Ford Sales Up 14% in June, Truck Demand Rebounds
“Strong demand for Ford’s fuel-efficient cars and crossovers continues, and we now are seeing truck buyers return to the market with significant appetite for our fuel-efficient V6 engines,” said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service.
As you’d expect, the Fiesta and Focus combined forces for a total of 26,920 sales in June, up 66 percent versus a year ago. Fiesta sales were 5,535, and Focus sales were 21,385, up 41 percent versus a year ago. The Fiesta and Focus are the fastest-turning models in Ford dealer showrooms. Fusion sales totaled 20,808, up 13 percent versus a year ago, marking the sixth straight monthly sales record.
“The Fiesta and Focus are driving Ford’s retail share gains in markets beyond our traditional geographic areas of strength,” said Czubay. “In California, Ford’s retail share is the highest since 2006. We also have seen gains in the East and Southeast.”
Ford truck sales increased across the lineup in June, with F-Series up 7 percent, Ranger up 18 percent, Transit Connect up 40 percent and Econoline up 4 percent over the same month of last year. Transit Connect sales were 2,992 – the second highest sales month ever.
Year-to-date, total sales are 1.07 million, up 12 percent, while retail sales were up 14 percent and fleet sales were up 9 percent.
