    Ford Division Sales_03-2020

    Ford should report March sales tomorrow but it won't be pretty, even though the first two weeks of March were somewhat normal until the COVID-19 pandemic became an issue along with the states that issued "stay-in-place" orders. The sales numbers for certain models also reflect the lack of Ford incentives.

    Production Week Scheduling Timetable

    Ford is delaying the restart of production at its North America plants to help protect its workers. The company had been aiming to restart production April 6 at Hermosillo Assembly Plant and April 14 at several key U.S. plants – and now has further postponed startup dates, which will be announced later.
  4. Thanks for the offer but we have enough inventory to last a while thanks to COVID-19 and CT's directive allowing online sales only!
  5. Absolutely, considering the Comfort Package includes a Heated Steering Wheel and Heated 1st & 2nd Row Seats. The Market Sales Mix the Comfort Package option for our area is 50% according to Ford which is low based on our sales history for the option and the calls we get from other dealerships looking for XLT units with the option. I've attached pricing examples for the XLT's with #200A vs. #202A for comparison pricing. Preview Order 2004 - K8D - XLT 4WD_Redacted.pdf Preview Order 2027 - K8D - XLT 4WD_Redacted.pdf
  6. Our store would take every XLT with the #200A and Comfort Package we could get. Problem is getting units scheduled with the Comfort Package which has become a commodity issue due to demand.

  9. We've had a few Aviator's come in to our dealership and every one, except for one, was Blue Diamond. The exception was being driven by a Ford Credit manger and it was Ceramic Pearl which didn't do anything for the vehicle.
