the carmaker said.

The introduction of more vehicles across ASEAN, including the new Ranger pickup and Everest SUV models, company attract a wider range of customers, said Mark Kaufman, president, Ford ASEAN.

“Additionally, we continued to enhance our customer and ownership experience, as well as expand our Ford dealer network in markets across the region,” added Kaufman.
