Re: Ford June 2017 Overall Sales Down 5.1%; Lincoln Up 5.3%

Once we get new Navigator onboard we should have a good picture of where Lincoln's overall sales will stand through the end of the decade since they will be done with major new products for at least 2 years. I'm actually more interested in getting Lincoln's low ATPs up so they are selling to more affluent customers. The refresh of MKC and MKX probably won't motivate more sales but they should be able to continue inching up those prices and features while preserving sales. China will help to move the needle more for the company as a whole.

The Irony is Ford invented the modern Sub compact SUV with the original Ecosport in 2003. and in 2017 we still don't have a product to sell.

I am in the market for a premium compact car with an Independent Rear suspension.

I hope they (replace the MKT) actually FILL the X//Navi BLANK-SPOT soon(er)
imho
they could go from ~4k per YEAR >> to upto 3k per MONTH
&
without stealing from X or Navi if right-sized

It was December (I pointed it out in the post).

I specifically added the 13K range to the chart in anticipation of this December's results. They weren't far off from 13K last year, in fact, as Bloggin pointed out.

I wonder if Ford of NA got skittish with short wheelbase, narrow and tallish vehicles after the Explorer-Firestone fiasco. I mean, let's face it, these compact SUV's are about as far away from safe as you can get.


Oh and btw, we have Fields to thank, for finally bringing the EcoSport here.

Funny you should say that. We can't GIVE Energis away. In the 3.5 years I've been here, we have sold 2 and I sold them both. Our current oldest unit is a 1057 day old 2015 Fusion Energi Titanium.

Ford need to give USA a subcompact crossover asap, but in Europe they need to do more than that. Ford Europe need a replacement for the old and very unrefined EcoSport and a slightly bigger crossover in the size of the actual C-Max. The competition (VW, Renault, Opel, Citroen,Seat) have 2 or 3 vehicles in the B-C market (from Fiesta to Focus size).
