9689 sales for Lincoln!!! Excellent!

Also this:
Lincoln sales were up 11 percent in March, while average transaction prices for the brand were up more than $2,100 – almost four times the rate of growth of the overall luxury segment.
Much of the growth came from 6,428 Lincoln SUV sales – a 28 percent gain. First-quarter Lincoln SUV sales increased 27 percent, marking Lincoln SUVs best sales performance for March and the first quarter since 2001

Impressive start for the year.
Utility sales rule the roost.
Mustang is still a loud and proud with 12.5K units.
MKX is a solid base hit so far, seeing them everywhere, helping add to nearly 10K units for Lincoln.

Fleet for Ford = Bad

Fleet for GM = Good

Still cannot understand that logic.

Utilities are clearly hot and Ford has the upper hand there. NO big secret.

Cadillac should be ready to finally increase sales, with the CT6 being launched soon. Right?!? I mean, we have been hearing for years how the Alpha chassis is perfection reincarnate, with God's own hands gracing it's execution. And it has done wonders for Camaro sales.......errrr, well.....anyway, good times.

Hey cos, I sent you a PM.

And this is for the site admin or mods, but can we fix the software so that it alerts you of PM's? All I see is a notification count, and unless I recall my last count, I have to click on it to see if there is new PM. Or I am using it wrong?
