Holy smokes! 25k Escapes? Maybe Dean's right, the incentives might be a bit too generous. And 68k F-Series? :happy feet:

Looks like Focus is settling in at the 15k/month range.

Lincoln managed to edge up for the month year-over-year and is only down .4% versus 2010. Not terribly bad, considering. MKX is also their top seller for the first time in a while.

Pretty solid month!

Fiesta has been down the past couple of months. Wonder why?

Explorer had a great month, as did most of the trucks.

Solid month for Lincoln too, even with the complete and utter lack of new product. MKZ and MKX are becoming two pretty solid marques to build the brand on.

There's finally some viable competition, besides the Fit? The dreadful Aveo's been replaced by the capable Sonic, Yaris is new, and the Accent/Rio are fresh on the lots and quite nice. This is a small segment and the Fiesta's now among the oldest products in it. Hopefully things pick back up with the MCE and the ST model's halo effect.

In December, Ford brand sales were 201,737, that is truly amazing......

Ford sold 68,278 F-Series pickups in December, representing its best December sales results since 2006.
For the year, F-Series sales totaled 584,917 trucks, making it the only vehicle to break the 500,000 vehicle sales mark last year.


F Trucks came so close to 600,000 sales, 68,000 sales in December is a remarkable achievement and bodes well for 2012..

Lincoln 8,403
Total 210,140

Chevrolet 161,158

“The year finished on a high note, with industry sales momentum strengthening as the year came to a close,” said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “We saw Ford sales strengthen as well, posting our best December retail sales month since 2005 and closing the year as America’s best-selling brand.

Looks like a lot of 'Mercury customers' swtiched to Ford brand with no problem. The prediction that Ford would lose sales from cutting Merc were disproved.

Ranger sales up 27% year over year. It will be interesting to see where former Ranger customers go. I would imagine that cheaper trim lines of F-150 and TC will pick up some of the former Ranger sales. Hopefully, the TC will be upgraded soon and built here for North America along with the Transit. Looking at 2011 Ford sales overall, the big winners seem to be pickup trucks and small to mid sized utilities. I wish small cars had done better, but it is what it is. For 2012, I would like to see Ford do better in small car sales and pass Honda and Toyota in sales in that segment.

Ford Apple moment in time when profits were huge

Creme de la creme


Mk 1 RWD Ford Escort RS a car that inspires the heart & soul


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaMelv_Aj-M


1968 was a great year for Ford Mo Co 20,000,000 Millions AAA+ Escort car sales that followed off the back off its "Creme de la creme" reputation

Escorts 20,000,000 Millions sales numbers that have never been bettered by any other "F O R D" car

Ford Escort Worlds best selling car 7 times in a row

Mk1 Escort Fords Apple moment in time - AAA+ Apple shares $2 to $500 the way to go, produce products with heart & soul that inspires gets economic growth.


S&P Moody AAA+ rated profit generator Cortina 193,784 UK sales 16,148 a month as it faced the axe, those were the days my friend l thought they would never end as Mary Hopkins once sung, 193,784 RWD Cortina UK sales a year would never end.

20,428 FWD Mondeo's sales a year is as good as it gets these days or 1,702 a month in 2011.


Building same Junk status C rated heartless no soul Mondeo same constant boredom won't lead to growth in Europe, it will just create a constant depression.

Not in the UK top 10 Mondeo is dead in the UK according to the Daily Mail LINK. But alive on BON.

RWD BMW 3 Series made No6 in 2011 UK sales chart


Mondeo 2010

30,111 yearly sales, 2,500 average per month in 2010

27,704 diesel Mondeo 2010 sales

2,411 gasoline Mondeo 2010 sales

27,002 Mondeo sales in the low no profit making fleet dumping/Rental sales

(Nick says no profits markets, high depreciation & residuals),

3,109 Private retail Mundane Mondeo buyers



2012 FOE Big losses, GM Europe will report big huge losses the way to go - boring products & boring dull kinetic styling not giving us the products we want? Something thats small fun to drive RWD, a classic styled car a car that inspirers with soul, not never ever changing eternal boredom on 4 wheels.


Just 1 awesome RWD From Ford in Europe, will end Greeks bailouts, end lost AAA ratings, get folk buying cars again get the worlds economy movin again, put RWD fun rather than FWD monotony back on Europes roads , use classic car styling again, rather than appliance. make cars that are fun exciting & real blast to drive again

.

Make something just one RWD car worth buying getting out of bed in the morning to work for, aspire to own, something worth spending money on, rather than left out sitting on the sidelines doing absolutely nothing locked out of Ford of Europe's showrooms.

Small car's owners are very stubborn. They have been brain washed by Japanese for decades.

Unfortunately, GM will do whatever it takes to keep that number one sales trophy even if it means onerous incentives and keeping redundant brands. Chevy appears to still be struggling at the expense of a stronger Buick and GMC. As I see it, Buick and GMC are siphoning off Chevy sales as GM makes Chevy the default brand. My credit is blown, I'm behind in my mortgage payment, so I'll buy a Chevy model with a subprime loan. Maybe someday when I get my finanical house in order, I'll buy a Ford, Buick, or GMC product.

Agree, but also they hold grudges for 40 years. When more buyers come on the market, with no 'My 74 Pinto/Vega was junk' memories, then more sales for domestic brands.

Don't forget that this is the first gen Fiesta so the only ones buying them are first time buyers. In another 2 years we'll start to see repeat buyers with the MCE. Exactly what we're seeing with the Fusion. It won't happen overnight. The imports have been doing this for decades.

The problem with Fiesta the way I see it anyway. As a second car, Fiesta probably does well in sales penetration. But as first car, there are lots of small cars out there roomier and cheaper. That's where Fiesta loses. I would like to see Ford sell the B Max here and call it the Fiesta Max and sell it under the Fiesta umbrella. Takes some sales away from Fit, Versa, and others. It would be like a third body style for Fiesta and more work for Mexican plant. Focus should do better this year as pricier 2013 Escape and Fusion come on line.

More competition, most likely. Despite the hype, really small cars are still a niche segment in this country. More entries will require manufacturers to divide up a relatively static pie, as opposed to growing the entire segment. At the same time, full-line manufacturers need an entry, to capture some first-time buyers.
