Ford Motor Company has released the result of its sales of the Ford F-Series for the 2019 model year. The F-Series was again America’s best-selling truck for the 43rd straight year and for the 38th straight year America’s bestselling vehicle. With the addition of Ranger, Ford pickups produced their best sales results since 2005, with a total of 986,097 pickups sold.
Ford truck sales for the year, including pickups and vans, climbed 9.1% with more than 1.24 million trucks sold. In the fourth-quarter, Ford’s overall truck sales closed strong, increasing by 15.9%. It was Ford’s best overall fourth-quarter truck sales result since 2001.
As for the fourth-quarter official numbers, Ford trucks made up almost 55% of sales for the automaker. The company also sold 208,387 SUVs/CUVs during the fourth-quarter, which made up about 35% of the automaker’s sales. Passenger cars sales total for the quarter only accumulated to 63,400 vehicles leaving lots. That is barely 10% of the company’s sales, showing again the decline in the passenger car market for the Big-3 automakers in the American market.
F-Series had a total of 896,526 vehicles leave dealer showrooms in 2019. That was a decrease of 1.4% over the official numbers of 2018.
With an updated F-150 on the way and the updated Super Duty just starting to fill out inventories, Ford Motor Company is hoping with the addition of the Ranger, the company will achieve over a million units for 2020. It would be a hell of a way to start out the new decade.
