Subaru is off the charts. The reports are in and the automaker has reached new heights with the best May sales the company has ever seen.
Continuing its 30-month streak of year-over-year growth, Subaru’s monthly sales increased by 11 percent over May of 2013. More than 44,000 vehicles were sold throughout the month, pushing year-to-date sales to 19 percent higher than sales reported during the same period last year.
The popular Forester and Outback models fueled this growth. The Forester sold 14,146 units, while 11,641 Outback vehicles were shipped to new homes. Not only that, but the currently Forester boasts a nearly 51-percent increase in year-to-date sales over last year.
“We are having another great year,” said H. William Cyphers, Subaru’s senior vice president of sales. “Every model line is in demand and our challenge is to keep supply levels high enough to keep the customers coming in our showrooms satisfied.”
With the introduction of the all-new Legacy and Outback models, we at Hassett Auto expect sales will continue to soar throughout the summer and the rest of the year. Now is a great time to join the Subaru family!
Hang in there—the wait is almost over. Ford has now begun accepting orders from dealers such as Hassett Auto for the all-new 2015 Mustang. Only about two months to go before fans of the iconic pony car can finally get their hands on the next generation.
Under the hood, the standard ‘stang will offer an all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost producing 305 horsepower, 300 pound-feet of torque, and best-in-class fuel efficiency. Upgrade options include a 3.7-liter V6 producing 300 hp and 270 lb-ft torque and a 5.0-liter V8 producing 420 hp and 390 lb-ft torque.
It also comes with an impressive array of standard features, including a rear view camera, push-button start, HID headlamps with signature lighting, eight airbags, fully independent front and rear suspension, and SYNC connectivity system with next-gen AppLink smartphone compatibility.
Available technology includes an 8-inch high-resolution navigation touchscreen, Blind Spot Information System, adaptive cruise control, Track Apps, and much more.
Ford has been considered America’s number one choice for truck for the past 37 years, a fact that they have solidified with the sale of their 500,000th 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost-equipped F-150. Merely three years old, the 3.5-liter engine has continued to grow as a favorite among consumers, thanks to its amazing fuel efficiency.
Over the course of the last 38 months, F-150 EcoBoost owners have saved an estimated 56.8 million gallons of gas annually, which is the equivalent of installing 139 wind turbines for energy. With 57% of Ford F-150 light-duty trucks being sold with V6 engines, there’s no denying that V6 engines are quickly becoming the top choice for pickup drivers across the country.
“We expect those numbers to hold for the rest of the year,” said Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “It really is amazing when you consider we are doing that with just two V6 engine choices—the 3.5-liter EcoBoost and the 3.5-liter TI-VCT engine. When we come out with the new 2015 F-150, we will offer three different V6 engines, so there is potential for further growth.”
Joining the 3.5-liter EcoBoost and Ti-VCT V6 engines will be a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine with standard Auto Start-Stop, built in Lima, Ohio. If you’re looking for a pickup that won’t drain your wallet while it’s towing your camper, make sure you stop by Hassett Automotive today for a test drive!
