American cars are struggling in China, and it may only get tougher for automakers. One company that has seen its share of struggles in the Chinese market is Ford. The company arrived late to China, it had a less than an ideal partnership, and difficulty keeping up with the competitive Chinese market left Ford in the dust behind its rivals. The company said earlier in 2019 that it has a plan to catch up to its competitors.

The main reason is that chinese boycott American product thanks to trade war. That is why Japanese and German car increase market share but only American car losing share.

The decline is probably due in part to the real estate bubble in the interior of the country which is driven by public shell companies.

I know that Buick is really big in China and it’s seen as very premium brand like Mercedes. Buick really is loosing that old people drive them reputation in the US.

Because it is an American brand in a world where German brand comes on top. Compound that with the current trade war, do you honestly think Chinese would love to buy em?

Traditional U.S; automakers are losing ground in part because the Chinese are waiting for the first Teslas to roll off the assembly line.

In China we do have a lot of people love America cars who are spare parts dealers.
Bunny Month ago
why? Easy. Because of Trump. If you want to wage a trade war with China, then it will hurt the chinese, so the chinese strike back and hurt american businesses.

They don't need a truck in China. They don't go to lowe's and buy a load of material to fix their house, they hire all that done. It is also hard to park a car in China, almost impossible to park a truck.

Ford will merge or go bankrupt in next 3 years imho. Stock now a tiny $9.

Ford is a much better value than any European car. Volkswagens and Peugeot are crap. BMW, Mercedes too expensive for what you get.

American car companies, like American banks, like American airlines, cant "compete" without Corporate Socialism. Sorry guys, the governments of foreign nations arent gonna bail you out, not gonna craft legislation to benefit, and not gonna give you a handout. You gotta Actually Compete. Thats how actual Capitalism works.

China is investing in electric cars based largely on the United States ability to limit China's oil production and usage.

you see, the problem is we never want find our own problem. we can we make it better quality? more reliable ? instead we just want build engine light up cars and want sell it expensive. lazy and greedy can never go a long way. I remember my first car was 85k miles Chrysler, it broke down in 4 months. then I got a 110k miles Toyota, it lasts another 3and half years. consumers are not stupid. PLEASE DO A BETTER JOB INSTEAD OF CRYING AND BLAME OTHERS ! ! !! ! ! !

The Chinese are stupid ( small brain ) and easy to cheat. If you attach Chinese no.1 or Xi Jinping initials to the car grill, It will sell right away.

You think Chinese market should appreciate US made vehicles, but your president Trump keeps bad mouthing China and loves all sorts of modern wars with China. So many anti China emotions, yet still 90+ household items made in China. Talking about Chinese made Crap and talking about Made American Great Again, yet still wearing these hats made in China. Now the new Ford Mustang would be made in China and Mexico. What an irony.

My very first car is a Ford Mondeo 1.8TD. Bought second hand with 100 thousand kilometers under her wheels. I kept the car for about 4 years and never had any major issue with this vehicle. Well, it is however not an American car.

Some American brands are perceived to have less quality compared to a Chinese Brand. Too much time on fixing. I mean Jeep.

Because in traditional American company fashion, they spent all their money on big fat corporate bonuses every year kissing their own ass, instead of R&D, and labor. There, now u don't have to watch the propaganda crap 😒

For middle class Chinese, Japanese car is cheaper and better than American’s. My father’s car is RAV4 For High class chinese, their eyes are looking on European car. There is not much space for Ford.
