Ford SUV Sales Set New Record In January

OAKVILLE, Ont., February 3, 2003 – Sales of Ford and Lincoln SUVs hit an all-time January record at 3,209 units – a 24 per cent increase from the same month last year – and Lincoln brand sales increased 34 per cent.

Overall, consumers in Canada purchased 15,712 new Ford and Lincoln vehicles in January, a 6.7 per cent decrease from the same month last year. Truck sales fell 3.2 per cent to 11,011 units while car sales dropped 14.1 per cent to 4,701 units.

"The popularity of SUVs continues to grow in Canada. People here require vehicles to be flexible, functional, with all-weather capabilities, and many find that combination in our class-leading SUVs," said Torrey Galida, vice president of marketing, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited.
