Ford is cutting costs by merging its Ford and Lincoln Mercury marketing divisions. Some sales jobs will be lost but the company won't say how many.

Ford is closing regional offices in Boston, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Minneapolis and Seattle, but will keep some staff in those cities.

Ford has 3500 workers on its sales, marketing and service staff.

The regional offices sell vehicles to the company's 4,000 US dealerships and handle local marketing.

The move is part of a larger cost-cutting effort at Ford. The Dearborn automaker is struggling with high labor and health care costs while its American market share is falling.
