While the US auto industry saw a down month in July, Ford Motor Company of Canada saw no such symptoms of slowing. In fact, last month saw Ford’s best July sales on record, led by big months for trucks and vans.

Ford and Lincoln sales in July totaled 29,778 vehicles, up 9.6% year-over-year from the 27,182 vehicles sold in July 2015. The tally brings Ford of Canada’s cumulative sales through seven months to 179,720 vehicles, up 11.4% from the 161,329 vehicles sold through July 2015.

“Record sales in July further cements Ford as the number one automotive brand in Canada,” said Dianne Craig, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. “Canadians continue to choose Ford vehicles over the competition, with strength across the lineup in July—from Ford Mustang, to Ford Escape, to another monthly sales record for Ford F-Series.”

In addition to the July sales record for the F-Series—spurred by 21% growth—the F-150 saw a 25% year-over-year increase and the Transit Van saw a 21% year-over-year-increase, both also leading to July records.
