So far, 2016 has been an excellent year for the automotive industry, and the month of March was no exception. March sales were particularly strong for Ford, who even managed to beat its main competition: GM.
In fact, sales for Ford in the United States rose by eight percent, selling 254,711 units, while GM sales only managed to increase by less than one percent. Ford’s luxury Lincoln brand also saw a huge rise in sales, increasing by more than 11 percent.
Specifically, reports say that 37 percent of Ford’s impressive sales were to rental companies, government agencies, and commercial businesses, as companies across the country embrace Ford’s expansive commercial vehicle options.
