DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Ford Motor Company’s August U.S. retails sales grew by 20-percent with total sales up by twelve-percent.

It marks the automaker’s best monthly retail performance since August of 2006.  Car sales were up 15-percent, utilities were up 16-percent, and trucks were up 30-percent.

"Producing more Fusions at Flat Rock Assembly with its 1,400 new workers is a welcome opportunity, as Fusion showed great strength in August," says Ford Vice President Ken Czubay.

Czubay says that Ford’s small cars and hybrids continue to outpace the market in the nation’s coastal regions with Ford brand retail small car sales growing at more than three times the rate of the U.S. small car industry.
