Ford Philippines opened the 2016 Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) with exciting additions to their best-selling nameplates - the new and stylish EcoSport Black Edition and the Everest Titanium 2.2L with Optional Premium Package.
The EcoSport Black Edition is the even sportier version of Ford’s subcompact crossover. Based on the top-of-the-line 1.5L Titanium variant, it’s adorned with trims that are all black, hence the name. This includes the 16-inch alloy wheels, lower and upper grille bezel, dual halogen headlamp housings, front fog lamps’ bezel, and side mirrors.
Aside from the new color motif, it gets add-on accessories that includes roof cross bars, a rear spoiler, sports pedals, and illuminated scuff plates to complete the look.

The EcoSport Black Edition is now available for P998,000 or P13,000 more than the variant it’s based off.
