It was back in the third quarter of last year when Ford Philippines expanded its lineup with the launch of the all-new Ford Territory. From then on, it has already established quite a following, with the Blue Oval attributing the strength of this model's sales to its “versatility, practicality, driving performance, and value for money.”
Designed to fit the lifestyle of young professionals and starting families, the Ford Territory is a feature-packed small SUV that combines design, technology and functionality to its consumers.
Buyers of the abovementioned model soon created an online community composed for customers, enthusiasts, and fans: the Ford Territory Club Philippines (FTCP).
Founded in July 2020, the FTCP Facebook group is made up of more than 11,000 members, many of whom own a Ford Territory.
In its recent poll within the group, FTCP members were asked about their favorite Ford Territory features. Below are the top five answers:
This allows natural light into the cabin with the simple press of a button. The said feature can be accessed whether you are sitting in front or in the second row.
360-Degree Around View Monitor
This gives visibility of the car’s immediate surroundings that can be utilized when driving at low speed or backing up. The 360-Degree Around View Monitor offers a safer and more convenient driving experience.
Blind Spot Information System
This alerts the driver when a vehicle is detected by the system — particularly when it falls in his or her blind spot. An indicator light in the side view mirror lights up.
10-inch touchscreen infotainment system
An intuitive 10-inch touchscreen headlines the infotainment system fitted in the Ford Territory. It allows the driver or passenger to control not only the vehicle audio, but also its air-conditioning system, ambient lightning, among others.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility
Drivers can also connect their smartphones to the infotainment system, thanks to Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatibility. All they have to do is connect via Bluetooth to gain access to their apps via Territory’s touchscreen.
Ford Philippines marketing director Patrick Manigbas noted that the Territory’s capabilities makes it a good pick.
“Whether it’s your daily commute, essential travels, work or personal errands, or a leisure trip with the family, you can definitely own every driving moment with the Ford Territory with features that make it a comfortable and fun to drive SUV,” Manigbas was quoted as saying.
