The accepted Ford Falcon-based Territory SUV accomplished assembly in October 2016, acceptation that if you bought one of the aftermost ones, the assurance aeon is about up and it is about the time a lot of new car buyers alpha cerebration about a replacement.
The Ranger-based Everest is impressively adequate on the alley and appropriately able off it.
But Ford never anon replaced the Territory, instead overextension the amount beyond two altered models – the seven bench Ranger ute-based Everest and the bristles bench Mondeo-based Endura (known as the Egde in its home bazaar of the USA). The top-spec Titanium versions of both are $10,000 apart, but which one is a bigger Territory another for the committed Ford buyer?

On-paper specs would advance the car-based Endura should be the best accessible alternative, but the actuality it is based on the FWD Mondeo belvedere and is alone a five-seater could calmly tip the antithesis aback appear the RWD ute-based seven bench Everest, depending on your needs and preferences.
The Endura is the added car-like of the two, but Everest has added of the Territory’s RWD feel.
In its aftermost year of activity (production chock-full in October 2016, although sales agitated on into 2017) the top-spec Territory Titanium AWD agent amount $69,990, or the aforementioned as the agnate Endura Titanium AWD agent costs now, while the Everest Titanium stretches that to $79,990.
Both the Everest and Endura are powered by 2.0-litre turbo agent engines, with the Everest’s 157kW/500Nm bi-turbo assemblage topping the Endura’s 140kW/400Nm audible twin-scroll agent in agreement of both ability and torque, although the Everest does counterbalance a not accessible 460kg added than the abate car – 2,017kg against 2,477kg.
By way of comparison, the Territory’s 140kW/440Nm 2.7-litre turbo agent had to booty about 2,045kg, suggesting acerb that it and the Endura should be rather agnate in agreement of on-road performance, while the Everest should lag hardly behind.
The Everest’s autogenous is ample and comfortable, but not as acceptable as the Endura’s.
But it is absolutely the Everest that feels the livelier – and added Territory-like – of the two, with its bigger torque advancing in lower and a advantageous block of it afraid about best than the Endura’s engine can manage, with the American alms activity hardly asthmatic by allegory already it gets up in the revs.
This is amplified by the actuality that the Everest’s thoroughly accomplished 2.0-litre bi-turbo agent is absorbed up to an appropriately excellent 10-speed automated transmission, while the Endura’s 8-speed assemblage can be a bit dithery and indecisive, while it’s rotary punch selector is an acid pain.
Neither absolutely emulates the Territory’s aboveboard acceptable RWD car-like ride and handling, with both accepting their advantages and disadvantages over the now-departed Aussie.
Huge burden amplitude and seven seats are an advantage of the Everest’s size.
The Everest boasts accomplished ride quality, with that accepted “for article based on a ute” caveat, while the Endura more carefully matches the Territory, acknowledgment to its analogously car-based origins. Both, however, are impressively adequate and refined, although the Everest does accept a audible truck-like bend to it that you would apprehend from a ladder anatomy vehicle. Whether or not this is a acceptable or bad affair depends on your tastes.
In agreement of handling, the Endura’s FWD origins appearance through – again, acceptable or bad, depending on preferences – but its on-road amenities are affable and predictable, with an active bend that the Everest lacks acknowledgment to its arduous bulk. It is additionally acutely absorbing – and absolutely absolutely fun – on gravel, with a accurately counterbalanced anatomy and acknowledging steering.
The Everest does feel bigger, bulkier and added truck-like than either the Endura or Territory, but it is calmly the best administration affair in the ample ute-based SUV arena, with a hasty accurateness and activity to its ample frame.
If you’re attractive for seven seats, again don’t attending in the Endura. It is impressively ample central though.
Central amplitude is appreciably agnate – up to a point. Being FWD, decidedly advanced and not accepting to try and clasp seven seats in agency the Endura absolutely acme the Everest in every autogenous ambit bar headroom, although alike again it is bordering (61mm in the advanced and 16mm in the second row) and due to the Endura’s sunroof.
Up back, the Everest acme the Endura though, with a cavernous 1,050 litres of amplitude abaft the additional row of seats (and a still absorbing 450 litres abaft the third row), while the Endura can alone administer 800 litres. Fold all the seats bottomward and the Everest grows to 2,010 litres, while the Endura stretches to 1,688 litres.
While both the Endura and Everest accept an unbraked towing accommodation of the accepted 750kg, the Everest calmly crushes the Endura back it comes to carriage a braked trailer, administration 3,100kg compared to the Endura’s rating of 2,000kg. The agent AWD Territory could handle 2,700kg braked.
The Endura Titanium costs absolutely the aforementioned as the agent Territroy Titanium did. Everest is $10K more.
Perhaps the best absorbing affair about this exercise is absolutely how abutting both the Endura and Everest are to the Territory in the majority of ways, yet both feel like absolutely altered vehicles, to anniversary added and the Territory.
So which should replace your Territory? It depends what you charge – big towing capacity, seven seats, huge burden space, a spectacularly acceptable agent and transmission, and absolute off-road accreditation while actual acutely absorbing on the alley are the Everest’s better affairs points, while the Endura scores well with its accomplished ride comfort, college autogenous quality, absorbing commuter space and aesthetic on-road manners.
Both are absorbing cartage in their own abstracted ways, but if you particularly abundance the Territory’s “taller big RWD car” feel and attitude, again the abridgement of a absolute replacement will still grate.
