DEARBORN — Ford Motor Co. U.S. sales are up 7 percent this year, with 1.14 million vehicles sold. June sales also increased 7 percent from last year, with 207,759 vehicles sold.

Ford sales are increasing across the company's lineup – with cars up 3 percent, utilities up 9 percent and trucks up 9 percent year to date.

In June, the Ford Escape set an any-month record — with sales up 28 percent — while the Ford Fusion set a record for June. Ford Explorer sales were up 35 percent from last year, and F-Series sales are up 11 percent and topped 50,000 for the first June in five years.

"The new 2013 Escape also is off to a very strong start, with vehicles selling on dealer lots in less than five days — even topping the strong start of the new Explorer in 2010."
