Ford enjoyed yet another year of success as its cemented its place as the United States’ top brand for the fourth year in a row. Retail sales were up 14%, cars up 12%, utilities up 13%, and trucks up 17%, helping Ford to achieve its best December since 2005 and best sales year since 2006.
At the top of the charts stood the F-Series lineup, which extended a now eight-month streak of selling more than 60,000 units per month. Though truck loyalists may claim that competitors’ brands are superior to the F-150, Ford is the only brand that can claim to build not only the best-selling truck in America for the last 37 years, but also the best-selling vehicle for the last straight 32.
The Ford Fusion and Fiesta also posted strong performances, with sales up 27% and 25%, marking new individual records for December as well as for the entire year.
“December was a strong close to an even better year for Ford Motor Company,” said John Felice, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “We saw strong growth across the entire Ford lineup and made significant gains in the import-dominated coastal markets.
