For trunk capacity though, the Ford model offers a bit more at 420-liters with its seats up. In comparison, the Coolray can carry 330-liters also with the rear seats up. 

Moving on to on-board entertainment, the Coolray Sport gets a 10.25-inch touchscreen with the QD-Link smartphone mirroring software. The said screen is then linked to a four-piece speaker system. 

The Territory Titanium+ meanwhile, comes with a 10-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This screen gets more speakers numbering at eight. 

Geely Coolray vs Ford Territory: Engine and Performance

When it comes to power, the Coolray’s turbocharged inline-3 1.5-liter gasoline engine produces 177 horsepower and 255 Nm of torque. Power is then sent to its front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Meanwhile, the Territory’s turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-4 gasoline engine makes 141 horsepower and 225 Nm of torque at maximum. It is also a front-wheel-drive vehicle, but it uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT) instead. 

To sum it up, the Coolray makes significantly more horsepower than the Territory. And the impressive part is that it does this despite using a smaller engine.
