DEARBORN, Mich., June 3, 2013 – Ford Motor Company’s U.S. sales grew 14 percent in May, with cars up 9 percent, utilities up 15 percent and trucks up 18 percent. Retail sales increased 17 percent, marking the best May retail sales results since 2005.

 

“Our fuel-efficient Fusion and Escape have set monthly sales records for four straight months,” said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “F-Series sales – fueled by construction growth and pent-up demand – reached their highest level in more than six years.”

 

Fusion posted its best-ever May sales of 29,553 vehicles – with its strongest areas of sales growth in the western and southeastern areas of the U.S.

The fuel-efficient Escape small utility posted its best-ever sales month since being introduced 13 years ago – a 26 percent increase with 29,123 vehicles sold last month.

America’s best-selling pickup, the F-Series had its strongest May sales result since 2005. F-Series’ 71,604 sales in May represented a 31 percent increase versus last year and its 22nd straight monthly sales increase.

 

In May, Lincoln MKZ sales increased 42 percent versus last year. This represents MKZ’s best-ever May sales, building on MKZ’s best-ever sales month in April.

In addition, Ford announces its 2013 third-quarter North American production. The company plans to build 740,000 vehicles in the third quarter, up 10 percent from the 673,000 vehicles produced in the third quarter of 2012.

 

The third quarter plan includes the company’s recent announcement to add 40,000 vehicles from a reduced July summer shutdown and the addition of 200,000 units of annualized straight-time capacity starting in the fall of this year.

 

Second quarter production of 800,000 vehicles is unchanged from previous guidance.

According to Edmunds sales forecasts, Ford will gain rapidly on the GM this month.  250,007 for GM vs. 243,782 for Ford.   Toyota continues to lose market share, and Hyundai/Kia seem to be losing momentum.

If that is true, the sales threads on GMI will be epic.

 

When GM does real well, the thread explode. When they don't, they are amazingly quiet. LOL

 

I will go out on a limb here, and say that if GM only barely outsold Ford last month, that will be with significantly higher incentives per vehicle also. That would make it all the more interesting.

FoMoCo was within about 6,000 units of GM, despite having half as many brands (and their only other brand being Lincoln!).

Lincoln MKZ appears to be cannibalizing other Lincoln's, no sales gain overall.

MKS sales maybe, but they were pretty well in the crapper even before the new MKZ launched. At this point, every Lincoln sans the MKZ should rightfully really just be ignored until more new metal arrives.

Agree, but other than the MKX, everything else is so bad. When people enter a Lincoln dealership, only 2 products are good enough to stand out.

 

I think that if the production MKC and new MKX are as appealing as the new MKZ, then more people will be brought into the LIncoln fold instead of the cannibalizing that is going on now.

F-series over 70,000?

 

There is an increase activities in the construction industries. That may have lead to a jump into F-series' sales.

There were quite some negative web users' comments on the fore-coming "aluminum" F-series. I hope people are not afraid of the new truck, getting the current version quick before the next generation arrive.

I would be curious about what this means for car sales per dealership, I have got to believe that Fords sales per dealership is much higher than GMs if taken into account all the brands for GM.

I am waiting for Germeez and America 123 to come in and find a way to spin it.  Those 2 are total trolls.

A larger portion of GM's sales are from luxury divisions, which should mean greater revenue, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Also keep in mind that a good chunk of Ford's sales come from vehicles with luxury-like prices like higher trim SUV's and pickups.

I think it's going to take the MKC to turn the tide on Lincoln's sales slide.  The MKZ isn't a blockbuster, and the MKC will also eat into the MKX until a new one arrives.  I don't think a new MKS is terribly important in terms of volume, but it's probably a key margin stuffer.  A next-gen MKT is still a long-ways off sadly.
