Territory ST was a unique vehicle for its era and is fondly remembered by Ford fans.

Ford is a bakkie and SUV business in South Africa, but its portfolio has a telling product gap. No mid-sized SUV with a blue oval on its grille is available at any local Ford dealer.
After the Kuga was discontinued, Ford dealers wistfully observed the sales success of the Rav4 and the Korean twins, the Tucson and Sportage, without any product to offer customers.
So, what’s the solution? It could be the Territory. A model last seen at South African Ford dealers in the mid- to late 2000s, the Territory will reappear at Ford dealers in the second half of 2024. But it has become a very different vehicle from what local Ford fans will remember.
