Used Car Safety Report

The Ford Territory has been awarded a 4 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

Driver Protection Rating

5 Star Driver Protection Excellent
4 Star Driver Protection Good
3 Star Driver Protection Marginal
2 Star Driver Protection Poor
1 Star Driver Protection Very Poor

The Ford Territory also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

These results apply to all-wheel-drive Ford Territories manufactured from January 2006. Similar results could be expected for the rear-wheel-drive version of the Territory.

The Territory scored 12.57 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a moderate risk of serious chest injury for the driver and passenger. Each had a slight risk of lower leg injury.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. A pole test was conducted on the TS variant (fitted with curtain airbags) - see separate result.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags and ABS/EBD brakes are standard on all variants. Head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment on the TS and Ghia variants and optional on the TX variant. Electronic stability control is standard on all-wheel-drive variants and the Ghia RWD. It is an option for the others. An advanced seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver's seat.

The front seatbelt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seatbelts. Pretensioners are fitted to the seatbelts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. These seatbelts also have load limiters to reduce chest injury. A three point belt is fitted to the centre rear seat and provides better protection than a two point belt. Both driver and front passenger airbags are dual stage to give better protection in different crashes.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Head/Neck 4 pts

Lower Legs 3.422 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 57mm and upwards 12mm. By design, the brake pedal hinge separated during the crash, allowing the brake pedal to swing freely. This reduces the risk of lower leg injury. The feet were protected from footwell deformation by a laminated insert under the carpet. The steering wheel hub moved forwards 61mm, upwards 23mm and sideways 7mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 8mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash.

After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort. The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. There were no deductions for knee hazards. The passenger's head was also cushioned by an airbag.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Territory. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the optional pole test. The tested vehicle just missed out on the 32.5 points needed for a 5 star rating. The TX variant without curtains would have scored 29.57 points - also a good 4 star result.
