Focus, F-Series shine for Ford in February 2012 sales
Ford Motor Company showed an overall year over year growth of 14.4% in February 2012 sales, with almost 180,000 vehicles sold placing them second, behind just General Motors in terms of US sales and almost 20,000 units ahead of Toyota. For the year, Ford Motor Company is up 11.2% over the first two months of 2011.
Ford’s growth in February 2012 was led by the luxury Lincoln brand with 6,912 vehicles sold giving them a 16.2% increase over last February. Lincoln was led in growth by the flagship MKS, which moved 857 units for an improvement of 50.9%. The Lincoln MKZ was second in growth with an improvement of 40.1% and the full sized Navigator sport utility vehicle was third in growth with a jump of 34.2%. in terms of sales volume, the MKZ was the top model from Ford’s luxury division with 2,487 midsized sedans sold last month. The Lincoln MKX was second in terms of sales units with 2,168 midsized crossovers sold (+32.5%) and the MKS was third in terms of sales with 857 units sold. The MKS will likely benefit from the midcycle refresh that debuted at the 2011 LA Auto Show once those new models begin hitting showrooms around the country.
