Instead of performance upgrades, Ford has opted to further polish this vehicle in the tech department, albeit ever so slightly.

Other than that, there isn’t much else to point out. The new exterior graphics are nice, and units also come with special edition floor mats. If you like it, a unit is going to set you back 216,888 Malaysian ringgit (a little over P2.5 million).
