Ford just released this teaser for an all-new mid size SUV for the Australian Market.... Recently Ford also introduced the next generation 2012 Ranger in Australia, so this could be the next Everest hopefully arriving to our shores very soon..... And it is rumored to have a Land Rover developed 2.7L TDCi V6 producing 190 horse power
Ford Australia has released the first official image of the new-look 2011 Ford Territory.
The sketch reveals the new vehicle will adopt Ford’s global kinetic design language, emphasised by the large lower air intake, thin horizontal grille and sharp, sweeping headlights already seen on the smaller European-designed Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo models.
Ford says the styling of the 2011 Territory provides a glimpse into the future of Ford’s global SUV design.
Completely redesigned inside and out, the Territory will feature a range of new technical features, headlined by the long-awaited introduction of a diesel engine.
The engine will be a 2.7-litre turbo-diesel V6 from the Land Rover Discovery sourced from Europe.
Ford Australia is yet to reveal performance data of the Territory diesel, but fitted to the $68,490 Discovery 4 TDV6 S it produces 140kW of power and 445Nm of torque.
Hauling the Land Rover’s considerable 2486kg frame (around 400kg more than the current-model Ford), it achieves combined cycle fuel consumption of 10.2 litres/100km and accelerates from 0-100km/h in 12.7 seconds.
Ford has confirmed the current I6 engine will carry over into the new model.
Ford Australia President and CEO, Bob Graziano, said he believed the new Territory – which will be the vehicle’s first major upgrade since the launch of the SX in 2004 – would again set the benchmark in the medium SUV market.
“This is an exceptional SUV. It wears an exciting new look and will boast an extensive list of technical highlights,” Mr Graziano said.
“The Ford Australia team is taking the Territory to an all-new level of performance, refinement and quality, and customers will definitely experience these advancements when they drive it.”
Launch, specification and pricing details of the 2011 Ford Territory will be revealed in the coming months.

The Falcon's platform was not design to accomodate LHD.
Assuming that the upcoming Territory's platform is a carryover from the current Territory (just like the previous Falcon and the current Falcon), it might still be RHD only.

looking at the rendering, it could be applied to the neverending facelift of the Escape :D

After the Fiesta and Focus, the next Ford vehicle to be turned into a "One Ford" global model is their compact SUV.
The Kuga and Escape will be replaced by one global model.
A concept version of the new compact SUV will be shown at the 2011 North American International Auto Show.
