    Must be all those low margin/profit fleet sales dragging them down... "Total Q2 F-Series sales pass the 230,000 mark, further extending our leadership position this quarter. F-Series transaction pricing was solid at $47,500 per truck, $1,200 higher than a year ago and $2,500 above the segment average"

    They're not talking about it, but they've noticed. It's already been given one stay of execution.

    Tesla deliveries surge

    Though I'm still a skeptic of Tesla's management, manufacturing, and profit prospects (but not that all-electrics are the future of the automobile), it's hard to find bad news in these results. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/02/tesla-q2-2019-production-and-delivery-numbers.html

    Tesla deliveries surge

    All-electric vehicles are indeed a pillar of the entire automotive industry's future. Autonomous capability and mobility services are the others. Tesla certainly has its challenges. But it is better prepared for the future than any other major global automaker. It's Ford, GM, Toyota, VW, and the other incumbent automakers that should be worried. Tesla is far ahead of everyone else in the design, engineering, sales, and marketing of BEV. And there's no indication that Tesla's lead is threatened by the incumbents. And Tesla has already proven that they have "technology and pricing making electrified vehicles profitable", here again Tesla is far ahead of anyone else making BEV. Last year, engineer Sandy Munro said that Tesla's system integration capabilities blew his mind and estimates that Tesla Model 3 has 30% gross profit margin based on a teardown his company did.

    Ford reports 2nd quarter 2019 sales

    I'd love to see the actual numbers on all this money people around here claim Ford loses on the Fusion. Heck average hourly pay for auto assembly in Mexico is somewhere between $3.50 to $7.00 an hour. It also could be given a pretty decent economical refresh without a new platform. We saw Ford do this a few times when money was tight back in the late 00's. Anyhow it's a successful nameplate and they should build on that. Will these new vehicles they have planned going up against tough competition with more respected nameplates in their segment will do well? So far the new Ranger isn't selling very well so I hope things go better for other new models they have planned. I sure like my new Ranger, but it seems to have fell flat on it's face in a tough midsized truck market. Hopefully generous incentives and more promotions will get it moving off the lots.

    RAM June Sales

    I personally have no knowledge or experience with new ram trucks. However, I find it interesting how quality is talked so much about but in the grand scheme of things people buy what’s stylish. Look at Audi, they don’t exactly have a blemish free report card. They turn into money pits, like old VWs and BMWs, but people buy them because they are pretty. When a regular car needs repairs, oh it’s a POS. When an import needs repairs, oh it’s German engineering and complicated. Give me a break. News flash, it’s mechanical and built on a budget. It will need repairs at some point. The question is whether the bean counters dictated cuts to mandate poor engineering. Cough: DSP6 cough

    Don’t you think if they were profitable in Q2 they would have already released that. At least a few Musk tweets. They are probably waiting to find a creative way to cook the books and minimize the damage.

    I don’t think Ram quality is that bad, is it? I know it’s worse than Ford but I don’t think POS is applicable here.

    New light & medium duty news

    From Hard Working Trucks Newsletter; Ford today announced record sales of its F-650 and F-750 trucks. According to this morning’s Q2 sales announcement, Ford’s Class 6/7 trucks just posted their best second quarter results since 1997, with an 83 percent year over year gain. Ford credits continuous product improvement and a focus on expanding its commercial dealer network for the growth. “By expanding our medium duty network and providing extensive training and support to our dealers, we now have more than 1,000 trained salespeople across the country helping our commercial customers order exactly the right trucks for their applications, which is directly contributing to our record sales,” says Kevin Koester, Ford commercial truck brand manager. “At the same time, our fivefold increase in medium duty servicing dealerships since 2015 gives customers confidence that whether they operate locally, regionally or nationally, they will be able to get service and support quickly. Since time is money for commercial customers, knowing that they can minimize costly downtime and keep their trucks on the job is also helping drive sales.” When Ford introduced the all-new F-650 and F-750 in 2015, there were fewer than 100 Ford dealers across the country servicing Ford medium duty trucks. Thanks to an ongoing effort from the Ford sales and service teams, there are now more than 500 Ford dealers servicing medium duty trucks across the U.S., and the number of dealers stocking these trucks is up more than 25 percent year over year. For the first half of the year, sales of F-650 and F-750 are up 53 percent, with growth in many vocational market segments, including tree service, towing, beverage distribution and delivery service/freight. Market share is up, too, with Ford picking up almost five points in the Class 6/7 chassis cab segment for a total share of nearly 20 percent, according to registration data through April. In March, Ford announced that F-650 and F-750 for model year 2021 will come standard with a modem providing 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices, as well as many new driver assist technologies, including traction control, hill start assist and auto headlamps. Automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, electronic stability control, lane departure warning, Driver Alert System and auto high-beam headlamps also will be available.

    I like the ranger, but I think there are a few things holding it back. 1) The interior is old and boring. It’s been around for a few years already and they didn’t bother to update any of the electronics inside to match the other new vehicles ford is releasing. Top of the line lariat is still using the same screen setup I’ve had in my 2013 fusion se with my ford touch. 2) Price. Whether deserved or not, many people believe it is over priced. 3)bronco. People in the market for the ranger could also be waiting to see what the bronco or scout look like. 4) next gen ranger leaked. I’m not sure if it was ever confirmed or not to be the next gen ranger, but when that story came out with the pics, it mentioned the all new ranger was only a couple years away. That was enough to wait a bit longer to see what an all new ranger would be like.

    Ford reports 2nd quarter 2019 sales

    I asterisked it, but just want to point it out again - that 5,838 number is for all of Q2, not just the month of June. I don't have a monthly break down of the Heavy trucks, but need to include them each quarter to accurately reflect Ford's overall volume. Explorer sales would also be affected by the plant changeover.

    I'm interested to see how this levels out... Ram's growth has been gradual and steady for several years now. Assuming that GM can react somewhat quickly with a new interior and front/rear end mods in the next 2 model years, so much damage will already have been done. There is plenty of inventory out there, especially of volume models, and the incentives in place for these all-new trucks tell the story. GM's excuse is deflating.

    Love how Ford's 2 trucks have outsold GM's 6 trucks through the first half of the year. Remember when GM fanboys would make a big deal when sales of GM + Chevy > Ford? Ha!

    Where does it mention making a profit from all those sales? if Ford dropped their prices $10k on every vehicle they’d set sales records too.

    I was at the dealership to order my Aviator today and they provided this as well for more details. He said Lincoln has slowly released information as they get closer to build.
