    One month does not a trend make.

    And to be honest, I'm still amazed at the F-Series' lack of success to be much bothered by one off month at GM. Ford has either achieved market saturation for their pickup recipe or they can't choose a frame vendor to save their life (I'm betting on the first one). Meanwhile, while Ford has edged closer to GM, Mopar is still approaching Ford at a much quicker pace. Not bad for an outfit that has almost zero presence in the small-car and luxury segments, wot?

    Finally, yes... I've been a bit busy with work and Canada Day stuff to spend much time ruminating on these numbers. But I've spoken my peace now.

    Ford Highlights:

     

    DEARBORN, Mich., – Strong consumer demand for its newest products pushed Ford Motor Company total U.S. June sales 2 percent higher, to 225,647 vehicles sold. “Strong retail momentum continues building for our newest vehicles – including F-150, Mustang, Edge, and now Explorer,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “The Ford brand’s average transaction prices have increased $2,700 versus a year ago – more than triple the industry average – while our incentives are down, showing how much customers value our investment in new vehicles with the latest technologies.” F-Series average transaction prices reached an all-time record in June, with average transaction prices moving above $44,000 per truck – $3,600 higher than last year. The all-new F-150 is turning twice as fast on dealer lots than the industry average for half-ton pickups, as Ford continues building dealer stocks. Ford brand SUV sales were up 10 percent year over year, producing the best June sales results since 2002 – with 64,885 vehicles sold. Sales of the new Explorer are off to a fast start, with a total of 20,377 sold, an increase of 30 percent versus a year ago. Sales of the all-new Edge increased 30 percent in June versus last year, with 12,587 vehicles sold. Edge continues to turn quickly on dealer lots – at just 15 days – while the new Explorer is turning in just seven days. Ford van sales totaling 21,419 vehicles represent a 31 percent increase relative to last year, for the best June results since 1999. During the first half of the year, van sales totaled 109,783 vehicles – a 26 percent increase and our best first half van sales performance since 1988. The all-new Transit, with sales of 12,134 vans last month, is driving Ford’s segment growth, with its strongest-ever sales month. Mustang sales were up 54 percent, with 11,719 cars sold. This represents Mustang’s best June performance since 2007. Mustang sales are particularly strong in America’s largest sports car region, Southern California, where retail sales are up 157 percent in June.

    I predict Mustang sales totals for the year will soon eclipse both Camaro and Chally combined.  What a year so far.  

     

    that would be an achievement as Mustang hasn't exceeded Camaro consistently for many years, however, it is a partial year for Camaro this year, so this will likely be Ford's only chance to do it easily.

    Yeah, there has been plenty of month to month wins, but not a whole year.  But Mustang seems to be keeping up the pace, not to mention global sales as well.  Camaro will not see volume increases with new model until 1st quarter of 2016 when the base engine launches, as SS launches first in 4th qtr.  So Mustang will have quite a lead.

    Given that the new Mustang is no sure thing to outperform the current Camaro on the street, I really don't like its chances in the showroom once the new one drops. And a few thousand per year to Richard Hammond clones in Europe won't really help when you consider that the Camaro's new platform has already sold tens of thousands of copies.

    Bottom line: I suspect he Mustang's sales trajectory will mirror that of the F-Series, possibly for the same reason.

    I disagree.  Why?  I think this market is actually going to GROW.  I think Challenger sales will stay level but I think Camaro and Mustang sales will take off with the millennials.  Even though I am not partial to the new Mustang's looks, it is growing on me and you can't argue about the performance.  The 4-cyl turbo motors piss off the purists to some degree but I think they are the primary reason sales will grow.

    Actually, you totally can argue the performance. Most of the reviews of the EB Mustang have said that the performance is adequate, but the added mass saps the power somewhat. And the V8 has no power-to-weight advantage over the old car, though obviously the new rear suspension is a huge step in the right direction.

    The Camaro will once again be a love it/leave it styling proposition. But that will be its only possible weakness. The base turbo four will do fine against Ford's V6, it's Cadillac-sourced 3.6 will do fine against the EB, and the LT1 will roll over the Coyote.

    Huh wha?

    Ummm, pony cars do not sell based on a few 1/10's (plus or minus) performance advantage among their peers.  That is quite possibly the silliest thing I have ever read.  Even when camaro was all new against a tired old chassis Mustang, it did not sell anywhere near these sales deltas right out of the gate, and certainly not for a sustained period, as Mustang appears to be doing.  Mustang appears to have hit the sweet spot in many ways that stirs the flames for fans, and THAT is the reason sales are twice the camaro.

     

    Sorry that does not sit well with some.

    As for performance capacity, I give you the GT350.  At least for now.

    Ya... everyone knows that ponycar customers are conpletely oblivious to performance numbers.

    ...

    Sorry, had to stop and laugh at that. But I'm done now so I can keep typing.

    Anyhow... ya. The Mustang is much like the F-Series: greatly improved over its predecessor and impressive when evaluated on its own. But put it against competition and it inevitably wilts.

    When camaro arrived all new after years of being deep-sixed, it was on the heels of Mustang being at the end as well.

    Even then, it never sold at anything close to the sales delta we see now, and have seen since last December.

    The new Camaro will more than compete on the basis of performance.  The question is, will it compete on style?  Even though I am not a huge fan of the latest Mustang's styling, other people's dollars are speaking.  I fear GM will pull in their loyal base as well as performance oriented buyers but they may not pick up as many sales to millennials that want an efficient coupe with style.  I'm not sure they went far enough with the redo for that.

    ...but seriously now: the Camaro is going to be just fine. I realize that the styling is going to remain polarizing, but GM is aware of that as well. Those who don't like it hate it, those who do like it buy it. The last part's the clincher. The class-leading chassis and we some power to weight is just the capper.

    I like the interior of the new Camaro much much better than Mustang.  The mustang's interior is a bit of a let down after seeing the sexy exterior..... plus, I still loath Sync.

      Cadillac is offering 400 of its smallest dealers a buyout if they don't want to be part of the ambitious and contentious Project Pinnacle.
      Automotive News reports the offers will range from $100,000 to $180,000. The dealers eligible for the buyout sold less than 50 new Cadillac models in 2015. While the 400 dealers make up 43 percent of Cadillac's total number of dealers in the U.S. (around 925), this group only made up 9 percent of total sales last year.
      Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen said the buyouts is to give those an alternative who don't want to forward with the new program.
      “This is going to be a long, arduous and challenging journey and certainly not one for the faint-hearted. Some people may choose to make life a little easier than what lies ahead,” said de Nysschen.
      de Nysschen did say while Cadillac has too many dealers compared to their rivals, the buyout program isn't meant to be seen as a way to get rid of low-volume dealers. 
      Project Pinnacle is a new incentive program that will separate dealers into five tiers based on sales volume. Each tier offers a varying level of customer perk along with different requirements for services and facilities. For example, small stores cannot stock vehicles on site. Instead, they would offer a virtual showroom for customers to explore and order a vehicle. This program has gotten backlash from dealer groups, saying it would violate franchise laws and be unfair to the smaller dealers. 
      Those who have been offered the buyout have until November 21st to either take it or move forward with Project Pinnacle, which is expected to begin January 1st.

      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."

      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."
