The above headline isn't a biased opinion, it comes straight from Ford's sales figures. While the car numbers tanked in September waiting for fresh blood, truck sales were up a staggering amount. Ford sold 99,720 F-series trucks, that includes the all-new F-150, in September, a 22 percent increase from last year. That number is pretty much the only thing keeping Ford from certain doom. Ford sales overall for September were 282,656. That includes all cars and trucks from Ford, Mercury, Lincoln, Jaguar, Volvo and Land Rover. Why is that blowing my mind? Because, according to my rudimentary math skills, the F-series accounted for over one third of their total sales. Amazing. In the same release we see Jaguar tanking completely and Volvo selling a lot of the new S40s while the rest of the family eagerly awaits new models to boost the line-up.
