For the first time in three years, Ford of Canada has recognized three consecutive months of market-share growth, thanks to an all-around effort by Ford's many brands and models. The Ford Escape maintains its crown as the best-selling small SUV in Canada, while recognizing a sales increase of 7% in January.

The Canadian-built Ford Flex, which was awarded the title of "Best New CUV" for the price range of $35,000 to $60,000 by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada, saw its best month of sales since its launch in June 2008. Sales of the F-150 also helped Ford get through January. Other notable sales figure increases includes the 22% increase of the Mercury Grand Marquis and the 300% increase of the Lincoln Town Car.

Though Ford of Canada's overall sales numbers are down by 14.1% across the board compared to last year, Ford expects to be well positioned for the future thanks to the upcoming introductions of seven new vehicles over the next six months.
