  • Ford, Lincoln and Mercury are announcing a new plan to offer employee discount pricing for customers who purchase a Ford, Lincoln or Mercury car, truck or SUV between July 6 and Aug.
  • The Ford Family Plan is designed to drive showroom traffic through the busy month of July, bringing more customers into the Ford family.
  • Ford, Lincoln and Mercury will combine the strength of their dealer bodies and advertising might to communicate an easy-to-underst and discount on a new Ford, Lincoln or Mercury.

          

    DEARBORN, Mich., July 5, 2005 – Ford, Lincoln and Mercury are combining their strengths and welcoming all customers to the family in July by offering their highly prized employee discount pricing to everyone through the “Ford Family Plan.”

    Beginning July 6, customers in the more than 4,000 Ford, Lincoln and Mercury showrooms across the U.S. will be eligible to receive the Ford employee discounted price on 2005 model cars, trucks and SUVs.

    “The unique thing about Ford is that it’s a family company, and it’s that sense of family that makes us different,” says Steve Lyons, Ford group vice president, North America Marketing, Sales and Service. “The Ford Family Plan is a great deal with a clear, compelling message that shows customers how much we value their business.”
