Ford Truck and SUV Sales for September Hit 11-Year High

Ford F-150

Ford truck and SUV sales have always been a major part of Ford’s economy, and the numbers from September 2015 are proof as to why.

Last month, Ford truck and SUV sales hit an 11-year high for the month of September. Truck sales went up by 23.2%, adding to the 11.3% jump from August. Plus, Ford Escape SUV sales also got a 31.1% boost, which is an impressively hefty number to report. Across the board SUV sales have been up, so it’s good to see that Ford is keeping up with the trend.

Not only did Ford sell more units than expected last month, but the models being purchased were the more highly priced items; in September, the average transaction price increased by 0.3%. That might not sound like the biggest leap, but this is a substantial and telling number toward Ford’s upward momentum.  This not only shows Ford’s increased sales, but the upward trend of the economy for new vehicle sales.

Trucks account for about 41% of Ford’s total sales; so needless to say, Ford is doing very well for itself with its leading sales coming from its truck sales.  And with a truck like the 2015 Ford F-150, it’s no surprise that sales are doing well.  We can’t wait to see what the 2016 Ford F-150 will bring here at Highway Ford!

Haunted New Orleans

These walking tours are great for history lovers and thrill seekers alike. Check out Haunted History Tours or one of the many other groups in New Orleans for your next trip.

Myrtles Plantation

Down in St. Francisville sits the eerie Myrtles Plantation, “one of America’s most haunted homes.” Built around 1796, this house is about as old as a building can be in America. It’s full of horrible history and paranormal occurrences, and it’s ready for you to pay a visit!

St. Louis Cemetery No. 1

Like the rest of New Orleans, St. Louis Cemetery is one of the most haunted places in the country, with a long history of hauntings and the supernatural. From its voodoo connections to its long list of questionable characters, this cemetery is guaranteed to leave you with a chill in your bones.

We think this is the best of haunted Louisiana, but of course there’s more to do and see out there!   Tell us of some of the best Haunted places you’ve been to here at Highway Ford!
