‘All-new’ Ford range hits the sales top spot

Posted on 19 Aug 2009

Nearing the end of the new 09 registration month, Jennings Ford has topped the 100 mark at its dealerships in Sunderland and Gateshead.

Staff at the Riverside Road and Eslington Park dealerships have each taken a total of 100 orders on new Ford models for this year’s first plate change month.

The success is mainly down to Ford’s ‘all-new’ range, which has also contributed towards a successful first quarter.

David Walker, general sales manager at the Sunderland dealership, said;

“Despite the current economic climate, sales have remained steady at the dealership, which is mainly down to customers being attracted to competitive offers across the whole range, in particular the new Focus and the ‘all-new’ Fiesta and Ka range.”

David added; “Nearing the end of what is renowned for being the busiest sales month in the motor industry, we have taken orders on 100 models for customers, which is an extremely positive result during a period of economic uncertainty.”

Continuing to maintain its domination of the super-mini-market, the seventh generation of the Ford Fiesta offers improved space, better specification, greater safety and Ford’s smart Kinetic design styling, as seen on the all-new Ka and Mondeo.

Customers can choose from 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 petrol and diesel engine sizes, three or five-door body styles, 15 colour variations and seven equipment levels including, the Studio, Style, Style+, Zetec, Zetec S, Titanium and ECOnetic, all of which are available with five-speed manual transmission.

Meanwhile, the fun and funky baby model of the Ford family, the ‘all-new’ Ford Ka, is available in four equipment levels, including the Studio, Style, Style+ and Zetec models and is currently available in either a 1.2-litre petrol engine size or a 1.3-litre diesel engine.

Ka crazy customers wanting to personalise their new ‘pride and joy’ have also been taking advantage of a tempting array of option packs with differing body graphics, wheel combinations and interior trim. Three factory-fitted packs, based on three different themes, including Ka Digital, Ka Tattoo and the Ka Grand Prix, have been developed offering a combination of exciting interior and exterior designs.

Other vehicles in the Ford range include the Focus, Focus Coupé Cabriolet, Fusion, Mondeo, C-Max, Galaxy and S-MAX.
