Three new owners Mark Almero, Eldin Reyes, and Kahlil Robles, share their experience with their purchase of the Ford Territory and what they like about their new Ford SUV.

Marking their own territory 

For 29-year-old senior internal auditor Mark Almero, getting the best value out of any purchase is his utmost priority. 

Recalling his car-buying journey, he shared that the Ford Territory is his first car purchase. As he’ll be using his hard-earned money, his decision required a lengthy process. 

“I read reviews, watched vlogs, compared specifications, and even joined car clubs online to really discover my car options. When I came across an article about the Ford Territory, it really piqued my interest because it has all the things I want in a car – luxurious interiors, safety and tech features, and the overall great design,” said Mark. 

As a young professional, the features that appealed to him the most were the smart features equipped in the Ford Territory. “I really enjoy using the 360-degree camera, touchscreen infotainment system, the moonroof, and all those little things that make my driving experience more enjoyable and convenient. I didn’t know I needed them until I used them,” he shared.

Eldin Reyes

It was a different story for 43-year-old system administrator and father of 2, Eldin Reyes. The main deciding factor on his purchase of the Ford Territory was its space and convenience features. 

“When my wife gave birth to our second son, we agreed that the new car should be more spacious and safer to drive. The Ford Territory is our second car and we basically use it if we want a more comfortable trip,” Eldin said. “We also particularly like the auto brake hold function which proves useful especially when we’re caught in traffic,” he added. 


For Kahlil Robles – a 32-year old brand and advertising executive who recently got married and is looking to start a family soon – his primary consideration for choosing the Ford Territory was its jampacked features and compact yet expansive cabin space. 

“I’ve been driving a sedan for almost a decade now. When I got married, I found the perfect opportunity (and more reasons) to finally invest in a bigger car that will best serve both my needs and my family’s. The Ford Territory was easily my best choice because it has everything that I needed in an SUV,” Kahlil said. 

“Its sleek interiors and body caught my eye at first, but looking closely at its features, especially the 360-degree camera and the panoramic moonroof, I knew right then and there that I had to get it.” 

Mark, Eldin, and Kahlil are Ford Territory owners in different stages of their lives. They have decided to get Ford’s latest SUV for varying reasons, needs, and purposes, proving that the Ford Territory is an SUV for the modern Filipino driver.
