July Auto Sales: Crossovers and SUVs Help Ford's Upward Trend
17.1 Percent Increase in SUV sales
For the month of July, the Ford Motor Company recorded sales of 212,236 vehicles, an increase of 9.6 percent when compared to the same time last year. The Ford brand saw sales totaling 204,673 vehicles for the month, up 9.4 percent. Lincoln posted sales of 7,863 vehicles, up 13.6 percent.
“July proved to be a very good month for Ford and Lincoln with positive gains across the board in all the major segments. Escape and Fusion were big contributors to our sales increases, with both setting July sales records. F-Series again topped the 60,000-vehicle sales mark and we’re seeing great initial demand for our launch vehicles, such as the Transit Connect, Transit Connect Wagon and the Lincoln MKC as availability builds,” said John Felice, Ford vice president of U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service.
