Ford PH to raise prices on select models up to P123,000 due to Safeguard Duty

The local distributor of the Blue Oval in the country has already started to jack up the price of certain vehicles by as much as P123,000 following the imposition of Republic Act 8800 (Safeguard Measures Act).


Based on its latest announcement, Ford Philippines have increased the prices of select variants of the Ranger and Territory. To note, the Ford Territory was only unveiled to the local market last year, while the updated Ranger lineup, just last month.

The American carmaker’s local distributor had taken some of the brunt of the adjustments.


“In order to manage the impact of the safeguard duty to its customers, Ford Philippines is taking on the partial amount of the tariff for selected Ranger variants,” Ford Philippines claimed.


The first two vehicle distributors who announced the imposition of the upward price adjustment were Sojitz G Auto Philippines (Geely’s local marketer) and Legado Motors Inc. (Philippine partner is Guangzhou Automobile Company).
