May sales figures released by Ford Motor Company showed Escape sales are nearly 10% higher in May, compared to last year and set an all-time monthly record for the very popular SUV. It was the first time that sales of the Escape topped 30,000 in one month – only 104 units shy of reaching 32,000 last month.
Sales of Ford’s Fusion reached nearly 34,000 units in May, which was a 15% increase over last May’s result. That, too, was an all-time monthly record for the midsize sedan. Ford’s Fusion continues to be a hot option on the West Coast, where its sales drove a 42% increase in regional sales.
Ford’s Escape and Fusion both posting all-time monthly records for the company overshadowed an excellent performance from the Explorer, America’s best-selling midsize sport utility vehicle, which posted its best sales month in nearly a decade. Sales of the Explorer jumped 21% in May compared to the same time last year, topping 20,000 units sold.
