said Mr. Gorman.

Another SUV making its debut at the show is the new Ford Escape. The Escape's exterior has been dramatically refined and features distinctive Ford DNA, giving the vehicle a very stylish urban SUV look.

Ford's popular BF Falcon and SY Territory ranges are also on display at the show, the new models offering exceptional driving enjoyment and improved fuel economy.

Ford Performance Vehicles' aggressive new-look BF range also features, with all Boss 290 V8-powered models boasting more aggressive overall styling.

The sophisticated new ZF six-speed automatic transmission is available as an option on all models - including the turbo-charged F6 Typhoon and F6 Tornado models.

Ford's smallest new car offering 'Fiesta' will showcase a distinctive new look, including new exterior styling, fresh new interiors, three vibrant new colours and an impressive list of cutting-edge technology and features.

Only months away from its official Australian launch, the Focus XR5 Turbo also appears in Melbourne for the first time.

A powerful 166kW 2.5-litre five cylinder engine, partnered with a slick-operating six-speed manual gearbox, combines with a dynamics package which offers exceptional handling, road holding ability and braking - whilst remaining refined and practical.

"The combination of new and exciting local and international new models creates a huge amount of customer appeal for visitors to the Ford stand," said Mr Gorman.
