    Wow, Acura and Chrysler down deep into double digits. Ouch.

    Alfa gets an award for most improved!! Lol.

    Chrysler's hit is likely the 200 coming completely off the lots.

     

    So many downs...

    Ford has a problem in that Escape, Edge and Explorer were all down at a time when people are buying crossovers like there is no tomorrow.  And Fusion was down 37%, Taurus is dead in the water, that is basically a fleet sale car until the day they cancel it.

    Good thing they have the F150 kicking butt, because the rest of the brand is in trouble.  And Lincoln is flat, and doesn't really have anywhere to go, luxury sedan sales aren't going up unless they have a 3-point star on the hood, and Lincolns crossovers can't match the performance of the Euros, and Lexus and Cadillac have more sub $40k crossovers about to hit the market to go after MKC and the segment below MKC which puts a block on Lincoln introducing and MKA based on the Ecosport.   Zero growth opportunity for Lincoln right now.

    Subaru just keeps chugging along, I read something like they sold 250,000 cars in the US 10 years ago, and they could top 600,000 this year.   People like that all wheel drive.

    Subaru is not that big.  Then again, they have their niche and are doing better than almost any one brand.

    I do have a question or two: Why is RAM selling better than the GMC Sierra?

    Slightly more importantly, when is Ford going to give people a REAL product reason to choose Lincoln over everybody else?

     Ford has some of the same problems others do, just easier to see....

    Every midsize sedan is down, with some companies compact car outselling the midsize one....

    Large sedans in general are dead....

    Crossovers are tough to see though, my thought being it might simply be the number of choices out there now, as pretty much everyone has stepped up their game. Could be the sheer number of baby crossovers too. The Escape does surprise me, as it's a pretty nice SUV....

    I think Acura has some of the best designs coming out.  Their front styling is very aggressive and unique.  People need time to adapt to it and then it will be legendary.  Far better than GM cars, for sure.

    Escalade-2862

    Navigator-897

     

    Surely the new Navigator will close the gap. 

    I could see those numbers.. well.. not flipping... but Cadillac dropping while Navigator grows.  I think for the moment the Escalade will remain in front because it is a much more known quantity right now, but over time I could see Navigator pull ahead if Cadillac *cough* rests on it's laurels.... :duck:

    If Lincoln keeps the costs in line, this could be the nail in the coffin for the likes of the Infiniti QX80 and Lexus LX460. Automotive Darwinism.

    With that DOHC V8 coming soon, I don't think they will be resting for long. The Slade is too big of a cash cow to let that happen but you are exactly right regarding sales.

    No, I'm sure we'll see a new Escalade about a year after the Navigator gets its first full year of sales in and then the gloves will be off.

    Everyone here knows how much I :wub: the Escalade.... but if the Navigator were on sale today... I'd probably go with the Navigator.

    Certainly understandable but neither one would be a bad choice IMO.

    • Perhaps the Godzilla engines will last that long, but it will depend on what rivals come out with also, that engine may not be competitive in 5 years.  But I could see 10 more years of gas V8s in the Super Duty's, they'll be long gone in an F150, the 2025 Ram has no V8, the Silverado probably won't in 5 years, they are already pushing the 4-cylinder Silverado.
    • I so facepalm this as I totally agree with you, I have come to feel Washington state needs to have yearly vehicle safety inspections. I am seeing so many autos from the South/Southeast that are in terrible condition driving on the roads with same issues or worse, accident damage that has fenders, bumpers, etc. bent way out that could hurt people as well as cause damage to other autos. The number of autos I am seeing on the road with no taillights, single headlight, no markers working, third cyclops brake light not working, time to make people realize driving is a privilege earned and not a right and driving dangerous autos on the road is a danger to all.
    • They will absolutely have a gasoline V8 in the Super Duties in 2030. They're both brand new like a year or two ago. They could leave them untouched, in this segment, and ride them out until 2035, easily. The old 6.2 was built for the SDs until 2022, when it was replaced by the 6.8 pushrod v8, which was in addition to the 7.3.  The V8's in the Super Duty are not based off the 5.0. They're both pushrod V8's, 6.8L & 7.3L. The SDs are the only application for this pair of engines. 
    • Also reminded the other day how Ohio has no safety inspections...saw a 90s GMT 400 era Chevy pickup rolling down the road with crazy front wheel camber and the bed sides rusted and flared out/sagging on each side, rusted front fenders and doors.    Also was behind for a while a mid 90s S10 pickup, riding lower on the left side than the right with what I thought was a big mud flap flapping in the wind on the right...but it was ahead of the rear wheel.  It pulled off later and I got a good view of the right side, the 'flap' was a big chunk of rear bed side/fender that was rusted out and hanging loose behind the cab ahead of the wheel arch... 
    • GM's turbo 4 is a better move, but that 3.6 V6 had issues anyway so I don't think it is as hard to replace, compared to the VQ engines that were great in their day but are past their prime now.  But everyone does this, and 2024 Mercedes E350 makes 13 less horsepower than a 2007 E350 and nearly 50 less hp than a 2012 E350.  The goal is all fuel economy and reducing emissions now, big engines are dead, and it's kind of sad.
