Manufacturers like Ford generally don't want that kind of sales data shared or broken down,
you're lucky to get classes 4 to 7 break down but no split on vehicles ( eg F-450 vs E-450).
A lot of that now considered commercially sensitive yet, GM has started splitting out
it's 1500s from HD and MD. I was kind of hoping that Ford and Ram would follow that.
Interesting that dealers near you have some MDs as floor stock, that is a little perculiar,
maybe there were some loose trucks available with popular configurations...
Ice and JP- thx for responses- I'm still confused. I always thought a "fleet" order was a "done deal"... in other words the term "fleet" to me says it is a committed order with a customer name on it.
I know my local dealer now has a 650 7.3 chassis, A 650 PS all set up with a 4-6 yd dump and a 750 V-10 set up with a dump. Plus there are at least 3 650's at other dealerships set up with dump bodies and another 650 chassis. There were also two 750 Dumps in one of the last "rags" but new edition indicates only one so one apparent sale of a stock truck.
Sure do miss the monthly stats that HDT used to publish.
I still think there's a lot of reasons to wait if you don't need a car right away, and no x-plan seals the deal for me. The 2021 already looks amazing... so just think what's around the corner with Warthog and who knows what else ford can come up with in the next 3 years?
New options and features, more paint choices, white tops maybe? And by then the aftermarket should be churning out some really cool stuff too.
Alex D -- We have redeemed thousands of dollars in rewards since inception of the Ford Pass Reward program. The current tire rebate program offers a $70 prepaid credit card or $150 in Ford Pass Rewards points; the majority of our customers are opting for the Ford Pass Rewards points (as a bonus, they also earn points for the tire purchase). The Ford Pass app and the Ford Pass Rewards systems can be buggy (Ford has the worst IT in existence) but the redemption process has been excellent to date. When it works, it really is a wonderful loyalty program.
Biden has said he wants to ban fracking and wants to kill the oil industry.
Crude oil occurs naturally and is an excellent base for lubricants, fuel, plastics, etc.
Does the UAW that endorsed him or the people working at automotive companies that produce cars and trucks that use oil know Biden is legislating opposite our jobs and industry?
If they do how stupid can a person be?
