Ford’s Best July Results in 8 Years!


Sales increased dramatically during the month of July, especially for Ford’s Fusion, Escape, and F Series vehicles. This increase of 10 percent created a sale of 212,236 vehicles, proving this July to be the best July in 8 years!

“July proved to be a very good month for Ford and Lincoln with positive gains across the board in all the major segments. Escape and Fusion were big contributors to our sales increases, with both setting July sales records. F-Series again topped the 60,000-vehicle sales mark and we’re seeing great initial demand for our launch vehicles, such as the Transit Connect, Transit Connect Wagon and the Lincoln MKC as availability builds,” said Ford’s head of U.S. marketing and sales John Felice. 

Ford Fusion set an all-time monthly sales record in July with 23,942 cars sold, a gain of 17 percent. The West region of the United States continues to drive Fusion sales higher, with a 24 percent retail increase relative to a 22 percent increase nationally.

Ford Fusion sold a total of 23,942 cars, resulting in a monthly sales record for July. A 32 percent sales increase also took place for Ford Explorers, resulting in 16,797 vehicles to be sold. This was the best July since 2005, and a 19 percent increase in sales for Ford Escapes resulted in an all-time sales record for July. Ford F-Series trucks had 63,240 sales, even though Ford’s F-Series incentives were the lowest of any of the three largest truck manufacturers.
