Ford Trucks Post Double-Digit Gains For July, Lincoln Navigator Sales Jump 65 Percent


Ford announced its sales for July, and while overall sales were down slightly since last year, the Dearborn-based automaker sold 194,026 vehicles last month, down 3.1 percent compared to July of 2017. However, the company saw strong sales in trucks, vans, and SUVs.

Ford trucks posted double-digit gains, up more than 10 percent compared to last year. Ford’s flagship truck group, the F-Series, marked its 15th consecutive month of year-over-year increases.

“Ford pickups and vans dominated last month, with overall trucks posting an increase of 10 percent,” says Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president of U.S. marketing, sales, and service. “Combined pickup, van, and SUVs totaled 153,402 vehicle sales, for a 4.8 percent gain. We have now sold more than 1.1 million trucks and SUVs this year.”

One of Ford’s best-selling SUVs is the Lincoln Navigator.

“Lincoln Navigator continues to be the country’s hottest new product,” says LaNeve. “With sales expanding in every region of the United State.”

Retail sales of Navigator were up 65 percent last month.

Ford also saw a 25.7 percent increase in fleet sales, however, the numbers have more to do with order timing than organic growth.
