Ford Philippines has just announced that their sales figures for October were very promising. With the Ranger pickup and Everest leading the top of the sales charts for Ford, the Blue Oval company has hit 1,625 retail sales for the month of October, 2018.
Broken down, the Ranger pickup reached 725 units sold for the said month, pushing its total sales for the year up by 12% so far, hitting 9,216 vehicles. The new Ranger lineup of trims and variants that were launched in September certainly helped reach more customers and offer more options for would be buyers, with a range of 2.0L bi-turbo and single turbo choices. Those looking for a higher performance Ranger can check out the Ranger Raptor which was also launched alongside the refreshed Ranger, offering unmatched off-road capability.
Our Big Three nameplates – Ranger, Everest, and EcoSport – continue to drive our overall sales. We’re expecting to finish the year strong, supported by a number of experiential test drive events planned around the country that allow prospective customers to personally experience our full Ford lineup.
Ford PH’s midsize SUV, the Everest, reached 560 sales for October, contributing to the year-to-date total sales of 4,960 vehicles. The Everest is a solid performer in its class, featuring a comprehensive set of tech and on and off-road prowess. The recently refreshed EcoSport subcompact crossover, which was launched in August this year, also contributed to sales for October, hitting 274 units. A completely new transmission and two engine choices, the award-winning 1.0L EcoBoost and the standard 1.5L gasoline, and new interior refinements and exterior design, help keep the EcoSport on the radar for Filipino buyers. The new Mustang also performed well, selling 30 units in October, bringing the numbers up 9% to 369 sold Mustangs for the year so far.
