Ford Motor Company posts negative growth in September 2012

Ford Motor Company had a rough month in September 2012 with both of their US brands showing negative growth with a total decline of 0.1% - allowing Toyota to move within some 3,000 units of passing FoMoCo for the second spot in the American auto market in terms of sales volume.

While the immediate news for Ford Motor Company of both brands posting negative year over year growth in September 2012 looks bad, there were some bright points for Ford and for Lincoln – there is still the ongoing promise that good things are a-comin’.

“As more buyers look for new vehicles across the country, Ford is ready with our strongest lineup ever of fuel-efficient cars, utilities and full-size pickups,” said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “Fuel economy remains one of the most important features customers want most today, and Ford is answering the call with five vehicles that deliver 40 mpg or better – with another three on the way by year-end.”
