Canada auto sales weaken in July, but Ford shines

reportonbusiness.com: globeinvestor.com - Canada auto sales weaken in July, but Ford shines: "Ford, the only Detroit auto company not supported by emergency government funding, sold 26,788 vehicles in Canada in July, up 47.4 percent from 18,171 in July 2008, but down slightly from sales in June 2009, the company said on Tuesday in a statement.

The result, driven by a 60 percent jump in sales of trucks such as the F-Series pickup and Escape SUV, means Ford Canada's year-to-date sales are now 2.3 percent ahead of last year's pace."
