Ford Sales
The success of the Ford Fusion has helped Ford drive great sales in July.

The Ford Motor Company reported its best July since 2006 with total and retail sales up 5 percent last month, driven by the F-Series, Fusion, and Mustang.

A total of 222,731 vehicles were sold last month, with F-Series retail sales up 13 percent to deliver the pickup trucks’ own best results since 2006, even though transaction pricing is at all-time record (up $3,200 compared to last year).

SUV sales were up 11 percent year-over-year for the best result since 2005. Explorer, Edge, and Escape sales were up 27 percent, 17 percent, and 10 percent, respectively. This month’s sales marked an all-time record for the Escape.

Van sales were up 14 percent with a total of 16,090 vehicles sold, led by the all-new Transit, which was responsible for about half of these and led Ford commercial vans to a 15-year sales high.

Finally, Fusion and Mustang sales skyrocketed last July. The former was up 5 percent for its best July performance ever while the latter was up 29 percent, making it the most popular sports car in the country.
