Ford pick-up wins prestigious award


    THE Ford Ranger Raptor has once again proven its leadership in the pickup segment as it won Best Pick-up in the 15th Annual C! Awards organized by C! Magazine.

    The Ford Ranger Raptor is Asia Pacific’s first high-speed off-road compact pickup truck that builds on the success of the Ranger’s smart design and engineering with the Ford Performance DNA, setting a new benchmark in off-road capability. The Ranger Raptor has a new powertrain combination of a 2.0-liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine and 10-speed transmission that has proven durability and on-road and off-road capability.

    The Ford Everest also won as Best Mid-Sized Ladder Frame SUV, making it one of the front-runners in the country’s fiercely-competitive SUV segment. Ford Philippines launched the new Ford Everest this year packed with features that offer greater power, performance, safety, and efficiency, which include the new-generation 2.0L Bi-Turbo diesel and 2.0L Turbo diesel engines paired with 10-speed automatic transmission, offering improved fuel efficiency and better acceleration.

    With the new powertrain, customers driving the Ranger Raptor and the Ford Everest can enjoy lower service maintenance costs with a once-a-year scheduled service interval instead of twice a year, paving the way for better ownership experience.

    “We thank our partners and friends from C! Magazine for these citations that put our vehicles in leadership positions in their various segments,” shares PK Umashankar, managing director, Ford Philippines. “These accolades testify to the world-class quality of our vehicles and we look forward to seeing more customers experience their best-in-class features and ‘Built Ford Tough’ capabilities.”
