If there's one new Ford model we've been waiting for quite a while now, it's the next-gen Territory. Already available in our left-hand-drive neighbor Vietnam since last October, the upcoming crossover comes as a genuine Ford product for the ASEAN market, as opposed to its predecessor which was based on the JMC Yusheng S330.
On our shores, Ford Philippines has stopped offering the Trend variant of the current-gen Territory – the only one left is the top-spec Titanium variant, showing indicative signs they're about to replace the current model with a new one.
But when exactly is Ford launching the all-new Territory? Well, the short answer could be at next month's Manila International Auto Show (MIAS).
Sources from Ford shared with us that the next-generation Territory will be launched in April. And while they did not specify which date, it rather makes perfect sense for Ford to launch the second generation of its best-selling crossover at MIAS, since it's one of the biggest auto shows in the country.
Furthermore, those who would like to get their hands on the next-generation Territory will not have to wait long after the crossover is revealed, as our source says the initial batch of units could arrive by May.
Based on the Vietnam-spec Territory, the all-new model will wear the brand's new global DNA design language, as well as a wide array of intelligent driving aids to go along with a more powerful 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine.
As for its pricing, we should expect the all-new Territory to get a significant bump from the current-gen Territory Titanium's price tag of PHP 1.310 million. By how much? We reckon it could fall between the PHP 1.4 to 1.7 million range.
