Ford Australia has introduced its redesigned Territory SUV, which has been given an extensive visual update both inside and out.

There’s no mention of any mechanical changes to the Australian-designed-and-developed vehicle, which is also exported to South Africa and Thailand; looks like the 4.0 litre Barra inline-six pot – in various output configuration/tunes ranging from 244 hp up to 362 hp – continues on pretty much unchanged.

So it’s all to sight and touch, the changes, with kinetic design cues leading the way for the exterior. At the front, the vehicle feeatures an all-new tri-plane front-end architecture, and the new trapezoid-shaped main grille is one of the new Territory’s most noticeable updates.

Besides a redesigned front bumper and bonnet, slim-line projector headlamps are new, as are LED position lamps on the higher end variant. There SUV also gets a number of new 17- and 18-inch wheel designs to wear.

Moving rearwards, a new C-pillar design smooths the transition from front to rear. Other changes include new horizontal tail lamps and a new rear lift-gate applique, as well as a redesigned bumper and new lower-level valance panel.

Inside, the cabin gets new materials and colours, and among the items on the update list are a new instrument panel featuring an 8-inch touchscreen as well as a host of new functional storage solutions.
