Listening to the call right now...sounds like Focus production was way up in August, so that should address inventory issues in the coming months.

FWIW, Flex broke the hallowed 2,000/mo barrier. :lol:

And I'm willing to bet that we see a continuation of the "get 'em while they last" sales of the remaining :redcard: vehicles.

CURRENT VEHICLES
2005 Buick Rainier CXL V8, 158K (mine)
2013 Ford Fusion Titanium, 48k (wife's)

PREVIOUS VEHICLES

1999 Nissan Maxima SE Limited, 188K (wife's; donated)

2001 Pontiac Bonneville SLE, 126K (the Cruise Missile; started getting gremlins, plus we outgrew it)

1996 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD, 111-160K+ (stupid odometer) (sold to make room for the Bonnie)
1995 Dodge Intrepid (wife's; almost everything that could go wrong did; towed away stealthily)

FUTURE VEHICLES?

Some other sort of three-row family hauler (for us)

6th-gen Ford Mustang GT Coupe? (for me)

30K Camrys?? What the deuce??

Pretty surprised the Soul is selling as well as it is too. It's pretty polarizing. And Versa, well, discussed numerous times, but it's really a B-segment vehicle in name only.

I wanted to test drive a Flex w/EcoBoost a couple of weeks ago and there was not a single one in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area. In Tarrant County (Fort Worth, Arlington, etc.), there were only 3 Flex's, total. How can you sell something when there is no selection available?

Just noticing that for August, sales of Explorer 9,901 and Flex 2,823 add up to around 12,700 sales.
If you look at all D3 products in Ford and Lincoln, that totals to around 19,500 products for the month
most of those sales have ATP well above $30,000. - not bad for a platform that is supposedly a failure,

We should be worried about how many bought the competition because they couldn't find a Focus on the lot.

Dude. If you're going to put Buick on the luxury car chart, you might as well put Ford on there.

We go through this every month... :reading:

The data is there for all entry level and mainstream luxury brands (Buick, Acura, hell, I try to include Volvo when they bother to post results), and the reader can interpret the information however they like. "Just the facts", so to speak. :shades:

Kind of ironic that Ford is killing off a vehicle that saw a 50% (Ranger) increase for the same month a year ago on a vehicle that has not had an update in over a decade. With high gas prices Ford is going to Lose a lot of business to competitors over this one.....

entry level and mainstream luxury brands (Buick, Acura, hell, I try to include Volvo when they bother to post results)

Here's my rule of thumb: if cloth seats are standard on *any* vehicle in the lineup, it's not a luxury brand.

And there are no 'entry level' luxury brands.
