Ford US Sales Increased 13% in August
Ford Escape compact crossover sales reached 28,188, a 37 percent increase from a year ago, while sales of the Fusion were up by 21% to 21,690 units. Both result were new best-ever figures for the month of August.
The F-Series range continued to be the backbone with 58,201 pickups sold. While the Focus is now the best-selling car in the world, in America, it only represented about a tenth of overall figures. Focus sales increase 35 percent with 19,073 vehicles sold.
“As fuel prices rose again during August, we saw growing numbers of people gravitate toward our fuel-efficient vehicles – cars, utilities and trucks,” said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “Customers increasingly value savings at the pump, and Ford is answering the call with a full family of vehicles with leading fuel efficiency and the power to choose which vehicle best meets their needs.”
