As far as the outgoing Mustang is concerned, the Blue Oval company managed to sell 6,410 ponies, surpassing the Chevrolet Camaro (6,211 units) and the Dodge Challenger (3,694 examples).
Moving over to Lincoln, Ford’s luxury brand posted its fifth straight month of positive sales gains after delivering 6,661 vehicles in February. That’s 36 percent increase over the same month last year.
“Sales surged in the final week, providing us momentum after a slow start to the month,” said John Felice, Ford vice president of US marketing, sales and service. “Ford Fusion continued its strong retail sales performance in the West, outpacing the mid-size sedan segment. F-Series and Lincoln also continued to perform well.”
While US sales declined last month, Ford China deliveries went up 67 percent, with 73,040 units. Ford’s passenger car joint venture, Changan Ford Automobile (CAF), sold 53,272 vehicles in February, up 81 percent, while the company’s commercial vehicle investment in China, Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC), moved 16,756 vehicles, up 22 percent.
