Ford's US sales up 11 per cent in July

Ford Motor Company's US sales grew 11 per cent compared with a year ago - the best total July sales since 2006. Retail sales are up 19 per cent, marking the company's best July retail sales month since 2005.

With tight inventories, retail car sales are up 13 per cent, utilities are
up 19 per cent, and trucks are up 27 per cent - with strong growth in the coastal regions.

"We saw continued strength and growth in our retail business, particularly in the coastal regions of the country," said Ken Czubay, Ford Vice-President, US Marketing, Sales and Service. "Our small cars and hybrids continue to attract new customers to Ford and away from our competitors, thanks to the vehicles' combination of styling, technology, fuel economy and performance."

Ford small cars – including Fiesta, Focus and C-Max hybrids - are up 32 per cent, with a combined 27,131 sales, making it Ford's best July for small car performance since 2000.

All three Ford utility vehicles are on pace to set sales records this year, with Escape up 4 per cent in July to 22,343 vehicles sold and Explorer up 13 per cent to 12,742 vehicles sold. Edge also posted a record July with 10,541 vehicles sold, a 15 per cent increase from last year.

F-series sales increased 23 per cent, with 60,449 vehicles sold. F-series sales now have increased for 24 consecutive months, and July 2013 marks the best July sales month for F-series since 2006.
