Ford Brand to Top 2 Million Sales in 2011

Ford Motor Co. announced late Thursday that it has sold more than 2 million of its namesake brand cars and trucks in the US this year, making it the first automaker to achieve the feat since 2007.  The company enjoyed tremendous success with its Fiesta  compact car and the redesigned Explorer SUV, while its F-150 pickup was the world's top-selling vehicle over the first nine months of the year.  While Ford still trails General Motors in overall sales, the Ford brand tops GM's top brand, Chevrolet, by a stout margin.

Through November, sales of Ford brand cars and trucks were up 18 percent to 1.86 million, as compared with the first eleven months of 2010.  The lone member of Detroit's Big 3 automakers to fend off bankruptcy without a taxpayer bailout, Ford reported net income of $6.6 billion through the first three quarters of the year.  The company's recovery comes in the midst of an industry-wide rebound, as car sales have topped 13 million in the US in each of the last three months.
