The Ford Authority Take

Ford Argentina sales maintained the negative performance in August, representing the eighth consecutive month of contractions suffered by Ford in the South American country. However, the 2,783 new Fords sold in August was slightly higher than the 2,661 units delivered in July.

Among the overwhelming amount of negative figures is the healthy growth of Ford Transit, both in August and during the first eight months of the year. It’s also worth noting that Ranger has reinforced its position as the brand’s best-selling model in Argentina, surpassing the subcompact Ka for the first time in the year-to-date sales.

Ford Territory

Also worthy of noting is that the new Ford Territory saw its first 22 sales in August in the Argentine market. The compact crossover of Chinese origins is just now being launched in South America.
