Ford and Lincoln dealers in the United States delivered 239,242 new vehicles in December 2015, an 8.4 percent increase compared to December 2014. Both of the automaker’s brands — Ford and Lincoln — were up for the month.

“December capped off six straight months of year-over-year sales gains for F-Series, with strong increases coming from both retail sales and the strength of commercial fleet orders, as we closed out 2015,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “Ford-brand SUVs delivered their best sales results in more than a decade, with our newest SUVs leaving dealer lots in a matter of days.”
