DETROIT -- Topped by a doubling of the maximum customer rebate on the Lincoln LS sedan, Ford Motor Co. pushed several of its buyer bonuses upward last week. The LS giveback now is $4,000 to $8,000; it had been $3,000 to $4,000.
Next in line is the Lincoln Town Car, which brings $6,500 to $7,000. The low end is up $500.
Rebates were increased $500 on the Ford F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT pickups. The giveback rose $1,000 on the Ford Explorer SUV and Crown Victoria sedan and $1,500 on the Lincoln Navigator SUV. The Ford Focus payment was reduced $1,000, and $500 was lopped off the rebates on the Mercury Mariner and Mountaineer SUVs and Montego and Grand Marquis sedans.
Finance rates were reduced on a range of nameplates. Ford Motor incentives are set to expire July 31.
