Ford's U.S. sales dropped 6 percent in February as winter weather kept many buyers at home.

Ford's car sales dropped 14 percent and utility sales were down 4 percent.

Pickup truck sales remained a bright spot. Ford's F-Series sales were up nearly 3 percent to 55,882. It was the best February for the F-Series in eight years.

Ford's luxury Lincoln brand also saw improvement. Sales of the MKZ sedan, which went on sale last spring, more than tripled to 3,044.

Ford said its sales to rental, business and other fleets dropped 10 percent because the weather delayed some deliveries. The company expects to make up those sales in March.
