Along with Ford Pro, The Blue Oval has added a host of new products to its Brazilian lineup in recent months, including the compact Ford Maverick Hybrid, the full-size Ford F-150, and the newly redesigned Ford Ranger, to name just a few. Meanwhile, we’ve seen the also-new Ford Territory crossover – which is a rebadged version of the Chinese Equator Sport – launch in a number of global markets including Vietnam, Argentina, the Middle East, Mexico, and Peru. Now, we can add yet another destination to that list, as the Ford Territory is now set to launch in Brazil later this year, too.
Ford made this announcement while showing off the Territory in Brazil for the first at at the Interlagos Festival – Cars Edition at the José Carlos Pace racetrack in São Paulo. The automaker didn’t provide any more details about the crossover, but it’s likely identical to the one already on sale in a number of markets around the world.
On the outside, the Territory features distinctive LED lighting, a hexagonal chrome grille, and 19-inch painted aluminum wheels, as well as a choice of seven different colors – Metallic White, Bright Black, Star Sand, Mahogany Coffee, Ruby Red, Pearl White, and Deep Blue. Inside the cabin, the crossover is equipped with a 12-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality, six- or 10-way power seats, an optional panoramic roof, an available hands-free tailgate, a wireless phone charger, and a bevy of driver-assist features.
Depending on the market, the Territory is offered in a number of different trim levels, but is powered by the turbocharged Ford 1.8L EcoBoost engine, which generates 187 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. That powerplant is mated exclusively to a seven-speed automatic transmission, which drives the front wheels.
