Sales Numbers Show Best November for Ford in Years

For the month of November, the Ford Motor Company’s sales totaled 187,000 vehicles. Several of the brand’s models posted monthly sales numbers we haven’t seen in a long time.

The Ford Mustang, redesigned for 2015 and its golden anniversary year, sold 8,728 vehicles. That’s the best November sales the model has experienced since 2006.

“Our all-new Mustang is moving quickly off dealer lots,” said John Felice, Ford’s vice president of US Marketing, Sales, and Service. “Mustang has had its best November sales in eight years and is turning in just eight days on dealer lots, on average.”

Adding to the Mustang’s success, more than 25,500 units of the Ford Escape were sold, setting a new record for the SUV’s best ever November sales. In addition, sales of the Explorer were recorded at 14,949, marking the model’s greatest results in 10 years.

We at Cambridge Classic Ford are excited to continue this trend of record-setting sales as we come to the year’s end and begin to look toward 2015. If you missed out on contributing to the best November for Ford, help give the brand its best December sales by finding your perfect model.
