Ford Philippines continues to drive smoothly this 2016 as they concluded February with yet another strong sales performance. At 52% increase year-over-year to 2,671 units, it’s the brand’s 2nd best-ever sales month with the Everest, EcoSport, Explorer, and Ranger leading their way.
Standing atop the chart is the Ford Everest with a total of 1,234 units successfully sold. With its muscular look, off-road capabilities, and smart features, it’s not surprising why this midsize SUV appealed to many consumers.
It can seat up to 7 people with extra space for luggage. It can also handle varied driving condition with its body-on-frame chassis and 225 mm ground clearance. As the one of the smartest in its class, it can help occupants go online as well via the Ford SYNC in-car connectivity.
Next is the EcoSport compact crossover with 610 units sold. It presents car-like comfort and looks, matched with SUV capabilities. The vehicle is based on the Ford Fiesta platform, stands 200 mm on the ground, and has a max cargo of 705 L.
As for the Explorer premium SUV, Ford managed to sell 118 units. That’s a 19% increase in sales performance compared to February 2015. They also attributed the Explorer’s improved customer demand to the recent addition of its EcoBoost Limited and Sport variants with 2.3L inline 4-cylinder and 3.5 V6 engines, respectively.
On the other hand, the Ranger continues to be the best-selling pickup truck in the local market today with 535 units sold. Ford sees the segment’s wide range of consumer needs as the driving force behind the Ranger. It’s got 13 different manual and automatic variants in 4x2 or 4x4 powertrains. It also bagged 5 stars in the latest ASEAN NCAP safety tests, including scoring the highest in Adult Occupant Protection.
Lastly, the latest Ford Mustang did just as well. Offered in 2 exciting variants; the 2.3 EcoBoost and the 5.0 V8 GT Premium, this American steed managed to find 42 new homes. For the record, this figure represents the Mustang’s best month-to-date sales performance in the country.
