One of Ford Philippines' latest gambles has paid off in a big way. When the brand brought over the Territory to our shores in mid-2020, it wasn't a lock to become a best-selling model. It's been only 15 months since its launch, but the compact crossover has sold surprisingly well—8,000 units, to be exact.
How did the Ford Territory achieve such a feat? Well, it helps that it's still one of the best deals in the market today. The combination of good looks, jam-packed features, and an attractive price point continues to attract many car buyers.
Demand for the vehicle has been high, and word is Ford has at times struggled to meet it amid global supply chain issues. Despite this, Territory fans have popped up in droves, even starting their own group, Ford Territory Club Philippines (FECP).
According to an internal poll, FECP members' favorite features include the expansive panoramic moonroof, the 360-degree camera, the 10-inch infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
These features are big selling points for the Territory, and the way Ford has packaged them into one vehicle has led to its meteoric ascent. As the crossover swept car awards left and right over the past year, its fanbase has only grown to match. The next milestone is 10,000 units. We wouldn't be surprised if the Territory achieves this early into the new year.
The Ford Territory is a stylish and modern compact crossover powered by a 1.5-liter EcoBoost gasoline engine.
