THE EXPERTS SAY
In the first upgrade for the Territory, Ford replaced the four-speed six-speed auto in AWD models with a six-speeder and introduced two turbo models. Used examples of the Territory Turbo and Turbo Ghia are still highly prized, though the turbo accounted for just 5 per cent of Territory sales when new. Check for prematurely worn bushes in the front and rear suspension of AWD versions. Don’t expect great performance from fourspeed RWD versions. There were recalls to remedy issues with the brake hose, fuel pipe return and output shaft speed sensor. For a base TX RWD of 2007 ($37,990 new), pay about $7250 for a vehicle in good condition with about 150,000km. For the flagship Turbo Ghia of the same year ($65,490 new), pay about $12,750. For 2011 versions with 90,000km, pay about $10,850 for a TX RWD ($39,890 new) and about $19,000 for a Turbo Ghia ($66,820 new).
