Raising the bar for mid-sized SUVs, the Everest became Ford’s best-seller in the country in 2016 with full-year sales rising 15 percent year-over-year to a record. The Everest has a striking design, outstanding capability, and advanced connectivity and driver assistance technologies that make it one of the smartest in its segment.

“We’ll continue to work closely with all of our Ford dealer partners to further strengthen our overall customer and brand experience in all locations nationwide,” said Lance Mosley, managing director, Ford Philippines.

In 2016, Ford continued the expansion of its nationwide dealer network by opening three new dealerships, bringing its total to 43 outlets in key locations across the country. Ford also plans to further grow its dealer network this year, including a continued focus on new, key provincial areas.
