Ford Philippines has now revealed that the new Ford Territory is already en route to be launched in the country on August 14. The crucial development follows the Blue Oval badge's announcement in July, suggesting its next compact crossover's arrival.
According to Ford's local arm, the upcoming Ford Territory's launching will be conducted online. Like its current lineup of vehicles, the imminent crossover will feature familiar perks under the hood, alongside a design that begs to luxuriate.
At the time of its launch, the new Ford Territory will be offered in two variants – the Trend and Titanium trims. When it comes to design, the crossover is slated to feature a modern, sleek appeal. Meanwhile, the vehicle is likewise pegged to arrive with 18-inch alloy wheels.
The company's local branch also revealed that the vehicle would arrive with a slew of exciting features. These include the 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, and adaptive park assist with parallel and perpendicular parking functions, among others.
Inside, the new Ford Territory is also expected to arrive with leather power-adjustable seats with cooling function, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless charging, and a panoramic moonroof.
Ford Philippines also confirmed that the upcoming Ford Territory would be powered by a 1.5-liter EcoBoost motor, which will come with Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT). Its power figures remain to be undetermined at the moment.
Nevertheless, with the powertrain in tow, Ford claimed that consumers would have to enjoy lower service maintenance costs, with a once-a-year scheduled service interval, instead of the regular servicing that is performed twice a year.
The vehicle's dimensions were also revealed – 4,600mm in length, 1,900mm in width, and 1,700mm in height.
The pricing of the all-new Ford Territory is still up in the air. However, the current estimates point that the vehicle could launch with a price range between PHP 800,000 to over PHP 1,200,000. With Ford's standards, this one is highly attractive.
Ford Philippines is noted for being the first market in the firm's International Market Group (IMG), which composes of nearly 100 markets globally, to offer the new Ford Territory.
The new Ford Territory is specially manufactured to appeal to young professionals and consumers with small families.
