    Ford November 2015 Sales Overview

    Ford November U.S. sales totaled 187,794 vehicles, up 0.4 percent over the 187,000 vehicles old in November of 2014. This result was completed with 2 fewer selling days (23) compared to November of 2014 (25) as well.

    Year to date, the iconic brand has sold 2,373,920 vehicles, up 5.4 percent over the 2,260,271 sold through the same period of 2014.

    Ford November 2015 Brand Sales Highlights

    F-Series sales reached 65,192 trucks in November, up 10.4 percent over the 59,049 sold in November of 2014.

    Year to date, the Truck Series has been picked up by 695,143 new owners, up 2.3 percent over the 679,496 sold through the same period of 2014. Most Automakers selling in the U.S. that sell far less profitable offerings do not match the sales levels of the F-Series by itself!

    Ford commercial van sales increased 59 percent, with 17,815 vehicles sold last month. November’s van performance marked Ford’s best November sales month since 1984. The all-new Transit sales totaled 9,584, almost doubling year-ago sales. Transit Connect sales of 4,237 vans reached best-ever November sales, a 94 percent increase.

    A few more tidbits on the 2017 Super Duty from the Floor of the 2015 Phoenix Auto Show last week.

    2017 Ford F-1250


    Ford had their aluminum bodied 2017 Ford F-250 on display. The floor rep stated that the chassis will consist of > 95% HSS. All told, it is more than 300 pounds lighter than the current Gen!

    An all-new, fully boxed frame comprised of more than 95 percent high-strength steel that is up to 24 times stiffer than the previous frame – enabling the most towing and hauling capability ever delivered by Super Duty. The new truck line features heavier-duty four-wheel-drive components, driveline, axles and towing hardware.

    For the first time, the Super Duty body uses high-strength aluminum alloy body.

    Can't wait to drive this beast with the 6.7L Power Stroke that will arrive with more than 900 lb-ft of torque. That is right, more than 900!

    It will be very interesting to see the payload data on the 2017 Super Duty.

    Also, by beefing up the axles ect. there may be less torque management to slow things down off the line.

    And WOW what a sweet looking truck.

    Hi e90 Diesel:

    I suspect it will be big given the lightweight aluminum body and almost entirely HSS frame below.

    Hi All:

    Just heard a rumor from an insider that the next gen Super Duty's 6.7L Power Stroke will have 1,000 lb-ft of torque and it will be mated to a 10-speed AT.

    Not sure it will ever be able to tow 40,000 pounds but Ford has apparently had enough being the bridesmaid to RAM for the past three years.

    Still just rumors but this should make the Ford booth at the Detroit Auto Show next month a very very busy place.
