Preston Ford aiming to join Top 50 Dealerships
PRESTON — After 10 years, Preston Ford has announced it will no longer make a run at the Top 100 Ford dealerships in the country. Instead, it is aiming to be among the Top 50.
Preston Ford ended 2017 as the 52nd best selling Ford dealership in Ford Motor Company’s Top 100, which includes 3,300 Ford dealers. This feat was accomplished by outselling many of those dealers that are located all across the country.
For 2018, Preston Ford is aiming to go beyond that rank with its Top 50 Sales Drive and end the year among the best 50 Ford dealerships. To achieve this, Preston Ford will have to go up against dealerships in Michigan, Texas, California and other states with towns that have much higher populations than the areas Preston Ford ser ves. However, Preston Ford Vice President and Chief Operating Officer David Wilson Jr. is confident in the dealership and in its dedicated team.
“Over the last 10 years, our team here at Preston Ford has pulled together to make sure that we have been in the Top 100, and last year’s excellent finish is just the beginning of what we can do,” Wilson said. “We can’t wait to show you the love you deserve.”
Preston Ford also announced it plans to finish as the top Ford dealership in Maryland, the top Ford dealership — out of more than 115 others — in the Washington region for 2018, along with 10th in the nation for sales during December.
Chris Marks, vice president and operations director, thinks its new, state-of-the-art dealership, its departments of highly trained and expert staff members and Preston Ford’s overall commitment to excellent customer service will give the dealership an edge over its competitors.
“I was the general manager of the Preston Ford store for the last seven years and have gotten to participate in and help lead this amazing team to better numbers year after year,” Marks said. “I can’t wait to see where they end up this year and know that you will find me working right alongside of them in December.”
To realize these goals, Preston Ford will be holding its Top 50 Sales Drive up until the end of December. It encourages its customers to visit and browse its inventory of Ford cars, trucks and SUV models, and find the right Ford for their lives at a price that they can afford. Preston Ford also thanks its guests for their continued support and hopes even more guests will come by the dealership.

The staff of Preston Ford celebrate finishing 2017 as the 52th best Ford dealership out of about 3,300 in the country, its best overall finish and seventh time in the past eight years in the Top 100. The dealership is aiming to break into Ford’s Top 50 for 2018.
