    Mustang up ~200% and even Lincoln continues it's double digit climbs.

    Should be at 100K for the year.  Not too shabby.  New MKZ and Conti next year should give a healthy boost, as MKS is doing very little for the brand.

    Pretty solid gains from everyone, except Chrysler and Maserati/Fiat.  Not surprised about Maserati/Fiat, those seem rather undesirable.  This is the first time in recent memory that so many brands had double digit gains, that is good news for the industry.

    Wonder how long this can last given the depression over Europe and Asia happening. I have to think next year will be a cool year for auto sales here. I have to think this is people finally replacing auto's from our own depression of 2007 to 2012 and this is just a big bump.

    Simple fact is, GM makes the best trucks overall.

     

    Most everyone backs away from ocn on this claim.

     

     

    I wouldn't necessarily say backs away.

    I wouldn't say that at all. I think his claims can be backed up pretty strongly. The biggest issue I have with GM trucks is that they don't really push the envelope with small diesels and suspension tech like Ram does. And the Canyonados are even beginning to address that situation. Put it this way: I won't be writing off GM the next time I'm looking for a truck.

    Yes but... GM had a half ton, fullsize diesel pickup truck in the late 70's.  They sold compact diesel trucks here in the 70's and early 80's, with the LUV and S-10 diesels.  And they had coil spring rear suspension on their fullsize pickup trucks in the early 60's.

     

    GM makes the best trucks.

    It’s been 11 full months since the 2015 Ford Mustang arrived at dealerships across the country, and for the 11th month in a row the Blue Oval’s remade muscle car has continued to dominate sales charts. With both of its main competitors set to be replaced or retired soon and Ford pimping the 50th anniversary of the Mustang hard, it really isn’t a surprise. The surprise will be if Ford can keep the sales momentum going after GM and Fiat-Chrysler release their new muscle cars into the wild.

    According to Torque News, Ford sold 9,456 Mustangs in September, a small drop from August sales but still almost as many sales as both the Camaro and Challenger combined. The General managed to move just 5,426 Camaros in the month of September, and the Dodge Challenger came in third (again) with 4,552 units sold. Both numbers represent a steep drop from August, with the Camaro’s fall more expected given the impending arrival of the all-new 2016 models.

    ^

    Recalling that neither latest gen camaro or challenger when introduced came close to Mustang's recent continued 11 month sales spread, I believe Mustang's sales leadership is a slam dunk -- well into next year, and probably for some time to come.

    The last time it sold in those numbers was also the last time it had a new platform. That was back in 2004.

    Once every eleven years is pretty thin gruel for bragging rights.

    Steady sales victories over the previous years are just fine. Like I said, it's not like Ford is exactly punctual with doing new Mustangs, so a once every decade and a half sales spurt is ok.

    Yeah, but when you are the only one on the block selling them for so long as others threw in the towel....there is slightly less competitive incentive to change, no.

    Eh. All I know is that once innovation happens in a segment, the incumbent needs to scramble to catch up. So, as I said, I can live with a once in a blue moon sales spurt.

      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."
