Re: Poor Sales Have Sealed The Fate Of Ford Edge In The UK, Other Countries Will Foll

WTF? Edge not profitable in Europe? In Spain, the Edge start at 46K €, before any option! For that money, you can buy another medium size crossover of a premium brand (Land Rover Discovery, Jaguar E-Pace, BMW X3, Audi Q3...) If Ford can´t make money in a 50K$ crossover in Europe, maybe is time to close it business here.


IMO, the Edge is too expensive and compete with the best of Europe and Asia here, at the same price . Is not competitive...

Re: Poor Sales Have Sealed The Fate Of Ford Edge In The UK, Other Countries Will Foll

"DETROIT — Ford Motor Co.'s U.S. sales fell 4.1 percent in May, extending the automaker's streak of sales declines to four consecutive months, according to the Automotive News Data Center.

Ford's venerable F-series line of pickups also had lower sales for a fourth-straight month. Sales were down for most cars and for the Lincoln luxury brand, too. But May was the best month in nearly two years for the Ford Fusion and in almost four years for the Fiesta.

Notable nameplates: F series down 0.3%; Explorer down 40%; Escape down 0.6%; Fusion up 38%; Mustang down 17%; Expedition up 38%; Ranger, 7,748 units; Lincoln Nautilus/MKX up 16%; Lincoln MKC down 19%; Continental down 23%"

Greed is reversing the trend as consumers not willing to be overcharged or just can't afford to pay $6k to $8k more for an SUV, are sticking with or going back to more affordable cars. Toyota May sales were also boosted by higher than expected Camry demand.

Unfortunately, and as usual, Ford is so slow at implementing their plan, that the SUV trend will be in full reverse by the time Ford kills off their high volume sedans/hatchbacks, with nothing in the pipeline.

My opinion of your post Bloggin?


F series lower for the fourth month? 0,3% Maybe 2000 units less? The units that Ford produce in half an hour?

Explorer down 40%? Of course! is in the middle of the launch of a new model!

MKC down 19%? see Explorer....same case
Escape down 0,6%? See Explorer and MKC....same case





And about your comment: "Ford is slow at implementing their plan... ...with nothing in the pipeline" Really? Really? Nothing? Maybe you are not informed:
New Explorer rigth now
New Aviator rigth now

New Escape rigth now
New Corsair rigth now

New EV crossover in the next 6 months
New Bronco in the next 12 months
New Puma compact crossover (Europe and maybe US) in the next 6 months





About the Camry demand higher than expected, the rise is 20%, compared with the Fusion's sales rise of 38%... so... Ford win.


It's good to enter FIN and have a good time laughing with your post, Bloggin ... thanks for that.

F-series was down 0.34%, or 284 units for May. Yes, 284. Down 2,962 on the year. Hardly a blip on F-series volume.

Great news for Ranger! - Though I still hope they add a sunroof option and make the back seat 60/40 spit and lay down flat for the 2020 model year.

That’s exactly why I had to go buy a new PHEV somewhere else.

Ok. I want to see the pictures of that PHEV from "somewhere else".


P.S.: if you want a PHEV and don`t want to go to "somewhere else", you can go to a Lincoln dealer and buy the spectacular new Aviator Grand Touring. But, maybe, it is too much car for you... and for your pocket.
