The Ford Authority Take

After suffering a setback and falling 25 percent in September, Ford Chile sales recovered and increased healthily again in October. However, last month’s record once again marks a new inter-monthly volume reduction, going from 1,541 in August, to 1,244 in September and 1,192 in October.

Ford Chile’s improvement of exactly 100 units in October was supported by the solid performance of the Ford F-Series, with the line of full-size pickups leading sales in its category for the second consecutive month in the Chilean market. Heavy-duty trucks also had figures in the green, but with minimal volume.

In contrast, the best-selling Ford Ranger again suffered a notable drop last month that reduced its volume and caused it to lose the momentum of previous months. The mid-size pickup is transitioning in the Chilean market from the previous generation to the completely redesigned model.
