Ford’s June Sales Overcome Chevrolet Shots

Ford’s June Sales

Chevrolet may have aired several advertisements comparing the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado but they don’t seem to have had much effect. In fact, the ads seemed to have backfired on their creators if the latest sales numbers are anything to go by. Ford’s June Sales proved that the original American brand still has what it takes to overcome any obstacle.

Despite the ad that claimed the Silverado’s steel bed is far tougher than the F-150’s aluminum bed, Ford F-150 sales increased by a massive 28% in June. That brings the total number of F-Series pickups sold last month to over 70,000.

While Chevrolet created the ads to hit Ford hard, the Silverado actually saw a 3.7% decline in sales compared to the same time last year. That puts the Chevrolet Silverado’s sales at just under 50,000 units.

In addition to the Ford F-150’s increase, the Ford Escape saw a 20% increase in sales. Those two, plus a few other crossovers and SUVs, brought Ford’s June sales to a 6.4% increase with over 240,000 vehicles sold. Ford sold 225,647 vehicles in June 2015.

On top of Ford’s success, Lincoln, Ford’s luxury brand, saw a 5.8% increase in sales as well.

We here at Highway Ford are glad to see true quality and strength overwhelming the competition!

Thanks to Escape, Explorer, and Fusion, Ford’s July Sales Numbers Soar

There have been no summer doldrums for the Ford Motor Company, as the brand moved 212,236 vehicles in just the month of July alone. That number was good enough for a 10% increase in sales over last year’s numbers, which also made this the best July for the Blue Oval in eight years. Ford sales in the month were led by SUVs like the Escape and Explorer as well as a strong performance from the Fusion midsize sedan.

“July proved to be a very good month for Ford and Lincoln with positive gains across the board in all the major segments,” said John Felice, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “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.”

We’re seeing lots of that same demand here at Highway Ford, too, so make sure to come see us as soon as you can. As you can tell, based on those crazy sales numbers, these cars don’t sit on our lots for long. So come see us today to find the perfect Ford car, truck or SUV for you and your family today!
