Ranger and Everest twins hit 84 per cent of Ford Australia sales


July 26, 2021

The Ranger topped the charts in April, while the Everest did well with its best month yet.

The Ford Ranger and Everest twins accounted for a remarkable 84 per cent of the Blue Oval’s Australian sales in April, after the ute topped the overall chart and the SUV achieved a record month.

Ford Australia last month sold nearly 6000 units of its locally designed and engineered models, with nine other vehicles comprising the rest of the company’s 7146 April total.

The Ranger was Australia’s best-selling vehicle overall in April, with 5021 sales, while the Everest had its best month with 958 sales. The latter figure is almost double the Everest’s 500-per-month average achieved in 2020.

In year-to-date tracking, the Ranger and Everest have so far accounted for just over three-quarters of Ford Australia sales.

Other Ford models are having degrees of success too – contributing to a 42 per cent increase compared with this time last year.

The Puma compact SUV is too new for comparison with 2020, but sales of the mid-sized Escape have increased 27 per cent compared with this time last year when the previous-generation model was on sale.

The Ford Transit Custom is also performing well, up 80 per cent year to date, and the Fiesta ST hot-hatch is enjoying a strong 2021 so far.

Last month was Australia’s biggest April result yet, with 92,347 new-vehicle sales.
