Here at Sanderson Ford, we have been quite aware of the demand for Ford vehicles. We can hardly keep our new Ford on the lot! Of course, that doesn’t make the latest announcement from Ford any less surprising and welcome.
According to a Ford press release, 1,353,048 Ford vehicles have been sold during the first half of the year. That makes the last six months the best first half of the year for Ford sales since 2006!One major boost to vehicle sales for the first half of the year comes in the form of Ford’s truck lineup. Ford reports that 531,500 of its trucks have been sold since the beginning of the year. Ford’s SUV sector also experienced some incredibly high sales, with 395,116 total units sold.
“Strong customer demand has helped us continue growing our truck leadership position, further widening the gap with our nearest competitor versus last year,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president of U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “Consumer demand for Ford SUVs also continues to surge to all-time highs, allowing us to introduce new levels of capability, versatility and technology to a whole new generation of SUV fans.”
