Falcon Ute Sales!!

Well here's some great news! Looks like Holden's plans to kill our ute have failed.

Ford’s Falcon ute remains a smash hit with buyers, setting an impressive monthly sales mark in December on the way to a record 2001.
Ford sold 1596 Falcon utes in December, bringing total sales for 2001 to a record 16,955 units and making it the clear market leader in its segment.

The total represented a 24 per cent increase on the previous year’s record result of 13,698 sales.

Since 1998, when Ford sold just 6769 utes, sales have risen by a staggering 151 per cent.

Ford SUV and Light Commercial Marketing Manager, Kevin Lillie, said the Falcon ute had continued to dominate the market despite the introduction of a new model from its main competitor.

“Sales of the Falcon ute have in fact strengthened as the year has gone on, and the December result clearly illustrates that,” he said.

December Falcon ute sales were more than 500 units ahead of its nearest rival in the 2WD utility segment.

“While our chassis cab Falcon ute is proving very popular, we are particularly pleased with our sales in the sports-performance segment with XR ute, which increased by 69 per cent in 2001,” he said.

Yep, and to think I helped in acheiving that figure by twisting my bosses arm enough that he got me a Falcon 1 Tonner instead of a bloody Rodeo! And I can't begin to tell ya how happy I am.:s2: :s5

I will be contributing to the figures this year, so hopefully Ford will keep kicking Holden's butt with utes.
