Driven by the all-new Ford Ranger and the continued popularity of the all-new Ford Fiesta, Ford Philippines announced a 23 percent increase in July retail sales to 745 units as compared to last year's July sales.

The all-new Ford Ranger proved incredibly popular in its first month of sales in the Philippines with sales of 246 units, representing the best-ever sales of the compact pick-up since its introduction in the Philippines in 1999.

“We are encouraged by the demand for the class-defining all-new Ranger. With its impressive combination of capability, smart technology, safety, excellent fuel economy, and comfort, we know that the all-new Ranger will redefine the pick-up truck segment in the Philippines,” said Randy Krieger, president, Ford Group Philippines.

“With sales and deliveries of the all-new Ranger now underway and with the recent launches of both the all-new Ford Focus on the iconic Ford Mustang sports car, we are really excited for the months ahead.” added Krieger.

In order to support the aggressive expansion of its vehicle lineup, Ford will expand its network of authorized dealers this year by adding new dealerships in Baguio, Bohol, Butuan, Cainta, General Santos, Isabella, Laoag, Makati, Manila Bay, Naga, Tarlac and Zamboanga making a total of 35 locations across the country.
