In September, Ford F-series topped 70,000-truck mark for 7th consecutive month; overall sales down 11.2%

Ford’s F-Series posted its seventh straight month of sales above the 70,000-truck mark in September. As part of that run, F-Series exceeded sales of 80,000 trucks three times this year, said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president, US Marketing, Sales and Service.

However, the September F-Series results of 75,092 units were down 8.8% year on year from a hefty 82,302 last September.

Overall, Ford’s September US sales declined 11.2% on total sales of 197,404 vehicles. The F-Series thus represented 38% of all Ford Motor sales.

Ford’s largest SUVs are also running at a record pace this year. The Expedition turned in a strong 27.4% gain. Lincoln’s Navigator posted a 77.3% gain, with 88% of Navigators sold as high-trim series Black Label and Reserve models.

However, total SUV sales were down 2.5%, with Escape, Edge and Explorer all posting decreases.

Sales of Ford cars were down 26.5%, with the Focus dropping 38.8% and the C-MAX down 85.4%.



Trucks are practical and useful but bought too often as a fashion statement.
