The Australian-based Territory is powered by a 4.0-litre 6-cylinder engine boasting a maximum power output of 182 kW at 5 000 r/min and 380 Nm of maximum torque at a very low 3 250 r/min.

It is available in both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive and it features Ford's new Virtual Pivot Control Link front suspension.

Ford claims that this results in "car-like levels of ride and handling". The car also has a specially tailored version of the Control Blade independent rear suspension.

The Virtual Pivot Control Link front suspension in Territory consists of a short and long arm with double lower balljoint, working in tandem with a forward-mounted steering rack.

Employing a forward-mounted steering rack allowed for an optimal positioning of the half shafts driving the front wheels, and for dynamics engineers to achieve outstanding compliance characteristics.
