Highlights:

Thanks to the all-new F-150 and F-150 PowerBoost, F -Series retail share expanded an estimated 3 percentage points in the full-size pickup segment.
  • Sales of the first all-new F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid totaled 7,176 pickups in Q1, with March providing the trucks best performance to-date – up 110 percent compared to February. PowerBoost days-to-turn on dealer lots was just 14 days. Overall F-Series pickups were up 9.2 percent overall and 24.5 percent at retail.
  • F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid sales jumped 110 percent in March compared to February making March its best sales performance since launch. Ford sold 7,176 F-150 PowerBoost Hybrids in the first quarter, with 3,949 sold in the month of March.

Apparently the didn't make any money on cars so they stopped making them. The main thing is to see how many they can convert to SUVS/Trucks.

I don't care about Ford's sales numbers as much as my specific sale number...which at 3+ months and no VIN#. Picked up the chip-related news on factory shutdowns in Dearborn and KC yesterday along with a big sigh... December order: I'm thinking June delivery.

I had the same thought. Made and sold over 200,000 trucks, but can’t make the truck I ordered in September and that has been stuck in production for over 6 weeks now. Clearly they can make trucks - apparently more than they have ever made. But can’t make mine...

I hear you and share your pain. 3 months and they were scheduled to build mine next week, the very week when they begin their shut-down. My only solace is that these delays give Ford Engineers a bit more time to fix their software and manufacturing issues (like rust inhibiting paints). Call me naïve, but its all I've got. ;)

The writing is on the wall for every brand.
People just aren’t buying cars like they used to.
Trucks and various SUV’s are in.
