Ford Sees Best February Sales in Over a Decade

February may be the shortest month of the year, but it was a pretty fantastic month for Ford. Ford saw its best February sales since 2005 with sales up 20% over last year. Total sales for the month clocked in at 217,192 vehicles.

Best February Sales

The biggest sales leaders were Ford SUVs, with sales up 33%. Cars and trucks also gained 6% and 5% respectively.

“We saw a solid industry last month and a strong month for Ford, as customer demand for our newest vehicles – including new high-end series on Explorer and Edge – helped Ford increase its average transaction prices at almost double the industry average,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service, in a statement. “Offering more high-end options for truck and SUV customers and having the capability fleet buyers value as they are reinvesting in their fleets are strengthening our business.”

Another remarkable segment for Ford in February was vans. It sold 11,496 Transit vans last month, which was a 70% increase over last year. It was also Ford’s best February for van sales since 1979! That is something to celebrate.

Here at Pegues Hurst Ford, we are excited by Ford’s record setting sales and can’t wait to see what the rest of 2016 will bring.
