6700 EcoSports.  Pretty impressive for something many say is a horrible little SUV.

 

Trucks and SUVs continue to flourish.  New Edge and Explorer are definitely going to be welcome though.

I think the Ecosport underscores the demand for product in this area. More expensive than a Fiesta and roughly the same price as a Focus.

The day I picked up my 2018 F150 my salesman had just sold their last F150 SuperCrew that morning.

 

Had to beg two truck off area dealers just to have a couple on the lot.

Nice to see Lincoln back positive overall too.  Continental numbers are disappointing, though.

 

It'll be interesting to see how Nautilus does.  When does it arrive?

Man, if dealers around here only had a couple of trucks on the lot, people would think they were going out of business.

They sold 22 just from that $3000.00 cash voucher program. I got lucky and ordered my truck on their last order allotment.

It's crazy, really.  All on something that hasn't been touched in 5 years.  Heck, it looks nearly identical with the same engine / transmission as our '09 model.

I'm sure it's mostly fleet/rental at this point, though.

I can see the Flex having a relatively small but dedicated group of buyers. The people who buy them really love them.

Not too shabby overall, mostly the same trends we've seen all year.  Their Utilities and Crossovers fairly flat overall with better retail on Expedition and excellent growth on Navigator.  The decline on their cars are picking up once again as C-Max and Focus phase out.  If Ford can keep their sales fairly flat for the year, that's an achievement with the loss of volume products and no major new products.

 

Lincoln Continental is fading very fast now along with MKZ, probably a good time to phase those out now.  Their utilities are pulling all of the weight now and doing quite well offsetting their massive car declines.

I'd consider another, but can't justify buying one now that's the same thing as what I have with a different grille, headlights, and gauges/center stack, but no other changes.

I think it would be a shame to discontinue the MKZ as, other than the somewhat snug back seat leg room issue, it is a really fine vehicle and the hybrid model gets really good gas mileage for a mid-size luxury car.

I had a 2013 MKZ Hybrid for 3 years (lease) and I really liked it. I was considering buying a 2019 MKZ-H next spring (maybe even the Black Label version), but I am uncertain now what I will do if Lincoln decides to quit making them (I realize it is unclear whether Ford/Lincoln will quit making Fusions and MKZs in the next year or so).

Ford's financial report said that by 2020 they would be down to Mustang and Focus Active, so my guess is 2020 is the final MY for Fusion and MKZ.
