Ford Philippines today announced second quarter retail sales of 5,667 vehicles, driven by an all-time record quarterly performance of the segment-defining Ranger pickup truck.

Second quarter retail sales for the Ranger rose 25 percent to a record 3,694 vehicles, driving its year-to-date total up 25 percent to 6,836 vehicles.

“The Ranger remains one of the country’s most preferred pickup trucks, and continues to set the benchmark for the segment with its versatility, capability, power, and class-leading driver assist technologies,” said PK Umashankar, managing director, Ford Philippines.

The “Built Ford Tough” Ranger lineup in the Philippines has grown to 11 variants, including the recent addition of the Ranger XLS Sport which features striking design enhancements for the XLS variant that further strengthen its rugged, visual appeal.

Second quarter sales for the Everest mid-size SUV totaled 1,274 units, pushing up year-to-date sales to 2,919 vehicles. The EcoSport mini-SUV delivered second quarter sales of 487 units, driving its year-to-dates sales to 1,020 vehicles.

It’s more street smart than the previous version, with a bolder look and design, refined interior, and more smart and safe features and driver-assist technologies.
