Ford F-Series sell like hot cakes in 2012

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

According to Autoblog.com, the Ford F-Series was the best selling selling vehicle in 2012, accounting for 31 consecutive years of leading the automotive industry in annual sales. Autoblog recently released its list of the top selling cars in 2012 and there were no surprises as the top three vehicles sold in 2012 were also the top three vehicles sold in 2011.

In 2012, Ford sold 645,316 F-Series trucks, no where near the 900,000+ units sold in 2001, 2004 and 2005, but well above the No.2 selling Chevrolet Silverado, which sold 418,312 units in 2012. The Toyota Camry was surprisingly close to overtaking the Silverado at the No. 2 spot, as 404,886 units were sold in 2012, however, with the release of the all-new Silverado coming in 2013, this might have been Camry's year to overtake Chevrolet.

Ford sales strong in 2012
Ford reported earlier in the month that sales grew across all segments during 2012. The automaker said that  sales of cars were up 5 percent, utilities were up 7 percent and trucks were up 2 percent on a year-over-year comparison.

"Ford finished 2012 strong, with retail sales showing improved strength as more customers returned to dealer showrooms," said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. marketing, sales and service.
