With all the options available in the market today, finding the perfect vehicle that strikes the perfect balance between style, performance, and reliability has never been more challenging.
Whether it’s for work or leisure, SUVs continue to live up to the growing demand for efficiency and practicality, while also upscaling the drive experience with comfort, safety, and connectivity.
One of these SUVs is the Ford Territory, Ford’s newest 5-seater small SUV which sets the standard in the segment with its sleek and stylish design, impressive performance, and driver-assist technologies. It is available in Titanium+ and Trend variants, with a host of features and driver-assist technologies standard in both variants.
If you’re a young professional or about to start a family, here are five reasons why you should consider getting the Ford Territory as your first vehicle, or even your first SUV.
1. It is spacious and comfortable
You will be impressed by the Ford Territory’s spacious interior, allowing you to travel with everything you need, whether for work or for a weekend roadtrip with family or friends.
Inside the Ford Territory, you will enjoy a refined experience every time with perforated leather seat material, multiple cup and bottle holders, and a power outlet. It also features heated and cooled front seats, a 10-inch fully-digital display instrument cluster with 3 selectable themes (Normal, Sport, and Fashion), and ambient lighting with seven color options that will complement your every mood.
2. It is powerful yet efficient
For many SUVs, power may be a given, but not fuel efficiency. The Ford Territory is equipped with a 1.5L EcoBoost engine mated to a CVT transmission with Sport mode, allowing you to zip in and out of the city with ease. In addition to the increased fuel efficiency, this powertrain allows owners to enjoy lower service maintenance costs with a once-a-year scheduled service interval.
3. It is smart
If you’re digitally savvy and perennially connected to the world, then the Ford Territory is your best bet for an SUV with its in-vehicle infotainment display powered by a 10-inch touchscreen with an adjustable quad view, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility, four USB ports, and multiple speakers as well as wireless charging.
4. It is safe
Safety will always be a top priority when getting an SUV for yourself or your family. Drivers and passengers can find assurance and security in Ford Co-Pilot360, a suite of driver-assist technologies that include Active Park Assist with parallel-parking and the segment-first perpendicular parking, 360 Degree Around View Monitor, Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Information System and Lane Departure Warning.
Available driver-assist technologies standard in both variants are Electronic Stability Control including ABS, EBD and Traction Control, Hill Launch Assist, six airbags, rear parking sensors (front and rear parking sensors available on the Titanium+ variant), and Tire Pressure Monitoring System with individual tire pressure display. Both variants are also equipped with High Mount Stop Lamp and Child Seat ISOFIX Anchorage Points.
5. It is an eyecatcher
Style is an important aspect of owning an SUV. Sleek, modern, and bold are standout characteristics of the Ford Territory’s design. Standard design elements include LED headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, LED tail lamps, auto on/off headlamps with follow me home feature, front and rear fog lamps, panoramic moonroof, rear spoiler, and roof rails.
The Ford Territory is available at a starting retail price of PhP 1,179,000. As an exclusive offer, customers availing of the Ford Territory Trend will get a free 5-year scheduled service plan (SSP) for a worry-free ownership experience.
