    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.

    Update... for future reference :LOL:

    Here are the customs duties levied on imported cars | Visor

    Why do most Chinese vehicles have sub-1500cc engines for PH? | Autoindustriya

    Sold Tucson and Montero because of issues like warning lights, steering noise, and underchassis kalampag. Toyota may be stiff and boring, but what the heck they are built to last.

    guys need some advice. I'm seriously considering replacing my old sedan with a new crossover SUV next year. I would like to request some inputs on the following model below from people here who actually owns (or used to own) them..

    - Ford Territory Trend
    - VW T-Cross S

    - Geely Coolray Sport
    - Ford Ecosport Trend

    I'm seriously eyeing the top two.. let me know the ups and down of owning, maintaining and after-sales service of this rides.

    TIA!

    I test drove the T Cross 2 weeks ago. looking at it for my daughter who's in college now. it's not bad for city driving.

    I'm Ok with VW BGC after sales service so far. got a unit from them in 2019.

    From that list, I'd take away the Ecosport.

    The Territory seems to be a good choice, with all the bells and whistles, at a very good price point. I was considering the Toyota Cross vs the Ford Territory, but the Toyota Cross seemed very bland vs the Territory. Of course, it's just that "It's a Ford" thing that keeps nagging me, and a Toyota is forever... but I have several friends that have gotten the Territory that are very, very happy with it.

    Thanks to the additional input! at least now I only have to choose between the Territory Trend and T-Cross S.. and its convenient as they both have dealership at BGC.
    I also checked the Kia Seltos BTW, its cheaper but it seems less premium.

    I suggest that you join their facebook groups and observe.

    We were initially planning to get a Territory Titanium until I saw some complains from their Facebook group.
