    How’s the adaptive cruise control? Can it still be used during traffic?

    If I remember correctly, the Territory is made and assembled in Nanchang, China.
    Ford Thailand only manufactures/assembles the Ranger and Everest (plus Mazda)

    Nothing against the Territory, its still a Ford which means it will be supported by Ford Philippines.

    IMO, its one of the major deciding factors in buying a car... Which company distributes it (locally) and how much do I trust the after sales support.

    Hence, for 2021... Ford Philippines > Sojitz Corporation

    oh, I stand corrected. I just assumed the launch event which was held in Ford Thailand was due to having it assembled there which can take advantage of Asean tariffs.

    i have yet to try it. I’m not confident with our road markings and general driving behaviors of our fellow countrymen.

    i’ll hopefully try it in an expressway once ECQ is done.

    Been eyeing the Terriroty as a replacement for my fozzy. Good thing I dont feel the urge to get a new ride.

    How's the ride compared to the ecosport? Both are 1.5L enginee right?

    The ride is great except for when i need to sudden brake where I feel the brake pads would skid a little maybe due to the weight of the chassis. First time to own SUV so I don’t have proper reference points.

    1.5 of the previous Ecosport is NON ecoboost. (100~hp)
    1.5 of Territory is ecoboost (turbo) @ 154hp which helps a lot.

    P.s. Current refreshed Ecosport now has 1.0 ecoboost engine which helps with fuel economy and retain the driving dynamics.
