Ford Territory vs Chevrolet Tracker: American branded crossovers battle it out

While Chevrolet Philippines has decided to streamline its model lineup, it has also introduced the Tracker. And so, it's pretty evident that it's looking to step into the very competitive crossover market.  

Speaking of crossovers, there are several that are available in the country right now that are offering a great balance between on-board tech and price. One of these is the Ford Territory, which is similar in a way to the Tracker in that it’s from an American brand but built in China. 

So how does the Ford Territory fare against the all-new Chevrolet Tracker? Let’s find out by comparing their top-spec variants namely the Territory Titanium+ 1.5 EcoBoost CVT and the Tracker LT Redline Edition 1.0T AT.

Which crossover has the better specs?

Clearly, the Ford Territory is the larger vehicle. It is, after all, classed as a compact crossover. The Tracker meanwhile is a subcompact crossover. 

Moving on to exterior features, both the top-spec Territory Titanium+ and Tracker LT Redline Edition comes standard with automatic LED headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, LED taillights, and front fog lamps.

Moreover, both models also have sunroofs, and roof rails. The Territory however, does use a larger set of 18-inch alloy wheels, while the top-spec Tracker model has 17-inch alloy wheels.

Ford Territory vs Chevrolet Tracker: Interior

In terms of interior amenities, both the Ford Territory Titanium+ and the Chevrolet Tracker LT Redline Edition can seat up to five. Both also come standard with automatic climate control, and leather seats.

For the driver, both also have a push-to-start button, but the Territory gets a 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat while the Tracker has a manually adjustable driver’s seat. The Chevrolet model also lacks the adaptive cruise control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a digital gauge cluster, and wireless smartphone charging that’s available on the Territory Titanium+.

To keep its occupants entertained, the Ford Territory Titanium+ comes standard with a 10-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity. It is then linked to an eight-piece speaker system. 

In comparison, the Chevrolet Tracker LT Redline Edition 1.0T AT uses a smaller eight-inch touchscreen that also comes with Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth. It also has fewer speakers numbering at six. 

Ford Territory vs Chevrolet Tracker: Engine and Performance

Under the hood of the Territory Titanium+ is a 1.5-liter inline-4 gasoline engine. At most, it can make 141 horsepower and 225 Nm of torque. The said engine is linked to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with a gear-lever manual mode, which then sends power to its front wheels.

Do you dig the Territory's rear end?

On the Chevrolet Tracker LT Redline Edition meanwhile, its engine is a gasoline turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-3. At most, this three-banger can produce up to 116 horsepower and 175 Nm of torque. Like the Ford, it is also front-wheel-drive but instead of a CVT, it uses a more conventional six-speed automatic transmission. The said gearbox also has a gear lever controlled manual mode. 

As one can see, the Ford crossover’s engine is significantly more powerful than the Chevrolet model’s three-banger. Of course, this is expected since the Tracker’s mill has one less cylinder and a smaller displacement. Regardless, one also has to consider that the Tracker LT Redline Edition has a relatively lighter curb weight of 1,260 kg. The Ford meanwhile is heavier at 1,465 kg.

Or do you prefer the look of the Tracker's rear?

In terms of suspension systems, both models use a MacPherson strut for their front ends. The rear of the Tracker however is a compound crank rear axle, whereas the rear of the Territory is a multi-link type suspension. 

While both use disc brakes for all their wheels, the Territory Titanium+ is equipped with an electronic parking brake with an auto-brake hold function. The one on the Tracker on the other hand is a more traditional hand-operated manual parking brake.

Ford Territory vs Chevrolet Tracker: Safety

When it comes to safety, both the Tracker and the Territory are up to snuff with modern car standards. Both have anti-lock braking with electronic brake-force distribution, ISOFIX child seat tethers, hill-start assist, stability control, traction control, and an engine immobilizer with car alarm. Both even have tire-pressure monitoring. 

The Territory Titanium+ however comes with significantly more driver-assist features that aren’t available on the Chevrolet crossover. These include a lane departure warning system, autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot detection, and an active parking assist system.  

Furthermore, the Territory also has access to a 360-degree camera, front and rear parking sensors, and six airbags. The Tracker LT meanwhile does have a rear parking camera, rear parking sensors, and four airbags.

Ford Territory vs Chevrolet Tracker: Conclusion

To sum it all up, the Ford Territory Titanium+ is more powerful than Tracker. And while the Chevy model already has a competent safety and entertainment kit, the top-spec Ford Territory Titanium+ is just more high-tech. This is because it comes with a host of driver-assist features which the Chevy lacks. It can even park itself by using its automatic parking assist feature.

As crossovers though, both are designed for practicality in mind. Here's the Territory's spacious trunk

Then again, one should consider that there is a significant price gap between the Territory Titanium+ and the Tracker LT Redline Edition. And as mentioned, they don’t even belong in the same vehicle size segment. As a side note, the top-spec Tracker’s price is actually closer to the lower-spec Territory Trend. As for which one is better-looking though, we’ll leave that one up to you.
