MANILA, Philippines, 13 December 2023 – FordPass, Ford’s mobile application that lets customers access vehicle-specific content and support, has marked its first year since it was launched in the Philippines in December 2022.
The FordPass app offers customers a richer ownership experience as a one-stop platform with an array of functional and practical features that offers convenience to customers.
To date, there are over 21,000 Next-Gen Ford vehicle owners who are able to maximize the features of FordPass, including remote door lock & unlock, remove engine stop & start with pre-cooling, vehicle locator, and vehicle status conveniently in the app.
Other useful features that customers enjoy in the FordPass app are Intelligent Oil Life Monitor (IOLM) and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) (if vehicle equipped). The IOLM keeps track of user’s driving habits and calculates the health of engine oil, allowing users to change engine oil only when necessary, while TPMS monitors the vehicle’s tires’ real-time air pressure.
“We are so pleased that our customers are able to appreciate the useful features of FordPass as an app that can really enhance the ownership experience,” said Mike Breen, managing director, Ford Philippines. “We are excited to introduce more features and further enhance the user interface to have more Ford owners enjoy the benefits of a connected vehicle through FordPass.”
