The first full presentation of the new Ford Territory cross was held last week in China: as then stated in the company SUV designed specifically for China, and adjust its production.

On the eve of the SUV showed local journalists, and the public premiere of new items will be held November 6 at the auto show in Sao Paulo.

If the decision to withdraw Territory on the Brazilian market will be made, then sales may start in late 2019 – early 2020. At the first stage cars will be ship from China, however, not so long ago in neighboring Argentina has completed the release of the Ford Focus – the released power may pay under Territory. By the way, if the SUV will appear in Brazil, it will probably sell more on the Argentine market, as well as in other countries of South America.

Recall that in the Ford lineup already was a model named Territory is the SUV with the same name was released in Australia, 2004-2016 years, the car was built on the platform of the Ford Falcon sedan. New Territory (length – 4580 mm wheelbase 2716 mm) developed jointly with China’s Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC, Ford in China have a joint venture with this company, it will also produce the new product) – fresh Ford is a turned cross JMC Yusheng S330. Outwardly from the “donor” cross, the American brand is characterized grille, optics and bumpers. The interior is also designed differently, but the General architecture of the cabin is preserved.

Motor Chinese Territory inherited from JMC Yusheng S330, however, it was renamed – instead of index GTDi petrol “turboservice” 1.5 Ford now carries the name EcoBoost. The engine power was cut from 163 to 145 HP Drive only the front. Later in China option appears with a 48-volt starter-generator and a full hybrid. About motor scheme, the Brazilian SUV in the company of silence.

In the equipment list of the Ford Territory include: multimedia system with a large touch screen and voice control, a virtual “tidy”, panoramic roof, security systems Co-Pilot360 (the system of automatic emergency braking, monitoring blind areas and automatic headlight switch, the assistant to movement in the strip, adaptive cruise control).

To Chinese dealers the novelty will arrive next year, price not yet announced, but we know that cross will be much cheaper than the Ford Kuga. Latest SUV in China will cost at least 169 800 yuan ($24 500).

Note, the donor JMC Yusheng S330 in the domestic market fell in the past year, the implementation of 17 998 cars, and it remains to China. Meanwhile, the official website of JMC, the cross is no longer – apparently, it was removed from sale.

In China, one of the main competitors in Territory considered a Hyundai ix35 in Brazil (unless, of course, the decision about the start of sales will be made) new Ford tries to lure buyers of the Jeep Compass, the leader of SUV segment in the local market (in the past year Brazil implemented 49 187 these “jeeps”). That is the price Brazilian Ford Territory will be comparable to the model of the Jeep (from 112 000 to R 30 or $ 300 is a pretty attractive price for Brazil).
