Ford US small car sales reach highest October in 11 Years

Ford total US sales grew across the portfolio in October, with cars up 2 per cent, utilities up 2 per cent, F-series pickups up 8 per cent and Econoline and Transit Connect sales up 19 and 22 per cent, respectively.

"Our commitment to deliver a fuel-efficient lineup of cars, utilities
and trucks is winning over customers and helping grow our retail sales," said Ken Czubay, Ford Vice-President, US Marketing, Sales and Service. "Our fuel-efficient and capable full-size pickups delivered our strongest October sales results since 2004 - an F-series record year - and we surpassed our own expectations for the first full month of C-Max Hybrid sales."

Focus, all-new C-Max Hybrid and Fiesta sales totaled 25,493 vehicles in October, Ford's best October small car sales month since 2001 and a 54 per cent increase year over year.

October Escape sales increased 4 per cent, with 19,832 vehicles sold. Escape is on-pace for another record sales year in 2012, aiming to surpass 2011 record sales of 254,293 vehicles.

America's best-selling vehicle, Ford F-series, sold a total of 56,497 vehicles during the month of October. This not only represents an 8 per cent increase over last year but also the 15th straight month of sales increases for F-series.

Ford sold 168,456 total vehicles in October, unchanged from a year ago. Retail sales were up 2 per cent compared to last year.
