DUBAI, UAE – Ford has been ranked the 3rd most intimate brand in the UAE, according to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2019 Report.

The Brand Intimacy 2019 Report contains the most comprehensive rankings of brands based on emotion, analysing the responses of consumers aged 18-64 across 15 industries in the UAE. Brand Intimacy measures the level of influence and emotional connection brands have with their customers which, in turn, affects the decision making process. Creating emotional connections with customers helps drive demand, encourages growth in sales and creates a strong sense of loyalty
