Canada’s most popular automobile manufacturer and its best-selling brand, the top-ranked auto brand in Canada, posted a significant year-over-year improvement in September 2013. F-Series trucks rose 27%, good enough for the truck lineup’s best ever September.
The only other manufacturer capable of selling as often as Ford Canada, the Chrysler Group, rose 1.5% in September thanks to rising Ram sales, no thanks to Jeep or Fiat.
Overall, the industry rose by nearly 6000 sales, or around 4%. New automobile sales in Canada are up more than 3% so far this year, an increase of 45,000 units.
