Why is Chrysler not red since it is down? A bit surprised by the BUICK number as that I figured would be at least even. Cadillac is also a bit of a surprise. Fiat is to be expected and alfa is also down though I understand the current rating..

Cadillac was down probably because of the SRX production winding down.

 

Escalade sales have also kinda levelled off. The sedans are arguably doing much better compared to the losses elsewhere in the industry. I think BMW has finally confused its sedan buyers with too many similar products - over segmenting. Like really, if the 4 Series is the better looker of the 3 Series chassis based car - why not just make the 4 Series the 3 Series? Simply things like that. Also, I think C-Class and whole slew of competitors are giving it to BMW.

 

I think Cadillac being reorganized - this is to be expected even now. Their new communications are all about a completely different kind of brand identity they want to project and the awareness of the brand they are striving to build is completely different. 

 

Lincoln is doing something very smart. They are catering to buyers who are no longer served by Lexus, Cadillac and everyone else going sporty. I think Buick also gains a lot from that. 

 

And the kinds of vehicles that Lincoln is selling are very viable. Commonality works. It keeps the RX and ES going. Cadillac's biggest sellers will always be the Escalade and SRX/XT5. 

 

And I think Cadillac will try to convert the XTS buyers to CT6. It should work out well. But still. The XTS I think did far better than Cadillac could have imagined. Combine those and CTS sales and you've got a lot a good combo of people buying the sports luxury sedan and the luxury cruiser sedan.

I fail to see what the fuss is all about re. GM. They said they were going to cut back on fleet sales and they did. Meanwhile I have read in another place that nearly 2 of every 5 Ford sales are now fleet. If that's how you want to grow your brand then by all means do so. But don't be so naive as to think it's because of some groundswell by the car buying public. By the same token there were a lot less happy folks that month last year when FCA beat Ford in retail sales. This is just both sides of the same coin.

Then why is their growth in ATPs double the industry average?

 

Seems like to me they are getting favourable volume in their mix.

 

They're doing record commercial deliveries.

 

Conceivably they could be selling more higher trim F150s to businesses. Who knows. A mystery though how their transactions prices are increasing.

 

Also, a lot of Ford models are older now. The Focus and Fiesta are old, so getting more volume outta them makes sense. 

 

But then again, why do we continue to compare Ford's financial performance to GM?

 

It's because for the longest time even as a smaller firm Ford outperformed GM. The General finally getting its act together - I would expect, I WOULD DEMAND GM as a shareholder to beat Ford in retail sales. No $h!.

No.

They went all-in on fleet when GM bailed. And this is the result.

And IM pretty sure that the uptick in F-series sales was largely in their "refrigerator white" series.

Seriously guys. Much ado about lots of vehicles being bought by bots instead of people. A numbers game sure to warm the heart of any good beancounter, but certainly not indicitive of any sudden retail embrace of Ford. I hear that even Wall Street wasn't terribly impressed-outlooks for Ford and GM were similarly meh.

The downvotes sure are cute tho

" Customers continue buying high-end SUVs and trucks, helping the Ford brand increase its average transaction prices by more than $1,600 per vehicle in March -- nearly double the industry average,” Mark LaNeve, Ford's vice president for U.S. marketing, sales and service, said in a statement. “We have been seeing solid sales momentum in the first quarter across our entire portfolio.

Across the industry, TrueCar estimates incentive spending per vehicle rose 10 percent to $3,005 last month compared with March 2015. BMW AG had the highest average incentive last month at $4,816, TrueCar estimates, followed by Daimler AG ($3,981); GM ($3,943); FCA ($3,887); Nissan ($3,362); VW Group ($3,349); Ford ($3,271); Kia ($2,868); Hyundai ($2,163); Toyota ($2,027); Honda ($1,590) and Subaru ($569).

Yup. According to an admin at another place who checked the numbers, 37% of ALL FORD SALES LAST MONTH were fleet.

Good for raw numbers. But not exactly what you're looking to build your brand on.

It is troubling to see the persistent cannibalization of Ford sales by Lincoln and vice-versa. MXC sales are down while Escape sales are up, and both Lincoln sedans are in the same situation. The Edge is the sole notable exception.

And then there's the question of how many of those are fleet sales.

Nice numbers on thre surface. But there are still issues to be dealt with at Ford.

The MKX had pretty strong sales. 

 

GM still sells a lot to fleet. Escalade and XTS get a good chunk from livery services. Likely that the XTS over its product cycle has seen an uptick over the years.

 

Remember, 15% of Malibu sales are all the outgoing Limited. Most of those go straight to fleet. GM said when the new Impala came out it would wait a good while before it went to fleet. Broken promise, they started popping up at your local Enterprise within the first quarter.

 

Likely as they wind down Malibu Limited they'll do the same for the new one.

Yeah...that about sums it up, Suave...

 

 I just wanted to do the Cadillac -% sales versus Lincoln +% sales and tying it up neatly with that "dare greatly" thing for the cheap, gratuitous  laughs...

Well, the commercial sales can be quite lucrative. No one has ever said that B2B sales aren't worth pursuing.

 

And I hardly think the Ford Transit - arguably the best commercial van available at this time waters down Ford's brand. They're known to sell to fleets, and Ford commercial vehicles have a heavy market presence.

 

Besides Mercedes and its corporate siblings also are deeply into those segments. Yet somehow they have a very high brand value.

 

What should really be scary is how is Ford able to generate almost equivocal profits to the new resurgent GM with supposedly a growth spurt in utility sales and commercial vehicles, yet still being handily outsold by GM, almost twice in terms of units by GM worldwide.

. Because of their upper end trucks. It's right there on the Ford link. Sorry but Bong has a point about the fleet sales and this is well known information at this point.
