The Ford Authority Take

After the dramatic drop in February – the first full month after FoMoCo announced plans to cease local manufacturing, Ford Brazil’s sales declined sharply again in March. With this performance, the Blue Oval has now been in the red for 15 months in Brazil, with the negative performance expected to continue throughout the remained of the year.

As was expected, the 70 percent drop experienced in March was led by the loss of sales volume from the Ford Ka and EcoSport, which were manufactured locally in Brazil until January. Meanwhile, the only model that managed to increase sales volume was the Ranger. Imported from Argentina, the midsize pickup truck became Ford’s best-selling vehicle in the Brazilian market for first time in history.

  1. In the first half o April, Ford has sold around 500 Rangers in Brazil, going head-to-head with CAOA-Chery in sales charts. Sad but predictable.
