Ford sales up 11%

DETROIT (AP) — BY THE NUMBERS: Ford Motor Co. sold 175,220 cars and trucks in the U.S. in August, up 11 percent from 157,503 in the same month a year ago.

TOP SELLER: The F-Series pickup rose 2 percent to 48,795.

HOT MODELS: Ford Explorer sales quadrupled to 9,901. The new Explorer was released late last year. Sales of the Fiesta subcompact, another relative newcomer, increased 76 percent from a year ago.

Sales of the Crown Victoria sedan more than doubled as taxi companies and police departments scrambled to get cars before Ford ceases production.
