Ford, Chrysler Add Incentives
Though both companies saw their car sales rise in the month of January, both Ford Motor Co. and the Chrysler Group added new incentives to some models in their lineups after releasing sales figures yesterday. Ford, which saw its sales rise about two percent last month, has put $500 more in cash rebates on the Focus sedan, boosting the total incentive on that vehicle for 2006 models to $2500.
