Ford Philippines finished as the top six car brand in the Philippines last year in terms of unit sales. It fell short to enter the top five brands in the country by less than 750 units. Suzuki Philippines clinched the fifth spot last 2020 with 15,515 units sold.

Despite not being able to enter the top five car brands in 2020, Ford PH shared that the Ford Ranger is the best-selling 4x4 pickup truck in the Philippines. The 4x4 versions of Ford’s pickup truck registered a total of 5,093 units sold or 52 percent of the total 9,767 Ranger sales in 2020.

The company aims to retain the Ranger’s positive sales performance this 2021. To do just that, Ford PH has confirmed through an announcement on its internal employee website that the facelifted Ranger is coming to the market this year. More importantly, the Blue Oval has already sent out the invites to its first virtual launch this year, which is set to happen next week.

The facelifted Ford Ranger debuted in Thailand last 2020. As a facelift model, the Ranger features a restyled trapezoidal grille with a contrasting accent. Ford has also given the Ranger Wildtrak a new set of black alloy wheels along with black side mirrors and door handles. The rear, on the other hand, stays relatively similar to the outgoing model. But, the Thai-spec facelifted Ford Ranger Wildtrak now comes with a power roller shutter on its cargo bed.
