DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Ford Motor Company's U.S. sales grew 14-percent in May, marking the best May retail sales since 2005.

Fusion and Escape have set monthly sales records for four straight months with the Escape posting its best-ever sales month since being introduced 13 years ago.  F-series sales hit their highest number in more than six years.  Lincoln MKZ numbers were up 43-percent over last May.

For the third quarter of this year Ford plans to boost overall North American production by ten-percent over the third quarter of 2012.
