Among the products introduced last fall by Ford Motor Co., the Mustang continues to post impressive gains despite limited availability. In June, Mustang sales were 14,470, up 80% from a year ago. In the first half, Mustang sales totaled 96,011, up 31%.

Ford Motor Co. posted its first monthly sales increase of 2005. In June, U.S. customers purchased or leased 289,449 cars and trucks from Ford, Mercury, Lincoln, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo dealers, up 1% compared with a year ago. Car sales totaled 100,438, up 9% from last June. This was the largest increase in car sales since December 2002. In the first half, sales of passenger cars were up 1%.

"We're pleased with the overall result this month," said Steve Lyons, Ford group vice president North America Marketing, Sales and Service. "On the car side, we are benefiting from the new products we introduced late last year. We expect to build on this momentum when the new Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan, and Lincoln Zephyr debut this fall."

The company's new fullsize sedans continued to post strong sales. The Ford Five Hundred and Mercury Montego combined for 10,823 sales in June with 85% delivered to retail customers. The Ford Freestyle crossover utility posted it best sales month so far (6,820) bringing combined sales for all three Chicago products to 17,643. First half sales for these products totaled 96,424. Among trucks, the company continued to see higher sales among crossover utility vehicles. Combined sales for the Ford Freestyle, Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner, and Volvo's XC70 and XC90 were 28,342, up 31% compared with a year ago. Combined sales for traditional SUVs were off 3% in June.

Ford's F-Series truck posted June sales of 72,485, down 3% from a year ago. The largest declines in the truck segment were minivans (where Ford's Freestar and Mercury Monterey combined for a decline of 50%) and compact pickups (Ford Ranger sales were down 26%).

Goes to further illustrate the point that 200 HP is seemingly enough for this car at the moment.

The 500 really is a nice machine....
