Ford Philippines Bags 15 Awards; Ranger Wildtrak Hailed as Philippine 2014-2015 Truck of the Year

Ford Philippines ended November on a victorious note as it received a total of 13 awards from the Car Awards Group, Inc. (CAGI) and the Auto Focus People’s and Media’s Choice Awards.

The 3.2L Ranger Wildtrak M/T was named Truck of the Year for 2014-2015 by the CAGI, making this win the second consecutive year the Ranger has been given the prestigious distinction.  Last year, the award was given to the automatic variant of the award-winning pickup truck.

The CAGI also recognized the following Ford nameplates during their awards night:
  • 1.5L EcoSport Titanium - Spyder Innovation Award

  • 2.2L Ranger WT 4x2 A/T – Best 4x2 Truck  
  • 3.2L Ranger WT 4x4 M/T – Best 4x4 Truck
“We’re thrilled that the CAGI has again hailed the Ranger as Truck of the Year.  We’re also proud that the Ranger remains our top-selling nameplate and continues to be regarded as the benchmark among pickup trucks in the market today in terms of performance, versatility, design, and capability,” said Kay Hart, managing director, Ford Philippines.

Earlier in November, Sunshine TV also held their annual Auto Focus People’s and Media’s Choice Awards night where Ford Philippines received eight trophies.  Awards were given to car manufacturers whose products were given top marks by both consumers and media.

  1. Hintayin mo pagdating pa ng bagong everest baka malunod ka!

  2. Sa mga bagong specs na wala sa iba!

  3. Bakit nanalo yang bigotilyo na yan na may mouthguard pa? Dapat BT-50 na lang dahil pareho lang naman platform at powertrain ngunit di hamak mas maganda tignan.

  4. I think the all new hilux will take the leadership spot. Considering that the current model has been like 10 yrs old and it is still selling well. It should be a very competitive and hotly cobtested market for 2015. :)

    1. Pangit yun. Brand yan para sa mga gaya-gaya at walang sariling pag-iisip.

  5. still mazda.. masdaling masira
