FORD TRUCKS SET SALES PACE IN FEBRUARY

 DETROIT, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Truck sales set the pace for dealers in February in Ford Division's Detroit Region, which includes Michigan, northern Indiana and northwest Ohio.
 Truck sales rose 7.1 percent compared to February, 1992, while car sales remained even with previous year results.
 The Ford Ranger 4x4 pickup and the Ford F-Series 4x4 led truck sales with increases of 47 and 28 percent, respectively, said Timothy A. Boese, Ford Division regional sales manager. The Ranger 4x2 had increased sales of 27 percent for the month.
 Sales of the Ford Probe rose 147 percent on a comparative basis for February.
 "We're quite pleased with the February sales performance of our major new 1993 model products in the region, particularly the Probe and Ranger," said Boese.
 "There are many signs that the economic recovery is continuing. Although consumer confidence recently has weakened somewhat, due primarily to uncertainties about President Clinton's budget proposal, the automotive market appears to have momentum."
 February was the 15th consecutive month that Ford's total vehicle volume was up versus the prior year despite the severe winter weather over much of the nation. Total car volume also increased for the 14th straight month.
