    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.

    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 automotive industry in the U.S. has been enjoying one of the best years in terms of sales. But one segment is seeing a drop in their sales. That segment is the midsize sedan.
      Automotive News reports that the demand for midsize sedans is at a five-year low. The numbers tell this sad story. In the first quarter of 2016, sales of midsize sedans dropped 3.4 percent. The second quarter saw sales dropped 13 percent, while the third quarter saw a whopping 21 percent drop. For the month August, all 16 midsize sedans saw an average drop of 27 percent. The Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, and Nissan Altima reported drops of over 30 percent.
      Automakers have been throwing money on the hoods of their midsize sedans to try and ignite sales. But this tactic isn't working.
      Why are midsize sedan sales down? It comes down to consumers wanting crossovers and SUVs.
      "It doesn't matter how deep you discount the leisure suit and bell-bottoms -- nobody's going to buy them if they're not fashionable. I don't think they're ever going to go away, but there's a lot more people who don't consider them anymore," said Eric Lyman, vice president of industry insights at TrueCar. 
      The outlook for midsize sedan sales doesn't look good as we enter fall and winter.
      "That larger sedan buyer just sees more value in the SUVs or CUVs," said Mike DeSilva, co-owner of Liberty Hyundai in Mahwah, N.J. "That's just where the activity is. And heading into the end of summer and going into winter, we're really going to get into SUV season."

      If you think the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' sales probe couldn't take an unexpected turn, then you would be wrong. The Wall Street Journal reports that federal investigators are asking questions about a phrase that was used by various executives to dealers and regional sales managers.
      According to sources, executives at FCA would use the phrase “unnatural acts department” during conference calls and one-on-one conversations. This phrase was to convey to dealers and regional sales managers to get more sales before the end of the month. Such solutions included selling vehicles at a loss or asking dealers to buy a number of vehicles that would be used for test-drives with customers. Investigators are trying to figure out if the phrase was used a way to rally the troops to meet sales targets or a key piece of evidence of whether or not FCA executives deceived the public by using this phrase to tell dealers to falsify sales numbers.
      As we reported back in July, FCA is currently under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission over their sales reporting practices. The investigation stems from dealers in Florida and Illinois suing the company for falsifying sales numbers. In the same month, FCA admitted the sales streak that supposedly lasted for 75 months only lasted for 40 months. The company also changed how it reported sales numbers.
