Continental, MKZ, MKX Lead Lincoln to Big November Sales Increase
Lincoln sales increased 19.1% year-over-year in November with deliveries totaling 9,429 units. Lincoln’s growth stemmed entirely from the success of the four newest additions to its lineup: the MKC, next-gen MKX, next-gen MKZ, and all-new Continental.

The 2017 Lincoln Continental delivered a total of 1,419 units in November, nearly tripling the total of MKS large sedans sold in November of last year. After less than three months, Continental sales total 3,416 units, making it quite possible that sales of the Continental for 2016 will eclipse those of the vehicle it is replacing with less than a quarter’s worth of work.
Sales of the Lincoln MKZ were up 9.3% at 2,541 units, leading brand sales in terms of volume. The new MKX led the brand in terms of year-over-year growth, up 30.2% with 2,451 units delivered. The Lincoln MKC crossover also cracked the 2,000-unit threshold at 2,065 vehicles delivered, up 14.4% year-over-year.
Sales of the Navigator declined 29.5% year-over-year with 677 units delivered, and sales of the MKT were down 56% at 187 units sold.
Through November, Lincoln’s US sales total 98,933 units, up 9.5% and putting the brand on pace to post its best full-year sales since 2008. Sales of the MKX are up 42.6% to date with 27,440 units delivered, sales of the Navigator are up 11.8% at 62,87 units, sales of the MKC are up 3.4% at 22,767 units, and sales of the MKZ are up 0.7% at 27,884 units.
