Ford regains #2 US sales spot from Toyota in August

Here's the article. Truck/SUV sales are still tanking but Ford's cars are doing well enough to partially offset it. It's interesting that Ford was able to regain the #2 spot while still seeing a 12% drop in sales.

So? Truck sales are pretty much tanking for the industry. Gas prices are killing them.

Years ago I never thought I would hope for gas to be 2 bucks a gallon

Yes, you are. Look at the "Year-to-date" side of the chart.

How was Ford able to regain #2 in Aug if they sold less cars than Toyota in Aug?

Mathmatically they must have regained #2 a while ago. In July totals would have been Ford 1673127 and Toyota 1465368

Yeah, I don't quite get it either. That's why I said it was interesting in my original post.

Ford outsold Toyota, Toyota outsold Ford ... is that for 1 month or for entire year.

If its just for year to date, Ford was ahead of Toyota in July too, but everyone said that Toyota outsold Ford.

I agree Zoran. It's very confusing as to exactly who sold how much and for what time frame.

All confusion aside...in the end, the only thing that really matters is the 'Change from 2005' columns.

Same here. I've also been seeing alot of Zephyrs. I have to say that in person they look very nice and the taillights aren't nearly as obnoxious as they look in pics.
