2018 Lincoln Navigator Deliveries Begin in November; Lincoln Sales Decline 5.5% Year-Over-Year
Lincoln Motor Company delivered sales totaling 8,909 vehicles in November, down 5.5% from 9,429 vehicles delivered in November 2016. The overall decline was largely due to a down month across the board for Lincoln cars, while SUV sales were generally more positive.
Leading the way in terms of volume for Lincoln was the MKX SUV, which was recently announced as being replaced by the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus. Sales of the MKX were up 6.9% at 2,619 vehicles, and to-date sales are up 2.2% at 28,055 vehicles. The introduction of the Nautilus, which receives Lincoln’s new signature face and an exclusive Lincoln Black Label theme, is slated for summer of next year.
