    don't forget america doesn't get the falcon because they chose to make a mazda based sedan instead you guys really lost out on that decision its a shame

    Concept of the Territory looks similar to Ford Freestyle to me. Engine on Freestyle is not as powerful however.

    Looks like it's based off the freestyle.

    Cursory glance shows it isn't, as Freestyle is Volvo FWD based isn't it?

    Territory features a longditudinal mounted I6 with rear-drive or rear-drive biased AWD. It's development was apparently underway before Freestyle. Now has 190kW, 6speed ZF auto on AWD variants, with turbo-6 petrol & twin-turbo Peugeot/Ford V6 diesel models impending

    Rumour has it once Ford Oz pitched the idea to Detroit (and subsequently asked for the $AUD500m to develop it), Detroit changed the styling of the Freestyle to coincide with the Territory

    It has become reality!
