Ford Motor Co. sales dip 13 percent in April 2007.

Meanwhile, despite respectable sales of its new crossovers, Ford Motor Co. today reported a 13 percent U.S. sales decrease in April compared to a year ago.

Dearborn-based Ford sold 228,623 vehicles during the month, compared to 262,722 in April 2006.

Ford sold 9,134 of its new Edge crossover, and 2,901 of its Lincoln MKX in the quarter.

Year-to-date, Ford's U.S. sales also are down 13 percent, at 871,583 vehicles compared to the cumulative total this time in 2006.

***

This news does not bode well for Ford, and is probably impacting future model releases.

Ford has publicly stated it will take at least two years to turnaround and to expect losses this entire year. 08 Bullitt is not going to be heard from until the leaves turn. Think history repeating itself. It has always been slated for a 08.5 release. Ordering opening sometime in November with first delivery in January. Wouldn't surprise me if the first one produced was auctioned at Barrett Jackson. Mark Fields seems to really like showing off new cars there.

BTW there are 4 Bullitt specific parts in the Ford parts system already. Grill, hood, faux gas cap, sill plates. More to follow.

With Ford's enormous down-sizing, shouldn't available vehicles and total sales volumes be a bit lower?

And will Ford continue to ride the Mustang full-out or cut back on a car like the Bullitt to bring out higher performance cars like the Mach, the Boss and the Cobra?
