Ford PH celebrates 25 years in the market

In the local automotive scene, the major players for decades have been Japanese brands such as Toyota, Honda, and Mitsubishi. However, amongst the sea of Asian brands, one American carmaker has firmly placed itself as part of the major players in the Philippines: Ford.

Happy 25th Ford Philippines

So much success has followed the brand locally that it is celebrating its 25th anniversary in the Philippines. It was in 1997 when Ford Motor Company Philippines, Inc. (FMCPI) was established. At the end of that year, FMCPI sold a total of 97 units of the Expedition, the first Ford vehicle sold in the Philippines.

Over the last 25 years, close to 400,000 customers have become and are existing owners of Ford vehicles in the Philippines, which include the Club Wagon, EcoSport, Escape, Everest, Expedition, Explorer, Explorer Sport Trac, F150, Lynx, Mustang, Ranger, Territory, Town Car (Lincoln) and Transit. The automotive company has likewise grown its dealer network to 49 dealerships around the country, serving the sales and service needs of its still-growing customer base.
