    04 Jul 2018

    Because of low gas prices, people are trading their small cars for large trucks and SUVs.

Automotive News reports that through May 2018, trucks outsold cars by two-to-one.  Automakers like Ford are changing their strategies, killing off small sedans and hatchbacks to focus on SUVs and mid-size trucks.

  • People Want Small Cars, But Automakers Stopped Selling Them
    18 Jun 2018

That’s what happened in 2017 when gas prices dropped and small cars were traded into dealers on large cars and trucks. Now, oil prices are rising and Automotive News reports that people want their small cars back.  But due to a lack of supply used prices are currently rising on small cars.

  • Trump Tariffs May Cost Carmakers 1 Million Auto Sales a Year
    12 Jun 2018

    If president Donald Trump slaps a 25 percent tariff on imported cars, it may cost the U.S auto industry 1 million annual car sales, and that’s just the low end of the estimated damage. The projection by researcher LMC Automotive assumes that automakers would absorb at least half the cost of a tax on imported vehicles.  If companies pass the full 25 percent cost on to consumers, it could snuff out about 2 million sales or more than 10 percent of annual U.S. deliveries. President’s order last month to investigate auto imports for potential trade penalties on national securi...

  • Auto Dealers Fear That Good Times Are Over As Interest Rates Rise
    11 Jun 2018

    For car dealers, a sunny sales outlook at the start of 2018 has been overshadowed by rising interest rates, shrinking customer budgets and cost increases. Their optimism for the next quarter lost 14 points to just 56 on a 100-point scale, according to the Cox Automotive Dealer Sentiment Index.  The report, based on a survey of more than 1,000 independent and franchise car dealers from April 30 to May 14, shows prospective buyers grappling with tight finances despite a Republican tax cut that many sales executives had expected to boost consumer spending. The biggest challenges they re...
