Ford Motor Company June and year-to-date sales up 7 per cent

Ford Motor Company's US sales are up 7 per cent so far this year, with 1.14-million vehicles sold. June sales also increased 7 per cent from last year, with 207,759 vehicles sold.

Ford sales are increasing across the company's lineup – with cars up 3 per cent, utilities up
9 per cent and trucks up 9 per cent year to date.

In June, the Ford Escape set an any-month record – with sales up 28 per cent – while the Ford Fusion set a record for June. Ford Explorer sales were up 35 per cent from last year, and F-series sales are up 11 per cent and topped 50,000 for the first June in five years.

"June was a good month for Ford and a particularly strong month for vehicles like Escape, Fusion, Explorer and F-series," said Ken Czubay, Ford Vice-President, US Marketing, Sales and Service. "The new 2013 Escape also is off to a very strong start, with vehicles selling on dealer lots in less than five days – even topping the strong start of the new Explorer in 2010."

Fusion has posted four months in a row of sales records, including its best June result ever with 24,433 vehicles sold – a 17 per cent increase from last year. In the first half of this year, Fusion sales are up over last year’s record first half by 4 per cent, with 136,849 vehicles sold.

Explorer sales are up 35 per cent; Edge sales are up 6 per cent; and America's top-selling vehicle for 30 years, the F-series, sold 55,025 Pick-ups. F-series remains America's number one selling vehicle in the first half of 2012.
