For the second time in the last two months and only the third time in the last 12 months the Ford F-Series manages to sell upwards of 10,000 units in a single month in Canada at 10,281 sales, up an extremely solid 20% year-on-year. Both the Dodge RAM (+2%) and Dodge Grand Caravan (+20%) stay very solid in July but the hero of the month is without a doubt the Ford Escape boosted by the new model now in dealership and up 5 spots on June to #4, its highest ranking in the country in at least 2 years. The Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra are both kicked down one rank to #5 and #6 respectively.
Other great performers this month in Canada include the Dodge Journey up 6 spots to get back in the Top 10 for the first time since last January at #10 with 3,148 sales, the Ford Edge up to a fantastic 13th place vs. #20 year-to-date, the Jeep Wrangler up 4 ranks to #16, the Hyundai Tucson up 7 to #22, the Kia Sorento up 16 to #24 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee splitting its ranking in two compared to last month to #29. The Jeep Compass is up 39 spots to #52, the Mazda6 maintains itself way above its year-to-date at #57 vs. #95 while the BMW X1 is up 11 to #60.
Further down, the Scion FR-S stays within the Canadian Top 100 for its second month of sales in the country at #98 with 323 units while the Acura ILX is up to #109 at 285 sales.
