Recouping savings because I had to spend $5k on a new zero turn last month.


As far as the topic. I am not sure why how much each one is selling matters that much other than bragging rights for your favorite manufacturer. It depends on how you want to look at it. If you want to look at brands only, then Ford wins. If you want to look at all full size truck from the dealer groups then the GM wins. I a not sure if these numbers include mid size trucks. You can also stretch this out past just US sales and look at global sales which Ford will likely win due to how popular the Ranger is globally. But as a I said, it is just for fan boy bragging rights.

I believe one thing that is helping GM right now is their deep incentives they started in February after Chevy fell below Ram in January. They were practicality giving them away around here. Another thing that may have also led to these numbers is the fact that Ford's fleet purchases(which they heavily rely on) are probably really low right now because many fleets may be holding on to trucks instead of getting new ones because of all the uncertainty. Just my opinion based on what we are seeing at our 120+ dealerships nationwide.

No, I don't think the F650/F750 are in those numbers according to this Q1 sales release from Ford.

F-Series 186,562
Ranger 20,980
E-Series 10,098
Transit 36,836
Transit Connect 7,565
Heavy trucks 1,716
Ford Trucks 263,757

Ford Q1 2020 Sales Release

Although, Ford counts their vans as trucks as well in this since that is how they are categorized by the EPA and NHTSA which matters more over public opinion.

Since the thread derailed almost instantly......$5k, zero turn? You got off easy!
Those things are like gold up here, and never any good used ones that someone doesn’t want like $500less than new for...
I’m rockin a probably 30 year old Exmark walk behind for the front yard and places the big mower won’t get and a 20+ year old Ferris 60” zt rider. Took a long time to find both and for what $3k I’m into them, they’re great. But it would be a $15k + bill to replace them both in kind .
Nice part is, I (I really mean the kids) can knock off 5ac of mowing in about 4 manhours!

This is not the first time GM's combined sales exceeded Ford. What's really surprising is how many Chevy trucks outsold Ram compared to the previous numbers.

It really isn't that surprising to me if the rest of the US GM dealers had the same kind of rebates that GM dealers had around here in February. They were offering up to $6,500 of dollars cash back on top of 0% interest for up to 84 months plus no payments for 120 days on 1500s. That is pretty deep.

Yeah same around here GM was basically giving the trucks away up to 12k off and 0% for 84 months...I know Ford never came close to half that (usually around 7.9% for 84 months and around 2k off) nor did RAM that that I know of....what I find funny is the local GM dealers selling the old body style as 2020 classic editions...I have a Ford yes so I do have some bias as GM has burned me in the past twice and never will a 3rd time....but I'd choose a Ford or RAM equally any day it would just be who had the best tool and deal at the time I was looking for a new truck.

As for the way people spend their $ needing or not needing the stimulus check everyone lives differently and has a different philosophy on how to live life... I in my mid 40s have always from what I think have a great balance on spending and saving...but in my early 40's being diagnosed with cancer (free of it now) kinda changed my outlook on that a bit...save for retirement? I do just not like I use to who knows If I will make it there. Every day is a gamble. I know so many people who saved their entire life never took vacations etc to retire at 58 and at 61 they end up passing away....we can purchase anything we want in life by means of cash credit loans etc but one thing NOONE can buy is time

So when there's a spike in sales that must mean that manufacturer is giving big discounts...etc...
