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.

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.”

Ford's sales are still up 7% even after the ranger sales comps are now weighing against the sales comparisons for 2011.

Fusion and Escape are going to be segment busters. The folks over at Obama Motors won't be happy that Ford continues to load the gun and continues to fire without remorse. But this is what happens when the smart get stronger and the stupid run to uncle sam.

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.....
