Ford starts out 2012 with a year over year gain
2012 will prove to be an interesting year for the folks at Ford Motor Company, for the first time in decades, the automaker begins a year with just two brands under their company crest. Although Mercury was mostly a lame duck in 2011, the middle child brand did move some units but in 2012 – FoMoCo will rely strictly on the success of their Ford and Lincoln brands. To some, this might seem like a bad thing but in reality, Ford hasn’t lost brands so much as they have trimmed some unwanted and unneeded fat (sorry Mercury fans!).
