Contrary to previous reports of the need to close and retool some plants for the new aluminum 2015 Ford F-150, the Ford F-Series sales are still on the rise. Ford posted the best sales numbers in February 2014 that it has seen in 8 years.
America’s best-selling truck for the past 37 years has continued to make moves on the market, despite the rumors that the necessity to close some plants to get them ready for the 2015 Ford F-150 would slow the F-Series sales down for awhile. Not only has that not happened, but sales will continue to increase when the 2015 Ford F-150 will be added to the numbers later this year.
John Felice, Ford vice president, U.S. marketing, sales and service, gave his reasoning for the highest February sales in 8 years. “Sales surged in the final week, providing us momentum after a slow start to the month. Ford Fusion continued its strong retail sales performance in the West, outpacing the mid-size sedan segment. F-Series and Lincoln also continued to perform well.”
At Shults Ford of Harmarville, we are proud to be the home of the best-selling truck in America, and even though some plants have closed to get ready for the 2015 Ford F-150, the continued increase in Ford F-Series sales goes to show what a truly amazing truck the F-150 really is.
