The 2013 Ford SVT Raptor F150

Ford, Lincoln both show growth in June 2012

While Ford Motor Company was not one of the strongest automakers in June 2012 in terms of growth rate - trailing Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Chrysler and GM – it was still a fairly strong month for the Blue Oval as both of their brands showed positive growth last month.

Ford Motor Company as a whole “only” posted a gain of 7% last month which ranked them towards the bottom of the list in terms of growth by major automotive groups but that is largely due to the fact that FoMoCo was in better shape at this time last year than many other automakers (especially Toyota, Nissan and Honda). The Motor Company sold over 207,000 vehicles last month, ranking them second to only GM and putting them almost 30,000 units above 3rd place Toyota. Through the first six months of 2012, Ford Motor Company has sold 1,143,623 cars, trucks and utility vehicles (only 41,962 of which are Lincoln models), putting them 6.6% ahead of where they were after the first half of 2011.
