However for the first 11 months of 2007, Ford”s sales dropped 12.1 percent to 2,348,278 vehicles, compared with the first 11 months of 2006.
According to Ford, November numbers were driven by strong sales of the Ford Edge and the Lincoln MKX crossover. The new 2008 Ford Focus helped the Focus model post an 18 percent gain while Ford Fusion sedan was up 39 percent.
