The Ford Authority Take

After experiencing a drastic rise in April, Ford Chile sales suffered a slight decrease in the low single digits for May. The Blue Oval contracted in the Chilean market and significantly reduced its inter-monthly volume, going from 1,300 units sold the previous month to just over a thousand.

Ford Chile’s slight contraction in May was caused by slower sales of models such as the Ford Territory and the Ford F-Series, with both losing a significant volume of 80 units year-over-year. This is combined with the relatively low popularity of other nameplates like the Ford Escape, Bronco Sport, and Maverick, which have failed to stand out in their respective segments.

In contrast, the best-selling Ford Ranger posted a healthy increase over the past month and continued to hold its thanks to the arrival of the redesigned model. The Ford Transit also performed well in May, although volume remained modest at below 100 units.
