The Ford Authority Take

The promising uptick in Ford pickup sales last quarter can be largely attributed to the Super Duty line of heavy duty pickups, likely in part due to increased interest in the refreshed 2023 model. In fact, Super Duty production has been on the rise lately to pace demand, ensuring that buyers with their names in the books finally get their pickups. Even so, it’s worth noting that Super Duty production was taken offline several times as FoMoCo took steps to boost quality off the assembly line. The refreshed Super Duty only began shipping to customers back in May.

The highly popular Maverick, meanwhile, saw its production skyrocket in May 2023, and FoMoCo added a third shift at the Hermosillo Assembly plant to increase availability of the compact pickup in the future. However, despite the boost in production, it may not be enough to keep up with demand, and it’s safe to assume that its sales figures would be much higher if not for ongoing supply chain issues.

The Ranger, meanwhile, saw its sales decline, likely due to FoMoCo’s decision to prioritize production of the Ford Bronco over that of the Ranger, as both models are produced at the Ford Michigan Assembly plant. Additionally, the 2023 model year marked the final for the pickup’s current generation, and it’s likely that its sales will increase along with interest in the next-generation pickup, which entered production in August 2023.

Overall, things are looking up when it comes to Ford pickup sales, indicating that the automaker is recovering from production issues that stemmed from the COVID-19 pandemic, although pickup sales may end up being impacted by the ongoing UAW strike in Q3 2023.

    I finally received vin #’s for the two king ranch’s I orderd in July. about time Ford.

    I bought a new loaded ’23 F-150 Tremor off an out of state dealer’s lot at the end of July. The deal seemed almost too good to be true and, unfortunately, it was. Had some pretty disgusting issues with the delivery but all of that has now been resolved by my local dealer. Let’s just say dealer prep left a lot to be desired. In the end it all worked out and I got what I believe is an awesome truck for a really good price.

    What’s wild is all I see is unsold f150s on the lots. Maybe super duty is pulling the numbers up, or the large number of fleet trucks being sold.

    All my local dealers have a stockpile of lariats and platinums and king ranches they can’t sell. Too much money and too high of interest rates, and we are in a pretty well off area.

      Same around me, F-150s everywhere. People are starting to realize they should just get a mid-size in most situations, or even a compact like a Maverick.

      People that are serious about towing/trailering are moving to HDs.
