Ford Likely to Increase Incentives in 2010
Ford had long held the title as the number one selling brand in the US until 2007. Due in part to the economic collapse this past year, Toyota climbed into the top spot for the first time in history and has retained its position for 2 years.
In an effort to ensure they remain number one in 2009, Toyota went all out on incentives and financing deals beginning this past November. That's about two weeks earlier than usual.
You can be certain that Ford will do all they can to ensure they become the number one seller of cars once again in 2010.
Look for Ford to offer some incredible incentives next year. You can also expect Toyota to be spending heavily to entice buyers. Our bet is that Ford will once again retain their number one spot. Whatever the case, this is good news for buyers of these vehicles.
