July Rebound Month For U.S. Auto Sales

DETROIT, Aug. 2 (UPI) — U.S. auto companies reported sales rebounded in July, as Chrysler led the group with a 20 percent jump compared to July 2010, the company said.

Ford Motor Co. sales rose 8.9 percent. For General Motors, sales were up 7.6 percent compared to a year ago, The Detroit News said Tuesday.

“In a market that remains tougher than a cheap steak, we were able to produce our highest retail sales in more than three years,” Chrysler’s head of U.S. sales and the Dodge brand Reid Bigland said.

Car sales were up 28 percent for Chrysler, while truck sales were up 18 percent from July 2010. For the Jeep Compass, sales soared 240 percent compared to the same month a year earlier.

Ford vice president in charge of U.S. marketing, sales and service Ken Czubay said, the “Fiesta, Focus and Fusion put Ford back in the car business.” Sales also grew 66 percent for the Ford Escape and 108 percent for the Ford Explorer.

The Chevrolet Cruze has sold 20,000 or more units for four months running for GM. In June, the vehicle was the best selling car in the country.
