Ford Philippines ended the month of May 2015 with sales reaching 1,652 units, pushing a 19% increase in its year-to-date performance to 8,557 units sold. Leading the pack once again is the Ranger, which remains to be Ford’s best selling nameplate in the country.

Also hitting high sales numbers, the EcoSport compact crossover brags a 20% increase in its year-over-year sales with 542 units sold. It continues to appeal to buyers with its stylish design, high-ground clearance, and smart technology. Meanwhile, 106 units of subcompact Fiesta found new owners last month. This helped it drive its year-to-date sales to 597 units.
“Customer response to our full lineup of global Ford vehicles remains strong across the country, with the wide appeal of the Ranger and EcoSport continuing to drive our overall performance,” said Kay Hart, Managing Director, Ford Philippines.
