Ford F-150, Commercial Vehicles Post Best-Ever July Results for Ford Canada
A best-ever July result from the F-150 and commercial vehicles as a whole guided Ford Motor Company of Canada to a 0.9 percent year-over-year increase in monthly sales. Ford delivered a total of 27,918 vehicles in July, including 2,858 cars (down 24.7 percent) and 25,060 trucks, SUVs, and commercial vehicles (up 5 percent).
“F-150 is the backbone of the Ford brand, and Canadians continue to be drawn to the breadth of capability and innovation it offers,” said Mark Buzzell, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company of Canada. “We listen carefully to our truck customers, who aren’t afraid to let us know what they’re looking for. For example, based on consumer feedback, we launched the first-ever F-150 diesel earlier this year.”
