It has been one whole year since the Ford Territory launched in the Philippines. Back in September 2020, the American automaker brought the compact crossover to our shores. It has since sold very well and has amassed fans from all over the country.
The Territory has proved to be one of Ford's most popular models since its launch. For the first half of 2021, the Territory was Ford's 2nd best-selling model, next only to the Ranger. Nearly a third of the company's vehicle sales this year have come from the Territory.
Ford hs also been a leader in the compact crossover segment. The Territory has cornered 56% of the segment, with 3,323 units sold for the first half of the year. From August 2020 to June 2021, Ford sold 5,248 units, achieving the 5,000-vehicle milestone along the way.
The Territory has garnered a large following locally, even spurring the Ford Territory Club Philippines. The club's Facebook group currently boasts over 12,000 members. More followers are sure to join as Ford continues to sell the Territory at an impressive rate.
