Ford's (F) Crown Victoria couldn't capitalize on the Avalon's weakness, losing 23% of its sales from a year earlier, but its Taurus delivered a 93% boost as the Lincoln and Volvo divisions gained momentum.
Lincoln sales were up 18% as the MKX drew 58% more sales last month than it did last February, while the bulky Navigator SUV bucked the crossover trend and posted a more than 48% sales gain. Even the Town Car managed a 1.2% sales boost. Volvo sales, meanwhile, grew 38% as sales of its midlife-crisis convertibles doubled at the same rate as its warhorse wagons.
