The Ford Ranger 2017 has again topped the sales charts with over 3769 vehicles sold in the month of September, 2017.
In 2017 the Ford Ranger has experienced a large growth on last years sales by a respectable 43.7% for the Month of September when compared to 2016. Ford are planning on continued growth in sales of the Ford Ranger and expect to see another increase in sales in 2018.
A total of 36,620 Ford Ranger variants have been sold this year alone which is up on last years figures by a respectable 21 per cent.
The Rival Brand Toyota Hilux ended the September month in 2nd position with 2907 sales and Mitsubishi Triton in third with 1532 sales.
According to the September VFACTS report, pick-up and cab-chassis 4×4 LCVs were the growth segments for new-car sales – alongside small and medium SUVs.
Compared to September 2016, the 4×4 LCV segment was up 11 per cent.
In fact, the SUV and LCV segments account for 58.6 per cent of sales so far in 2017, up from 56.3 per cent at the same time last year.
“With its locally led design and engineering, we’re immensely proud that Australian customers’ feedback has allowed us to deliver a line-up of Ranger models that not only offer class-leading towing and strong payload capabilities, but also offer the safety and comfort to make them extremely liveable everyday vehicles,” said Greg Davidson, Sales Director of Ford Australia.
The market as a whole had fewer LCVs and SUVs sold when compared to last years September figures.
“Any month over 100,000 total sales has to be seen as a strong outcome, proving there is continued value for the consumer out in the market,” said Tony Weber, chief executive of the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI).
“To keep this outcome in perspective, it has to be remembered that the September results of 2015 and 2016 were both very strong, and both those years ended in records.”
