2015 FORD EDGE
Like the large Falcon sedan, production of the Territory is scheduled to end in 2016, leaving a gap in the carmaker's local SUV line-up.
For now, Ford remains tight-lipped on its plans for replacing either of its home-grown products, although it appears likely the Edge will eventually sit between the small Kuga and the larger Everest 4WD.
In America, the new Edge will likely debut in mid to late 2014 - based on the concept shown here - launching as a long-overdue replacement for the current model, which first appeared in 2006. (A facelifted model appeared in 2011.)
The new model is understood to share its platform with Ford's new Mondeo midsized family sedan, hatch and wagon, due to hit Australia in 2014.
It could be sometime before Ford confirms plans for the Edge in Australia, and it remains to be seen if the SUV will keep its US-market name or lean on the success of the Territory badge.
If the Territory badge does live on, it will be alone in doing so: Ford has already confirmed the Falcon name will be retired when production ends.
Ford has yet to offer any details on powertrains and measurements for the new Edge, although we can likely expect a range of EcoBoost engines to provide motivation.
