For the second straight year Ford has topped 2 million automobile sales in the U.S., making it the only brand to do so in 2012.
"In just three years, Ford has transformed our global small car lineup and started winning over customers worldwide with vehicles that are not only fun to drive but also fuel efficient, largely thanks to our award-winning EcoBoost engines," said Jim Farley, Ford's executive vice president.
The emphasis on selling small cars has also helped boost the sales of the Focus and Fiesta. The Focus will likely be the best-selling model across the globe in 2012, while the Fiesta is on track to be the top B-Car in the world and the F-series truck will end the year as one of the top five most popular automobiles. About a quarter of the brand's total sales in 2012 included vehicles with the EcoBoost engine, which improves fuel efficiency, as well as several other features improving vehicle maintenance.
According to AutoBlog, the Toyota Camry will still take the crown as the single most popular vehicle in the U.S., but the brand has yet to come close to the recent total sales record set by Ford.
