Everything You Need To Know About The Next-Generation Ford Territory (w/ Specs)

Just three years after the launch of the Territory nameplate, Ford has brought in the next-generation Territory at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) after opening a reservation portal last March.

Still classified as a “small SUV” even if its length now stretches to a mid-sized SUV aping 4,630 mm (wheelbase is equally huge at 2,726 mm), the 2023 Territory wears Ford’s Made for the Chinese market “Progressive Energy in Strength” design. This means it has three fundamentals integrated into its lines: commanding, responsive, and smart.

The next-generation Territory comes with a honeycomb grille, compound-style LED headlights which offers a beam throw reaching as far as 270 meters for the high beam (105 meters for the low beam) and rear LED taillights. The range-topping Titanium X is distinguishable by its larger (19-inch) wheels and panoramic moonroof.

Under the hood, Ford’s done away with the previous-generation Territory’s platform and powertrain. The 1.5-liter direct injected and turbocharged EcoBoost 4-cylinder offers 160 horsepower and 248 Nm of torque. Likewise, the CVT is gone and replaced by a 7-speed wet-type dual clutch gearbox that’s in “no way, shape, or form related to PowerShift.” The dual clutch automatic is designed and manufactured by Magna and has four selectable driving modes: Normal, Eco, Sport, and Mountain.

Inside, the “coast-to-coast” dashboard design evokes a feeling of spaciousness. A larger trunk, 448 liters in capacity, can carry two full-sized suitcases or a variety of sporting equipment. The instrument cluster and infotainment system are visually connected with the Titanium receiving a 7-inch digital cluster, while the Titanium X getting a full-digital 12-inch system. In both cases, there’s a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen (not SYNC 4 and no FordPass) at the center. The Titanium nets you a six-speaker system, while the Titanium X adds two more for a total of eight.

Standard on the 2023 Territory are features such as a 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat, dual zone climate control with rear vents, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and wireless Apple CarPlay with wireless charging. Apart from the panoramic moonroof, the Titanium X also receives full leather seats with ventilation (versus partial leather), a hands-free power tailgate, a PM2.5 air filtration system, and puddle lamps.

Like the previous-generation Territory, the all-new model comes with a bevy of driver assist systems ranging from simple to advanced. Standard are a 360-degree camera, active park assist, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a door opening collision warning system. Meanwhile, the Titanium X adds adaptive cruise control with stop/go function, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, and lane departure warning with lane keep assist.

The all-new Territory comes in six colors, the availability of which depends on the variant: Ruby Red (Titanium only), Panther Black, Crystal Pearl White (Titanium X only), Blue Metallic, Lustrous Gray, and Star White (Titanium only). The Territory Titanium is priced at P 1,335,000, while the Territory Titanium X is priced at P 1,599,000. It comes with a 5-year / 150,000-kilometer warranty. The 2023 Territory will still be sourced from China.

In so far as specs and product go, the next-generation Territory is a huge jump from its predecessor. And while the previous Territory didn’t set a high enough bar, it still managed to sell over 20,000 examples. This makes us keen to try out the all-new Territory soon (Ford Philippines did promise us a test drive). Now, other journos took the opportunity to take the all-new SUV for a quick drive around-the-block. But call us skeptical, but let’s admit that it isn’t enough even for a proper first impressions. So, while we wait for long term drives, take those “reviews” with a grain of salt.

If you want to see the next-generation Territory for yourself, head over to the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) from April 13 to 16 at the World Trade Center, or check out the full specs below.

  1. Wow bang for the buck, miles and miles bettet than kuchi idolize gwm habal habal😁😁😁 it will surely break into top 10 most sold cars dis 2023 if they can supply enough the market. Kudos ford ph 👏👏👏

  2. Generously featured with the right price.

    1. The Territory Titanium is already a nice choice especially for those who don't want the sunroof.

    2. Except for the steering wheel of the Titanium which is not leather. Sad. But overall it's still a nice car.

  3. Definitely the FORD TERRITORY Titanium is gonna be the best selling Compact CrossOver in the market. The 1.3M price is just enough to outsmart the Aggressive Chinese brands. As in Motorshow you can see how people lining up to check and test-drove the Territory.
