February Might Have Been Cold, but it was a Hot Month for Ford Sales
Last month, Ford’s U.S. dealers sold a total of 217,192 vehicles. That translates to a 20-percent increase for the month relative to February 2015.
True, both of those are impressive figures. So are these: sales of cars shot up by six percent and the figures for Blue Oval trucks climbed by five percent. According to Ford, “F-Series sales were strong, too, with 60,697 vehicles sold – a 10-percent increase – marking Ford’s best February for F-Series in a decade.” Even the Transit and the Lincoln brand enjoyed substantial double-digit February upswings.
However, Ford’s SUV sales last month were the best they’ve ever been in February – ever. The Blue Oval unloaded a total of 65,016 of them, 28 percent more than it did last February. The Edge was the biggest factor in that spike; its sales were up 91 percent. The Explorer contributed an 18 percent increase. The Escape‘s sales increase wasn’t far behind at 14 percent.
