FORD DEALERS REPORT STRONG 1992 SALES

 DETROIT, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford (NYSE: F) dealers in the Detroit Region -- which includes Michigan, Northern Indiana and Northwest Ohio -- ended 1992 with double-digit increases in car and truck sales for the year.
 Car sales rose 13.3 percent above 1991 levels, while truck sales climbed 18.5 percent. Ford dealers in the Detroit Region sold 62,343 cars and 68,904 trucks in 1992.
 Timothy A. Boese, Ford Division regional sales manager, said December car sales increased 98.4 percent over the comparable 1991 period, paced by the Ford Taurus with a whopping 425 percent increase and the Ford Probe with a 239 percent gain. Truck sales for December declined 5.7 percent against strong 1991 monthly totals.
 "The Detroit Region led the nation in Taurus sales during the last quarter of the year, helping Taurus beat the Honda Accord as America's best-selling car for 1992," he said.
 "The market's strength in recent months is encouraging, especially the return of individual consumers to the car market," Boese explained. "Ford was the only major manufacturer, domestic or foreign, to expand both car and truck market share. And our total vehicle market share rose by more than 1.5 percentage points, reaching its highest level since 1978."
