Ford F-150 sales are TANKING almost as fast as Ford Stock.
If only Ford had a normal, hybrid, and plugin hybrid version of this car below and many other cars for sale in North America at this time to offset sales losses in SUVs/Pickups/CUVs.

Yeah, I'm sure Ford is really regretting that they're selling $60k F-Series than a $16k Focus that's not profitable at all lol

But lets take a look how well those "popular" smaller cars are selling so far this year ...

Corolla -35%
Camry -22%
Civic -33%
Accord -11%
Sentra -27%
Elantra -15%
Sonata -62%
K5 -22%
Forte -11%

Should I keep going?

Sales are tanking since the gubinmint Covid dough has dried out long time ago. People have to actually go to work to pay for them. Now if the semiconductor shortages and other supply chain issues would get resolved, we could hopefully get back to normal situation with vehicle prices.

Impreza -4%
Legacy -12%
Jetta -52%
Mazda3 -5%

Literally every single compact and mid-size car had drop in sales except for Nissan Altima (I'm guessing Enterprise placed a large order).
Isn't that because parts and computer chips are scarce?
I don't know ... just asking.

Why not? One F-150 sold is more profitable than 50 Fusions and Focuses. Why would they sell cheap vehicles with almost non-existing profit margin?

You are a confused man contradicting himself.

I didn't write that.

The point of my comment is that sales don't matter - what matters is how much profit you bring per sale. Ford is better off financially by selling 500,000 F-Series than selling 5,000,000 Fusions and Focuses.

Well, apparently it's not helping. Ford is still not a big brand.

LMFAO, most of the vehicles you posted have MUCH MUCH higher demand this year than last and can't meet the demand because of supply chain and chip shortage issues.
Many Pickups, SUVs, and CUVs have a GENUINE decrease in demand because of high gas prices. The PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING. Toyota Sells tons of cars in North America, and Ford doesn't let's see who's going to have a better year.

Used car prices are OUTPERFORMING used Truck/SUV/CUV prices by a GIGANTIC margin.
People don't want trucks/suvs/cuvs anymore (unless they're hybrid or electric), they want gas sipping cars.
Compact cars are the HOTTEST segment in the used car industry right now with prices going up almost 1% per week. Wholesale prices in the car segment were up 0.38% overall last week while Wholesale prices in the used Truck/Suv/Cuv/Van segment were DOWN 0.02% last week.

Oh I see, compact and midsize cars have a big decline in sales due to "supply chain and chip shortage issues" only, but F-150 doesn't have a problem with supply chain and/or chip shortage, right? Decline in F-150s sales are caused by other reasons, but not due to "supply chain and chip shortage issues".

Dude, just because you're cheap and buy your cars based on fuel economy numbers only doesn't mean everybody is lol. Enjoy your boring Prius and I hope you saved $2.50 at the pump today lol

LOOOOOL trucks are only top 3 best selling vehicles in the whole country. Only 4 out of 20 best selling vehicles are cars - the rest are all trucks/SUVs/crossovers.
