Ford Said to Have Cut 20% of Metropolitan Lincoln Dealerships

Ford Motor Co. has cut about 20 percent of its metropolitan Lincoln dealerships in the past six months as it seeks to revive its luxury line and boost sales at the remaining stores, said a person familiar with the situation.

The automaker now has about 400 Lincoln dealers in the nation’s top 130 metropolitan markets, said the person, who asked not to be identified revealing internal data. Ford told Lincoln dealers in October that it planned to eliminate 175 of its 500 metro Lincoln outlets.
