FORD CROSSOVERS CONTINUE TO SHINE IN JULY; OVERALL SALES DECLINE


* Ford Motor Company's all-new and redesigned crossovers were up 40 percent in July; year-to-date sales also up 40 percent.
* Overall sales totaled 195,245, down 19 percent compared with a year ago; daily rental sales were down 57 percent and sales to individual retail customers were down 17 percent.
* Lincoln registers tenth month in a row of higher retail sales.
* All-new Ford Expedition gains for the eleventh month in a row; Lincoln Navigator was up 8 percent.
* Land Rover sales rose 19 percent, reflecting all-new LR2.

Not a very pretty picture, but GM is predicted to show 30-40% decline, and everyone else is to show decline as well .. we shall see.

Quote from Fields:
"We are encouraged by the progress we have made and consumers' response to our new products," said Mark Fields, Ford's President of the Americas. "At the same time, we know we have a lot of work to do, and July is a sobering reminder of the economic and competitive challenges we face."
