2016 Lincoln MKC EcoBoost

Lincoln finished off 2015 with a strong December, moving 10,860 vehicles for a 12.1% year-over-year sales increase. In total, Lincoln’s 2015 sales stand at 101,227 vehicles sold in the United States, up 7.1% from the brand’s 2014 total.

Lincoln finished strong with sales up among all major models. The MKZ led the way with 3,207 vehicle sold, up 21.7% from December 2014. Sales of the MKX were up 77.4% at a total of 2,960 unts, and sales of the MKC were up 11.1% at 2,566 units. MKT sales were up 14% with 406 units delivered, the Navigator was down 30.2% with 1,250 units delivered, and the MKS was down 49.2% at 471 units delivered.

Overall, Lincoln managed a 7.1% sales increase thanks primarily to the continued success of up MKC (24,590 units sold through December) and a resurgent year from the Navigator (11,964 units, up 14.7%). Lincoln car sales were down a total of 10.4% (MKZ sales down 9.1% and MKS sales down 15.7%), but that number is quite likely to rebound with the impending launch of both the MKS-replacing Continental and the new-look 2017 MKZ.
