Ford Sold a Crapload of Trucks Again!

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty King Ranch FX4

Reporting on Ford truck sales figures is the ultimate test of a writer’s redundancy. Why? Because Ford sells a lot of pickup trucks! Last year, they sold a new F-Series truck every 43 seconds, and that was with slower production due to the new F-150 retooling.

For February 2015, Ford showed a healthy increase in F-Series sales, up 7% over this month last year. Ford attributes that to strong F-150 sales. It should be noted, though, that Ford doesn’t breakdown their sales by F-150, F-250, etc… but rather reports as F-Series as a whole.

Utilities saw an increase as well, sales of the all-new Transit is up 30% over this time last year. That’s not surprising, considering the Transit was in its infancy last year. The Transit is a noticeably better vehicle than the E-Series van it replaces, so it’s not surprisingly there’s pent up demand for that vehicle.

Explorer sales were also up a healthy 32% over last year. This is surprising to us, considering the new 2016 model has already been announced, but people seem to really like the Explorer.

Trucks and utilities might be the top sellers for the company, but overall total retail sales for Ford was down 2% last month over the previous year.

Stay tuned next month when we probably report the same, strong F-Series sales again!
