This 5 star rating applies to all Ford Territories built from January 2010, when a front passenger seat belt reminder was introduced. ANCAP tested the all-wheel-drive Territory and was provided with evidence that the rear-wheel-drive variants give comparable occupant protection.
Dual front airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. A reversing camera is available on some variants. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.
