You know what stands out to me the most?  PIU more than doubling PI sales in addition to its own.

 

Winter must be coming.


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)

Odd dip in CMax sales, otherwise, looking good! 

 

F-Series is just nuts. 65k trucks???

 

Edge and MKX finally starting to show their age?

 

Go Flex!

 

2,100 units aren't enough to save it, sad as it is. After this cycle, it's a goner.

Which is sad, because the Flex is such a great vehicle!  We were hoping to get another, but, it'll be gone before we are in the market again.  :(

I planned on keeping ours til the wheels fall off, but may pull its replacement ahead when we know it's done.

Our original plan was to keep 6-8 years, which is about the norm for us.  But, we are building a house next year, so were planning on pushing it to maybe 10 years for this one, which puts us out to '18.  I don't think the Flex will still be around then, so we'll see what Ford has to offer in the '19 model year.

I read a Reuters article about why the Fusion won't pass the Camry and Accord in sales. Its all about the YEN and the ability of the Japanese Government to use it as a major cost advantage. Camry has a cost advantage of between $1500 to almost $2000 over a Fusion. They outsold Fusion by almost 8000 units in November. Mr Obama had warned the Japanese about the devalued Yen in April...but its December and nothing has been done and we see that in the sales number! Mulally has been very vocal about it, but nothing will be done.  

Cruze killing the Focus each month in sales...Why? Chevy total sales per month include an average of 25% going to Fleet orders. I wonder what percentage of Ford total sales are fleet orders?

According to Mr Merkle, sales analyst at Ford, fleet sales are comparable to Chevy. I can't understand why the Cruze beats Focus...unless its price?

 

Erich Merkle

So we will start off with our fleet data. So as we look at fleet as a percentage of our total sales and we look at the month of November fleet was 23% of our total sales, 13% for commercial, 4% for government and 6% for daily rental. Comparing to November of 2012 fleet was 24% of our total sales that would have been 14% for commercial, 4% for government and 6% for daily rental.

When we start looking at calendar year-to-date January through November fleet as a percentage of our total sales were 29% that would translate into 13% for commercial, 5% for government and 11% for daily rental. This compares to January through November last year of 30% for total, 14% for commercial, 5% for government and 11% for daily rental.

How can this be?  The Camry is the "most American car..."  (sarcastic)

I have been amazed at the genius marketing folks at Toyota that have many customers of the Camry believing they are buying the "most American" car, while Toyota takes advantage of their Japanese homeland's unfair trade practices that have been going on for decades.

Edge and MKX finally starting to show their age?

 

 

MKX seems to be relatively consistent with just under/around 2000/month lately.  Edge seems a bit harder to predict with sales often bouncing up and down.  I believe it was over 10,000 just last month or the month before.  I would expect a bump in both of them though when the new one arrives.

I would assume it is not selling enough.  It was part of an plant idle in October and again this month.  Not sure what the current supply is, but back in October it was up at 122 days.
