Despite Harvey, Ford F-Series sales up 15% for August

New 2018 Ford F-150

Hurricane Harvey’s effects are still being felt across Texas and Louisiana, and the industry is expecting a loss of sales as a result. But that hasn’t stopped America’s best-selling vehicle, the Ford F-Series, from gaining 15% in the month of August.

For August, Ford sold 77,007 F-Series pickup trucks. Ford doesn’t break down those numbers between Super Duty and the F-150, we’re sure some of the gain is a result of the 2018 F-150 hitting dealerships.

High trim level Super Duty pickup trucks accounted for 53% of sales last month, meaning the King Ranch, Lariat, and Platinum trims. These sales boost the average transaction price of Ford F-Series to $45,600 per vehicle. That’s up $3,400 versus 2016.

Overall, Ford sales were ultimately down 2.1% for the month of August.
