Ford Maintains as Canada’s Top Brand in September
Ford Motor Company was once again the best-selling brand in Canada in September, delivering a total of 26,535 vehicles. Through nine months, Ford is the country’s top brand, a feat achieved thanks in large part to its F-Series and SUVs.
“Consumers are moving towards vehicles that provide more versatility, and Ford is well positioned for this shift with Canada’s top-selling lineup of trucks and utility vehicles,” said Mark Buzzell, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company of Canada. “We’re in the midst of enhancing our product portfolio to provide Canadians with even more choice and to better address the attributes they’ve told us they value most.”
