Ford is celebrating another great sales month as August retail sales grew 20 percent and total sales increased 12 percent, making it the best August sales month for Ford since 2006.
Ford saw increases across the board. Car sales were up 15 percent, utilities were up 16 percent and trucks up 30 percent in August. Fords have especially been a huge hit lately in the coastal regions.
“Producing more Fusions at Flat Rock Assembly with its 1,400 new workers is a welcome opportunity, as Fusion showed great strength in August,” said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. marketing, sales and service. “Small cars and hybrids continue to outpace the market in the coastal regions of the U.S., with Ford brand retail small car sales growing at more than three times the rate of the U.S. small car industry.”
This August was the best sales month ever for the Ford Fusion with 24,653 units sold. Small car sales also had a good month with a 30% sales growth. The Fiesta was especially hot with a sales increase of 61%.
The Ford F-Series, meanwhile, just made it 25 consecutive months of sales increases with a 22% gain in August.
Friendly Ford is proud to contribute to another great sales month for Ford. All of these hot-selling Ford cars, trucks, and, SUVs are available now at Friendly Ford, located in Roselle, IL.
