    Ford is now below GM, Toyota, Honda and Stellantis in sales. They should have stockpiled chips instead of overreacting by cancelling their orders. Management is at fault once again.

  2. Peter

    Dear Richard and others,
    Can we copy paste this article for the next couple of months please?
    Ford management is living a dream that one day will turn out as a nightmare but they don’t care at all.
    Ford Europe, once leader is now even behind Toyota sales… the reason? Outdated range, design failures, SUV focus and no answer to replace the Mondeo/S-MAX or Galaxy.
    What do we see in the US and A as Borat would say?
    The Focus on SUV is failing, the Edge and Ecosport are out of date whereas the hope, the Escape can’t catch even older rivals… hello Fusion owners, please buy Japanese!!!
    Pick-up trucks? Yes, we’ve a big choice and there’s the chip shortage but come on, it’s not the success that Detroit wants.
    Of course, I’m standing on the sideline BUT Ford management needs to think as the situation is getting worse and in the eighties the Taurus saved Ford, a f******** amazing car.
    Read my lips, cars WILL save Ford one day again and increase sales.
    Invest in the Focus for Americans, bring over the Evos, even as an estate.
    AND, use the Explorer base (noticed that this car never won a comparison test?) for the new generation of Mustang as a 2 door, convertible and 4 door SALOON.
    Lincoln should launch a Tesla Model S competitor once they turn 101, pretty sure it’s necessary to regain credibility but yet again, who am I? Anyway, any company with such sales figures will sooner or later fire some senior managers, don’t replace them and listen to real Ford drivers instead or just drive around in the USA and look around, plenty of Camry, Civic etc around.

  3. Steve 300

    Ford was low on chips but, also, survives mainly because of trucks and Van’s & wouldn’t generally be the number 1 US brand without them.
    Right now it lacks top ten hits unlike Honda, Toyota, GM and gave up healthy market share with Fusion handing it to Hyundai and Honda.
    Ford is now the Detroit small fry with Stellantis poised for growth by likely selling either Opel or Peugeot rebadges through Chrysler brand and possibly Dodge not to mention Grand Cherokee L and Wagoneer.
    Ford will end up part of VW if things don’t improve.
