One might think that this is an Australian Territory, but in fact it is a Chinese Territory. Just to be clear, there are no territorial disputes between the two. They share the same name and proudly wear the blue oval, but both are totally different in every aspect.
The Ford-engineered and designed all-new Ford Territory is Ford Philippines’ latest SUV offering that will be launched in the country this August. It is set to redefine the SUV C-segment market as it is spacious, feature-packed, and competitively-priced with the Ford DNA at its core.
Designed to empower the modern Filipino on the road, the all-new Ford Territory combines a stylish sleek look, impressive performance, compact size, spacious interior, and smart and safe technologies that will offer an upgraded driving experience to value-seeking young professionals and starting families.
With dimensions of 4.6m in length, 1.9m in width, and 1.7m in height, the all-new Ford Territory is powered by a 1.5L EcoBoost engine mated to a CVT transmission for refinement and fuel efficiency. With this powertrain, customers can enjoy lower service maintenance costs with a once-a-year scheduled service interval instead of twice a year.
Available in Titanium and Trend variants, the Ford Territory 5-seater SUV will be equipped with driver-assist technologies such as 360-degree camera, Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Park Assist with parallel and segment-first perpendicular parking function, leather power adjust seats with cooling function, and an in-vehicle infotainment system with 10-inch touch screen with multi-view function and wireless charging. The all-new Ford Territory also comes with panoramic moonroof and 18” inch alloy wheels.
“With the Ford DNA ingrained in its design, quality, and capability, the all-new Ford Territory is designed and engineered following Ford’s highest global quality standards to deliver an all-in-one SUV package that will deliver great value to Filipino customers looking for a stylish, spacious and technologically-advanced SUV,” says PK Umashankar, managing director, Ford Philippines.
Ford Philippines is the first market in the company’s International Market Group (IMG) composed of nearly 100 markets around the world to offer the all-new Ford Territory, which will reinforce Ford’s presence in the small and mini-SUV segments in the country.
