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.
