Behind the Numbers with Erich Merkle: August, 2015
Bob Seger once sang about “running against the wind.” Well, we did just that in
August, and let me explain why. The year-over-year comparisons for August were
destined to be really tough for the industry because the Labor Day weekend –
which typically provides a strong boost in vehicle sales – happened to be counted
as part of “August” sales last year. This year, Labor Day weekend is included in
September sales figures. For this reason the majority of our competitors
experienced a decline in sales.
We’ve been talking a lot about the gains that we would see in the second half of
the year. Leaning into the wind we muscled out a 5 percent gain and saw our
share rise. August can best be described as an impressive Ford sales month
powered by . . . you guessed it . . . our newest products. This is an important step
forward for us.
Let’s look at some of that muscle.
F-Series truck sales were up 5 percent, marking the best August sales since 2006.
And for the first time since we completed the plant changeovers to the all-new F-
150, we surpassed the 70,000 truck mark for the month. That’s selling an F-Series
pickup an average of every 38 seconds during the month of August. Let that soak
for a minute . . . and we achieved this without the added Labor Day weekend
sales boost. It’s a true testament to the power and popularity of our Built Ford
Tough trucks. It’s also important to point out that F-150 EcoBoost sales are
growing, representing 63 percent of F-150 retail sales in August giving us an 86
percent increase versus EcoBoost F-150 sales relative to year ago.
Our vans also went to work in August, with sales up 70 percent, marking our best
van performance since 1994 led by Transit and Transit Connect. Transit sales
totaled 10,263 vans while Transit Connect produced its best-ever August results
with 3,995 vans sold. When America works it’s in a Ford!
Ford brand SUVs were strong in August with sales up 12 percent, giving us our
best August SUV sales month since 2003. The days-to-turn is so tight on our
newest SUVs that we have a tremendous opportunity to sell even greater 
numbers. Edge sales were up 36 percent with vehicles turning in just 20 days on
dealer lots. And Explorer sales were up 22 percent and turning in only 16 days.
August marked the fourth consecutive month that Explorer sales lifted above
20,000 vehicle mark.
Mustang sales continued to accelerate with sales up 70 percent in August. We’re
seeing sales increases in every part of the U.S. In California, for example, Mustang
retail sales were up almost 70 percent, and retail sales in Florida doubled in
August.
Our newest products are out and the uptake in the market is significant right now.
This is clearly demonstrated in the August sales numbers, despite the difficult
Labor Day weekend timing differences. Our hard work with the record number of
new product transitions last year and into this year has paid off. Now it’s pedal
down, as we are going to have to maximize our production output to stock our
inventories and fill demand. The folks love ‘em!!!

If you're wondering where the releases are (along with the rest of the numbers), I have them in my hands and they'll be going up a bit later today.

      Almost a year after Buick introduced their Avenir subbrand, it has proven to be a big success for the brand's big crossover.
      According to Automotive News, one out of every four Enclaves sold is the top-line Avenir. That's pretty impressive when you consider that the base price for the Avenir is $54,495. GM says demand from dealers is outstripping their supplies, despite a new investment earlier this year.
      Sales of the new Enclave have risen 15 percent in the first half of this year, and the average transaction price has risen $5,000 - putting it in line with the likes of the Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.
      "We saw the need to provide even more for Enclave, and it was a direct result of sales of the first generation. They were asking for even more options and equipment," said Jace Stokes, manager of product marketing for the Enclave.
      Stokes went onto say that the success of Avenir for the Enclave has them thinking about what to do for the next-generation of the subbrand. 
      "We certainly have more technology planned. I think next generation is where we're going to push Avenir further."
