Ford Motor Co. says its U.S. sales rose 13 percent in May on strong demand for its F-Series pickups and SUVs.

F-Series sales rose 29 percent over last May. Ford says demand
for trucks has followed an increase in new home construction since
the start of this year.

Sales of the Transit Connect commercial van were also up 53
percent over last year. Sales of the Edge crossover rose 24
percent.

Car sales saw smaller gains. Sales of the Focus small car were
up 11 percent.

One bright spot in Ford's car lineup was the Mustang, which saw
a 58-percent increase as the summer driving season begins.
