This is Why We Got the Ford Territory Instead of the Escape

Having settled the question surrounding the Ford Territory’s paternity, the next obvious question on everyone’s mind was: is the Filipino consumer getting shortchanged? Why is Ford Philippines offering the Territory when they could have brought in the Escape or Kuga instead?

Ford Explorer, Escape Flunk IIHS Passenger-Side Impact Test

Who says going for an SUV is safer for you? The latest round of grueling crash tests from the US-based Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or IIHS reveals major flaws in some compact and mid-sized SUVs, particularly with their new passenger-side small overlap front protection test.

NAIAS 2016: Ford Isn't A Car Company Anymore

You’re looking at the future of the Ford Motor Company. Though it doesn’t look it in terms of design or drivetrain (it’s introducing the Blue Oval’s first use of idle start/stop—something other automakers have been implementing on their products for quite some time), the 2017 Escape it’s the beginning of Ford’s move to make their vehicles smarter (you can read more on the Escape at the LA Auto Show here).

LA Auto Show: 2017 Ford Escape Packs New Engines, Tech

Ford is giving its compact crossover a substantial makeover for the 2017 model year, at least in North America. Launched at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the refreshed Escape packs two new EcoBoost engines as well as new connectivity and creature comfort features.

Review: 2015 Ford Escape 1.6 SE EcoBoost

Undeniably, the Ford Escape is an impressive piece of kit. Regardless of what measurement you use, it’s got all the bells and whistles to satisfy even the most tech-savvy individual. Though the overall execution is somewhat mixed (read our Ford Escape 2.0 EcoBoost Titanium AWD review), there’s no denying that it’s pushing the value quotient way up to the stratosphere. But that story’s largely applicable to the top-line Titanium model. How does the Escape story apply to the “base” 1.6 SE variant? Read on.

Review: 2015 Ford Escape 2.0 EcoBoost Titanium AWD

The compact crossover genre was popularized by the Japanese. Given their propensity to favor small cars, putting height (but not necessarily four-wheel drive) seemed perfect for the urban environment. After all, going up mall ramps diagonally is uncool. Americans, who were mostly busy making rolling versions of the Stegosaurus, soon got into the game. One of the biggest hits is the Ford Escape. Locally, it brought the Blue Oval brand from niche to mainstream player almost overnight. Alas, it almost fell victim to fossilization after a model run lasting a good 12 years (2000-2012) despite three facelifts. (If you want to read the review on the Escape 1.6 SE EcoBoost, click here).

2015 Ford Escape vs the Competition

It seems Ford Philippines is re-defining what ‘premium’ in ‘premium compact crossover’ really means with the all-new 2015 Escape. Available in two variants, the 1.6 SE and 2.0 Titanium, it’s bound to draw comparisons with the best compact crossovers available in the market as of now namely, the Subaru Forester, Mazda CX-5, and Nissan X-Trail.

UPDATE: here is the 2015 Ford Escape vs the competition. (10/28)

Christmas came early for would-be compact crossover buyers as Ford Philippines has finally unveiled (and priced) their all-new 2015 Ford Escape. Continuing Ford’s value-for-money approach, the all-new Escape is available in two competitive variants: the 1.6 EcoBoost SE 2WD and the 2.0 EcoBoost Titanium AWD. Both models are already available for reservations at Ford dealerships nationwide with deliveries starting in January 2015.

MIAS 2014: Ford Previews 2015 Escape; Destined to Bring the Fight to Subaru Forester?

Photos by Ulysses Ang
The demise of Ford’s C-segment crossover in the Philippines is greatly exaggerated as the company used the Manila International Auto Show to preview the all-new 2015 Escape—a crossover that’s expected to bridge the gap between the EcoSport and Explorer in terms of both features and price. Though no official specs were given during the preview, Ford Philippines Managing Director Kay Hart announced that the 2015 Escape will be formally launched in the fourth quarter of 2014 with deliveries to start soon thereafter.

Review: 2004 Ford Escape 2.3L

It’s a fact that ninety-five percent of SUV owners haven’t even thought of going off-road.  They probably avoid the smallest of potholes and slow down to take the highway metal joint.  That said, the discussion of whether to have this or that all-wheel drive system is as important as what color of socks you should wear for the day.

Review: 2004 Ford Escape V6

There are several ways of waking up in the morning, from the unpleasant blare of an alarm clock to the stimulating aroma of breakfast cooking in the kitchen.  A leisurely breakfast is all fine for the weekend, but for rush-hour workdays, a quicker solution is warranted.  That's where coffee usually comes in: one gulp and when the caffeine warms up the veins, so too does the brain.  Now what of us who are not partial to hot Java?  We discovered something just as effective: seeing a bright yellow compact SUV parked in our garage did the trick.
