    June Sales Rise Seven Percent as Escape and Fusion Set Records

    Best Ever Month for Escape
    FordInsideNews.com
    July 3, 2012


    Typically one of the better volume months of the year, June saw Ford sales rise 7-%.

    The all-new Escape allowed the nameplate to have its best month ever, June or other. Though the Fusion is about to be replaced as well, the mid-size car set its best June record.

    F-Series trucks surpassed 50,000 units for the first June in five years.

    Ford Motor Company June and Year to Date Sales Up 7%; Escape Sales Best Ever, While Fusion Posts June Record
    • Ford Motor Company’s year-to-date U.S. sales through June increase 7 percent, totaling 1.14 million vehicles; June sales increase 7 percent from last year at 207,759 vehicles sold
    • Ford Escape sales increase 28 percent – the vehicle’s best month ever; the all-new 2013 Escape is selling on dealer lots in less than five days
    • Ford Fusion sales in June increase 17 percent – the best June sales performance ever
    • Ford Explorer sales up 35 percent in June and 15 percent year to date
    • Ford F-Series sales top 50,000 – the best June sales performance in five years, with 55,025 pickups sold


    DEARBORN, Mich., July 3, 2012 – Ford Motor Company’s U.S. sales are up 7 percent so far this year, with 1.14 million vehicles sold. June sales also increased 7 percent from last year, with 207,759 vehicles sold.

    Ford sales are increasing across the company’s lineup – with cars up 3 percent, utilities up 9 percent and trucks up 9 percent year to date.
    In June, the Ford Escape set an any-month record – with sales up 28 percent – while the Ford Fusion set a record for June. Ford Explorer sales were up 35 percent from last year, and F-Series sales are up 11 percent and topped 50,000 for the first June in five years.

    “June was a good month for Ford and a particularly strong month for vehicles like Escape, Fusion, Explorer and F-Series,” said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “The new 2013 Escape also is off to a very strong start, with vehicles selling on dealer lots in less than five days – even topping the strong start of the new Explorer in 2010.”

    Fusion has posted four months in a row of sales records, including its best June result ever with 24,433 vehicles sold – a 17 percent increase from last year. In the first half of this year, Fusion sales are up over last year’s record first half by 4 percent, with 136,849 vehicles sold.

    Other sales milestones in June: Explorer sales are up 35 percent; Edge sales are up 6 percent; and America’s top-selling vehicle for 30 years, the F-Series, sold 55,025 pickups. F-Series remains America’s number one selling vehicle in the first half of 2012.

    The new Escape looks like a grand slam... The Fusion is selling like hot cakes in the last month of the current model... The future looks good for Ford...

    It's interesting that Lincoln has sold almost as many MKX as MKZ's.

    just like Lexus
    from memory the ES & RX each = about a third of total sales
    usually

    &
    afaik the Escape numbers from combined new ones and clearance of the old ones
    (edit: yup
    saw a post elsewhere that the ratio was 4 new to 6 old)

    We all know Lincoln will be showing beyond better numbers next year at this time. There will be the sales runaway success story: MKZ. I know i'm whinning (so what else is new?) but can we start seeing some MKZ hype leading to the actual on sale date??? The "now it gets interesting" thingie obviously isn't working for MKS so hopefully we will see something more fitting of the Lincoln Brand. That "gets interesting" campaign could have worked for Mercury perhaps but oh well, that's another topic.....
