Re: 2020 Ford Explorer. Begin the reviews and comparo

Ford got to hope that the Bronco twins will reverse the sales downfall in Fall. If the new Bronco and Baby Broncos do not sell well, Ford will be up against Jeepís new 2021 Grand Cherokee near the same time frame in the marketplace. Ford screw the quality and made the dash and center stack to primitive looking and is paying the price against CX-5, Palisade and Telluride which have luxury quality interiors.

Re: 2020 Ford Explorer. Begin the reviews and comparo

Congrats Ford, profit-less sedans way down as expected, while not having to spend Billions on re-tooling factories for all of them.

Lincoln sales up nicely, but most importantly due entirely to profit-oozing high margin SUVís, which continue to rise.

Ford large trucks are killing it, as usual, even while Ranger is doing so well and taking some of their sales Ė all while maintaining their generation long leadership. Win-win.

Even profit-rich fleet friendly vehicles like Transit, Transit Connect and E-Series continue their popularity, which few other makers can claim similar success.

Expedition is way, way, WAY up, and I hear the high trim take rate is off the charts. Brilliant Ford, Brilliant.

Even Edge and Flex is up.

And itís nice to see Explorer and Escape sales bouncing back to normal, after quality issues. Especially Explorer. Another quarter should have them close to, if not matching previous numbers, but most importantly, the high ATP increase for both is a massive multiplying factor for margin. As it is for ALL of Ford/ Lincoln ATPís. I really canít wait to see how huge all the huge margin increases and lack of low margin spending from sedans, will boost total profits. That may take quite a quarters however. Next up, Baby Bronco and soon after, Bronco.

I hope Ford can better balance its price margin & sales volume.
Such a waste if high prices kept some consumers away from Ford dealerships.

On the bright side, for Q4 2019, the Ranger (33,059) outsold the Colorado + Canyon (total of 31,409).

Outsold GM small twins combined huh. That's respectable. Although GM had a pretty good year overall, considering their strike.

GM didn’t have a great year....Ram had a great year, 18% increase in sales in market that is contracting or flat is a huge accomplishment.

I clearly said GM had a "pretty good year, considering the strike."

Was there a recent price-increase on the Explorer?

It seems that at least the options on the ST went up a bit...
