The US automaker said its main products, pickup truck Ranger, premium large SUV Explorer and commercial van Transit remained top sellers in their respective segments.

The strong performance was capped by all-time high retail sales in March of 2,501 units, a 32 per cent year-on-year increase.

“The launch of Ranger, Raptor and Everest gave our sales an additional boost heading into the year-end, and that momentum carried through into the first quarter and helped drive our overall performance,” Phạm Văn Dũng, managing director of Ford Vietnam, said.

The Ranger’s sales edged up to 2,786, the recently launched new Everest accounted for sales of 1,535 units and Transit saw sales of 1,208 vehicles.
