Ford ships 100 Territorys to Thailand

Australian car buyers have gained a lot over the years from the Australia-Thailand free trade agreement, with tens-of-thousands of Hondas, Fords, Toyotas, Holdens, Mazdas and others arriving in Australia tariff free. Australian car manufacturers haven’t fared so well getting their wares into the Kingdom, though.

After a successful showing at the Bangkok Motor Show earlier this year, Ford is sending its first shipment of Territory Titanium TDCi models off to Thailand. No word yet on how much the top-of-the-range Territory will set Thais back.

According to Ford, some changes have been made to facilitate its sale in Thailand, namely changing the FM radio move in 50kHz increments and allowing the rear-seat DVD player to read Asia region DVDs.
