MANILA, Philippines, 5 April 2017 – Ford Philippines today announced it delivered an all-time record monthly performance in March with retail sales jumping 37 percent year-over-year to 3,754 units, led by Ford’s Big Three nameplates – Ranger, Everest and EcoSport – and demand across its full lineup of Ford vehicles.
“We got things back on track in March and were able to process a record number of customer orders, particularly for our three best-sellers,” said Lance Mosley, managing director, Ford Philippines. “Healthy demand for our North-American import models, the Explorer, Expedition and Mustang also contributed to the record month.”
The Everest led the charge in March, achieving a record monthly total for any Ford nameplate in the Philippines with retail sales increasing 28 percent year-over-year to 1,471 vehicles.
Continuing to redefine the mid-size SUV segment, the Everest features a bold design, advanced technology, stunning off-road and on-road capability, and a refined, premium interior for up to seven passengers.
The EcoSport continued its streak in March as one of Ford’s top-selling vehicles in the Philippines with retail sales rising 60 percent from last year to 1,070 vehicles. This helped drive its year-to-date sales up 35 percent to 2,467 vehicles.
The segment-defining Ranger achieved March sales that rose 50 percent year-over-year to 1,042 vehicles. Year-to-date sales of the Ranger – the number two pickup truck in the market – have risen nearly 22 percent to 2,153 vehicles.
“The ‘Built Ford Tough’ Ranger continues to be the most capable and versatile truck out there, and our full range of 15 models means that we have a Ranger that is ideal for whatever any customer would want or need to throw at it,” said Mosley.
Ford’s North American-built models delivered strong sales in March, helping drive the record sales month. The Explorer premium mid-size SUV recorded March sales of 83 vehicles, the Expedition full-size SUV saw sales of 17 vehicles, the iconic Mustang had its best month of the year so far with 24 vehicle sales.
