The Ford Motor Co. predicts it will again be the best-selling vehicle brand in the United States in 2013. Outselling Toyota by more than 396,000 units, this will be the fourth consecutive year Ford brings home the title.
“The great news is that we are not overly reliant on any one segment – we’re seeing double-digit sales growth in cars, trucks and utilities,” said John Felice, vice president, U.S. marketing, sales and service. “The Ford brand has had more retail share growth than any other brand in the country, with our most significant gains coming from import-dominated coastal markets. With 16 launches next year, we’re looking to keep our sales momentum going.”
Strong retail sales and gains across the United States contributed to another great year for the Ford Motor Co. Retails sales are up 15% year-to-date, and growth occurred across the model lineup of cars, utilities, trucks and electric vehicles. Ford also saw strong growth in the west and southwestern United States.
Overall retail sales are expected to surpass 1.7 million vehicles in 2013 — the brand’s best retail performance in six years. Passenger car retail sales will surpass 600,000 vehicles for the first time since 2000.
The redesigned 2013 Ford Fusion has its best year ever, and the Ford Fiesta set a new sale record in 2013. Overall, Ford took the utility sales crown in 2013. The Ford Escape had its best sales year of all time. Sales of the Ford Explorer are up more than 15%, making it the best selling midsized vehicle for 2013.
