Ford on Pace to Sell 1 Million F-Series Pickups

07-ford-f-350-2018-cc
 

Just in case you missed it, Ford is having a pretty good year with F-Series pickup truck sales almost 5 percent above 2017's previous historic highs.

According to Automotive News (subscription required), Ford is on a pace to sell close to, if not more than, 1 million half-ton and heavy-duty full-size pickups by the end of the year.

Ford sold more than 450,000 F-Series pickups in the first half of 2018; close to 300,000 were F-150s. Given that Ford, according to Automotive News, typically makes 52 percent of its annual pickup sales in the second half of the year, the F-Series seems to be within striking distance of the coveted 1-million-unit annual sales mark.

The economy and the housing market are doing relatively well right now, but with issues like import tariffs, immigration reform (especially as it relates to Mexico) and steadily rising fuel prices, many experts are predicting headwinds for automotive sales during the second half of 2018. Since Ford does not have a new pickup truck scheduled for several more years, some are predicting a sales slowdown for Ford during the second half of the year.

Nevertheless, Ford U.S. sales analyst Erich Merkle said, "F-Series is on a record-setting pace, as first half 2018 sales are running 4.1 percent above 2004’s first half results. [The year] 2004 was a record-setting year for the F-Series with 939,511 pickups sold. While we had a strong second half in 2004, we look forward to the opportunity that is in front of us."

Ford benefitted in 2004 with a strong housing market and economy as well as low fuel prices. Whether Ford will hit 1 million F-Series pickup sales by year end remains to be seen.

HAHA! You two inbreds can't figure out the chart that Branwdo supplied. It shows that GM sold more half tons than FORD. LOL!

@ BA

GMSRGREAT never said they were the same model. He just said that the name Silverado sells the most trucks. Thats all. Which like papajim said. Every Chevy truck whether its a 1500, 2500, 3500. They ALL say Silverado!! Thats what he is saying!

Ford only has an F in front of theirs...and while growing up in school we were all told that having an F meant we didn't succeed or failure!! Lol

The chart shows the F150 is the selling half ton GMS.

It does not show the Silverado 1500 is. Nor the Sierra 1500.

Those are 2 different trucks.

“ while growing up in school we were all told that having an F meant we didn't succeed or failure!! Lol “

What? Your comment is failure. You make absolutely no sense and is nonsense.

“ didn’t succeed or failure “???? WTF are you talking about you illiterate fool

@ BA

They are both made by GM and registered as 1500/half ton trucks sold by GM. So GM sells more 1500/ half ton trucks than Ford does

@ Sean

Have an F on your paper! U not get it? If u got an F in school you didn't succeed or you FAILED! Is it that hard to comprehend?//thats what Ford starts all their truck lines with an "F"

Man u slow or what??

What’s failure TNTGMC?

Bankruptcy.

That’s right you idiot. GM failed

@ Fake Sean
Ahh must have hurt some Ford feelings today 😂!! Now they've got to post under my name LMFAO...poor guys

@ fake Sean
Feelings get hurt and lose their man hood...p*ssy hurts so bad they have to change there name 😂

@ TNTGMC

With arguments like your latest. It’s no wonder you’re a joke around here

@ fake Sean or leach or whomever u are

It was all out of good fun.. I never once insulted anyone else. Yet you come on and get butt hurt and spew insults

Go to bed and get some sleep it looks like u take stuff to personal like your friend Frank!//geezzz

ummm and my arguments are all backed up by facts!!

Gm sold more half ton trucks than ford

That all Chevy trucks say Silverado.... You lose man....go to sleep

Yes you did.

I lied hahaha!

@gms
You are half right.
Ford does not claim the F 150 as best selling.
Ford claims F Series as best selling.
The Ford F Series out sells Silverado(all model) and Sierra(all models) combined.
As for the Silverado name game you persist in, the 1500, is a different model than the 2500HD &3500HD.

ha @ fake TNTGMC

And now the leach is impostering me.......what a clown.

Gets upset and becomes an imposter. What a gutless clown

I'm going to bed. Spineless tool

BA, I'm glad you participate one here. It shows that even somebody that scores 400 on the SAT's can be part of the dialog here. Keep it up little buddy. You should apply for a job at Ford. They would probably hire you to design their engines.

GM sells trucks.
Ford sells trucks.
GM sells more trucks.
Class dismissed!
