Led by Ford F-Series, truck sales momentum continues into November

OAKVILLE, Ontario, December 3, 2007 – November proved to be another winning month for Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited, where truck sales increased three per cent. Not to be outdone, Ford cars also saw a rise in sales in November – namely the newly redesigned Ford Focus and Ford Taurus.

* Ford Taurus sales rise 14% in November
* Ford Ranger sales increase 33% and achieve best November on record
* Ford SUV sales are up 11%

"Our showrooms are bustling with pre-holiday traffic," said Bill Osborne, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited. "The 'Get in and Drive' year-end clearance has given Canadians even more reason to take a second look at the great products Ford has to offer.

Last month, Ford of Canada's overall sales decreased 8.3 per cent to 15,971 units. Total truck sales were up 2.7 per cent at 12,039 units and total car sales of 3,932 units mark a 30.9 per cent decline compared to last November.
