Ford Motor, FCA and Toyota posted lower April U.S. sales while Nissan, Honda and Hyundai managed increases as the industry struggled to record its first gain of the year, even with the help of an extra selling day.

Ford’s sales dropped 4.7 percent, with the Ford division down 4.7 percent and Lincoln off 6.2 percent, according to the Automotive News Data Center. Ford’s total car deliveries skidded 21 percent last month, while utility vehicle sales fell 9.1 percent and pickup truck volume jumped 7.3 percent, helped by healthy demand for the F-series and the revived Ranger.
