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.

      New cars are getting more and more expensive. Kelly Blue Book reported earlier this month that the average transaction price of a new car was $35,541, up 1.8 percent compared to the same time last year. This has more consumers checking out the used car lot, causing demand to rise.
      “Customers forget a new car is now more than $30,000 and they expect it to be $20,000,” said Brian Allan, a senior director at Galpin Motors Inc., to the Wall Street Journal.
      “When people see the price has gone up, it is sticker shock, especially when people only buy a car every five to six years."
      Data from Edmunds reports that the gap between the price of a new and used car is now at one "of its largest points in more than a decade". Key reasons for this gap include consumers trending to trucks and SUVs, and automakers adding more expensive tech.
      This summer saw a strong demand for used cars and analysts are predicting this trend to continue throughout the rest of the year, partly due to dealers stocking more trucks and utility vehicles. Prices of used cars are also on the rise. Edmunds reports that buyers paid an average of $22,489 for a three-year old used car in the second-quarter - up $865 from the same time last year.
      This isn't good news for automakers as new car sales are starting to slow down and pressure could begin building to deepen discounts to lure consumers back. Lenders have been extending the length of loans and introducing 0 percent financing to make buying new more attractive.
