Ford Territory owner replaces interior wood accents with alloy 

Updated Dec 31, 2021 | Same topic: Tuning & Mods

He went for that “modern alloy look.” 

For some people, wood trims on car interior pieces are a faux pas. We have to emphasize though that it’s for “some people” since a good number of you reading this might still like the idea of having the simulated wood grain and its associated brown color inside your cars. It’s also quite classy since it's a common design element in luxury cars. And when it comes to the 2021 Ford Territory, many will say that it doesn’t actually look out of place at all.

As far as this guy is concerned, though, the wood interior accents on his particular Territory have got to go. As such, he replaced the Ford crossover’s interior door trims and the wood dashboard trims with what he calls a “modern alloy look.” Moreover, he went further and gave the bottom door panel protector a faux carbon fiber finish.  

Now some of you who like to keep your cars stock or are fans of the Territory’s interior design might be frothing from the mouth by now. But in fairness, the guy’s “neat” installation may warrant a slow clap from us. And yes, he essentially made the Territory’s interior look a bit more similar to many other crossovers in the market today. But hey, it’s his car, and that’s just our opinion.

Speaking of the Territory’s interior, one can say that it is already one of the more contemporary-looking cabins among locally available crossovers right now. 

Seamlessly integrated into the dashboard is a 10-inch touchscreen display with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and below that are the fancy-looking controls for the automatic climate control system. The top-spec Territory Titanium+ also features adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree view camera, a digital gauge cluster, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an eight-piece speaker system, among others.
