In the midst of this crazy winter and the unrelenting Polar Vortex, we at Hassett Auto managed to make it through February with good news. Our Ford, Lincoln, and Subaru brands posted sales increases over last year’s reports for the same month.
For Ford, it was the trusty F-Series that was the bearer of good news. The sale of 55,882 trucks marked the best February report the truck has seen in eight years.
In addition, Lincoln sales were up 36 percent compared to the number of vehicles sold during the same period last year.
“Sales surged in the final week, providing us momentum after a slow start to the month,” said John Felice, Ford’s vice president of U.S. 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.”
Subaru, not to be outdone, also reported a successful month. The automaker increased sales by 24 percent over sales from the same period last year with the Forester, Outback, and XV Crosstrek leading the charge.
Thank you to all of our loyal customers who contributed to last month’s sales records. We look forward to servicing you soon!
