Ford U.S. sales in 2013
Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) also announced that sales in the U.S. jumped 11% in 2013 to around 2.5 million, which is a six-year high. This is largely due to a strong economy that led to an increase in pick-up truck sales.
Ford sold 763,402 F-Series pickups in 2013, which is up 18% over 2012. Every one out of three vehicles that Ford sold in the U.S. was a F-Series.
Ford sold a record number of Fusion sedans, Escape SUVs, and Fiesta subcompacts. However, the sales of the Lincoln luxury brand was flat for the year. The Lincoln MKZ sedan sales were up 15%, but other Lincoln vehicles saw a loss in sales.
