Overall Ford sales fell 33 percent to 433,869 vehicles during the second quarter of 2020 as the Dearborn-based automaker as well as the auto industry at large navigated a precarious landscape riddled by challenges stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Automakers also faced shortages of key vehicles as production was idled in March until May. Pickup trucks were hit the hardest, creating a scarcity of the popular vehicles. Production resumed on a limited basis in May with new procedures and processes in place designed to keep workers safe and plants operating. The recommencement of production has not been without hurdles, as COVID-19 cases have been reported in a handful of Ford plants, causing The Blue Oval to temporarily close the plants for cleaning and disinfecting.

  1. FYI…if you add the Silverado and Sierra sales together, they are currently ahead of Ford F series so far this year.
