With the new advertising campaign, Ford India intends to bring about the awareness of the Ford brand, which is known for its quality and excellent driving dynamics. Ford India hopes to collect the thrill of the real world driving, experienced by the user to enhance their presence in the country. This campaign will be run on the media outlets including the Facebook and television.
