Full January 2017 Release and Charts
DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 1, 2017 – Ford Motor Company’s U.S. retail sales of 120,400 vehicles are up 6 percent in January, while total sales declined 1 percent.

Fleet sales of 52,212 vehicles, including daily rental, commercial and government segments, declined 13 percent. The fleet decline reflects a strong year-ago comparison, with fleet customer orders front-loaded at the beginning of 2016.

Ford F-Series sales totaled 57,995 trucks last month, a 13 percent increase, supported by strong retail gains from both F-150 and Super Duty. F-Series was up 19 percent at retail, with gains in every region. January represents the best sales start for F-Series since 2004.

“The new year brought strong consumer demand for F-Series, Lincoln and record SUV sales, especially high-end models,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “This drove near-record company average transaction prices for Ford, up $2,500 versus a year ago and far outpacing the overall January industry increase of $550.”

Retail sales of Ford brand SUVs were up 11 percent last month, driving overall SUV sales up 6 percent, with 53,224 vehicles sold. January marks the best-ever overall start for Ford SUVs.
Lincoln sales totaled 8,785 vehicles in January, the brand’s best start in a decade.

Strong performance from the all-new Lincoln Continental, with 1,167 cars sold, contributed to the brand’s overall 22 percent increase. Additional contributors included Lincoln MKZ with sales of 2,090 sales – up 7 percent – Lincoln MKC with 1,668 sales – a 16 percent gain – and MKX with 2,928 sales – a 43 percent gain.

Note: Ford is adding additional data to our news release, including stock and fleet percentages. In addition, Ford is reporting both dealer stock and gross stock levels, as some automakers report dealer stock only and do not include inventory in transit to dealers.

Re: Ford January 2017 Sales Down 0.6% overall, Lincoln up 22.4%

Continental just short of 1.2k for the month when it appears everybody is down, still a very good showing! Of course it's still very new to the market so I'll still be interested to see how well it manages to hold those sales numbers as we move deeper into its first year.

All in all not much all that surprising given the market overall. The biggest problem areas are what you would expect it to be which is the oldest product on offer. Hard to be shocked that Fiesta and Focus sales are down as much as they are given they're tired and about to be replaced. The Fusion is a little tougher to swallow, but that mid-size segment is cut throat and the Fusion's supermodel looks aren't enough to prop it up now that everybody and their grandmother owns one!

Interestingly Lincoln is quite the bright spot! Four of the five ongoing models are all up, with only the Navigator being down slightly. The MKS is dead, the MKT is dead though nobody remembered to tell it, and the Navigator will be replaced by years end. For all my bitching about their glacial pace and product choices over the years they're doing good things and their sales are proving Ford to be right, and me wroo, err, wrooooooo, *cough* wrooooooo.... not 100% correct.

I wonder what drove Expedition sales to over 42%.
I don't recall seeing a big incentive push. Anybody know?

=======================

Every sub-$50,000 car on the market will have to answer to the Ford from now on, no matter what badge it brings to the table.

Month after month starting last half of last year, Expedition sales have increased 20-40% month over month. I have not seen a big nationwide incentive being advertised, so something must be offered at the dealership level.

Because its amazing lol,

this actually maybe fords doing. tbe navi concept has been on a roadtrip, everyone knows about it now and are now waiting for it, limiting navi sales. who could blame em, i mean is there a comparison btw the current navi and concept navi🤔

however, the expy has never been shown yet with no mention by ford of when itll be revealed, so ppl are either pulling the trigger due to impatience or just dont know a better newer one is due to come out in 10mnths

I would like to see it outsell the XTS. With the CT6 selling in such low numbers, I don't see how Caddy can get rid of their FWD large sedan.


Ram almost outsold the Silverado!
Camry down 24%
Mustang beating Camaro...again
Explorer (along with the police version) selling great! Lincoln could sell 3K per month of these!
