Ford achieves best October US retail sales Since 2004

Ford Motor Company's October US total sales of 191,985 vehicles rose 14 per cent over a year ago. Retail sales are up 15 per cent, at 142,487 vehicles. It is the company's best October retail sales performance since 2004.

Gains were broad-based, with passenger cars
up 19 per cent, utilities up 9 per cent, and trucks up 14 per cent. Ford Fusion and Fiesta posted best-ever October sales, and F-series again topped 60,000 sales.

"October was simply an outstanding retail performance, as consumers continued to choose Ford for great fuel efficiency, styling and value at all levels of the market," said John Felice, Vice-President, US Marketing, sales and service. "The combination of great new products, such as Fusion and Escape, along with the strength of our dealers helped us achieve our best October retail sales month since 2004."

Fusion sales of 21,740 vehicles jumped 71 per cent year-over-year, making it the car's best-ever sales performance for October. The strongest growth for Fusion is in the west region of the US, with retail sales up 77 per cent. In the eastern region of the country, Fusion retail sales are up 65 per cent.

Escape sales of 22,253 vehicles increased 12 per cent, while Fiesta sales of 4,337 vehicles increased 9 per cent - setting a new record for October. F-series sales of 63,803 trucks are up 13 per cent, making October the sixth-straight month above the 60,000-vehicle mark for F-series. The last time Ford sold more than 60,000 trucks for six consecutive months was 2006.
