    i think we've hit a  plateau on annual sales rate.  I think the economy has frozen and probably has election jitters now too.

     

    Buick's jump, is it due to the envision?

    More to do with Enclave and Encore having their best July. Buick only moved 1,421 Envisions in July.

    The increase in Challenger's numbers is actually impressive to me. It's pretty old at this point and it's still churning out solid numbers. The development costs have to have been pair for years ago. All money just going into the pockets of FCA to build more Alfas... I'd like to see a new Chally out to push the Mustang and Camaro even more.

    There won't be a new Challenger ( and Charger ) for quite a few more years, 2020 at the earliest from what I've read.

    Big yikes!

    I would still take the Challenger over the other two any day of the week. Edited by surreal1272

    Even when you guys aren't at it you're still passive-aggressive.

     

    I think it is fair to point out specific tidbits of sales figures with one word personal reactions. As long as they're tied just to that specific model or line.

     

    How is one model line representative of the performance of an entire company, especially sales units?

     

    The performance here are shown in aggregate, the sum of many individual performances. And some of them follow an overall theme, and some just don't. 

     

    And don't fret over units as much either on an individual model basis, revenue is also measured in dollars and cents, and that matters too.

    Exactly the point of my post and I'm sorry for contributing that narrow BS by doing that. I'm man enough to admit it.

    Canadians purchased nearly 30,000 Ford and Lincoln vehicles last month, as Ford Motor Company of Canada, Ltd. sales were the best on record for the month of July and up 10 per cent from a year ago. For the fourth time this year, more than 13,000 Ford F-Series trucks were sold in a month, as F-Series set another monthly sales record.

     

    "Record sales in July further cements Ford as the number one automotive brand in Canada," said Dianne Craig, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. "Canadians continue to choose Ford vehicles over the competition, with strength across the lineup in July – from Ford Mustang, to Ford Escape, to another monthly sales record for Ford F-Series.”

     

    Lincoln posted its 11th consecutive month of sales growth, with sales up 8 per cent in July, led by sales of the Canadian-built Lincoln MKX, up 84 per cent.

    Just because:

    Ford's S550 chassis outsold the entire Alpha chassis.

    Mustang: 9565

    Camaro: 5520

    ATS: 2119

    CTS: 1313

    Total: 8952

    First of all, How is the CTS only selling 1313 units??? Without looking.. I have to believe the E Class and 5 Series are 2-4 times that, right? It was a plus month for the ATS! Good! I want more on the road so when I'm ready to buy, there are more to choose from.

      The rivalry of the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang has been going for ages in the U.S. But now this fight has expanded into China.
      Automotive News reports that a growing group of Chinese buyers are being drawn towards to these models as the exude the no-apologies Americana attitude.
      "We're seeing the beginning of a muscle car culture here. Something that is uniquely American appeals to the Chinese consumer. The image that it relays to the automotive public is very positive," said James Chao, a China market auto analyst with IHS Markit.
      Sales of both models are small with Chevrolet only moving 2,000 Camaros since its launch 2011. Ford is doing slightly better with 6,200 Mustangs sold since its launch in 2015. In the first quarter, Mustang sales saw a 90 percent increase to 963 vehicles. Part of the reason for the slow sales comes down to the price. The Camaro starts about 399,900 yuan (about $58,000) - more than double of the base price of $26,900 in the U.S. The Mustang isn't that far behind, costing about $15 dollars less. Prices are increased due to a 25 percent import tariff on U.S. made vehicles, homologation and shipping fees, and Chinese buyers trending to splurge on higher-time models.
      But despite the low sales, the Camaro and Mustang are bringing buyers to dealers. These models act as eye candy to help draw shoppers into showrooms with the hope they'll purchase a vehicle, where it be the eye candy or something a little less exciting.

      If the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal hasn't swayed you from wanting one, then you'll be happy to hear Volkswagen will once again be able to sell brand-new 2015 model year TDI models. Green Car Reports says near 11,000 TDI models will soon be back up for sale once they are updated with new software, making them legal.
      Volkswagen does caution those interested in picking up a new TDI to call their nearest dealership to see if they have any in stock.
      But that's not all. Volkswagen is offering some massive discounts on these models. CarsDirect reports that Volkswagen is offering 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy. Interested in leasing one? Volkswagen will offer a cash bonus of $8,500. 
      There are a couple of caveats to this offer. First, you need to have an excellent credit history to qualify for either offer. Second is that Volkswagen isn't advertising this offer.
      "We will not be advertising the available incentives from our financing arm as they [sic] vehicle availability will vary per dealership," said Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan.

      The new Volkswagen Tiguan looks to solve some of the pressing issues of the current model such as its size that puts it between subcompact and compact crossovers. But that doesn't mean the current Tiguan is leaving anytime soon.
      Hendrik Muth, VW’s senior vice president for product marketing tells Car and Driver that the current Tiguan will stick around for 2018 and 2019, wearing the Tiguan Limited nameplate. Muth explained this model will be aimed at more budget-minded buyers and those who don't want the bigger footprint of the new Tiguan. Another reason mentioned in Car and Driver's story is the current Tiguan saw its best sales in 2015 and 2016.
      One item that could put some people off from buying the Tiguan Limited is will not get the  6-year/72,000-mile warranty announced for the 2018 Atlas and Tiguan crossovers. Expect pricing to be announced sometime in the fall.
