Ford is on track to sell 2.2-million vehicles in the U.S. this year, marking its second straight year topping the 2-million mark and being the only brand in America to do so. 

Adding to its list of accolades, Ford will also have this year’s best-selling global nameplate with the Ford Focus, while the Fiesta is on pace to being the best-selling global B-Car. That would give the American automaker the best-selling B- and C-segment cars in the world.

Ford will be the only automaker with three vehicle models in the global top 10 with the Focus at the top spot, the F-Series at number 4 and the Fiesta at number 5. The Blue Oval is also on track to sell more than 520,000 EcoBoost-powered vehicles by year end, since the engine’s introduction in 2009.

“Customers around the world are rewarding Ford for investing in fuel-efficient new vehicles, from our fun-to-drive EcoBoost-powered small cars to our hard-working, capable F-Series pickups,” Farley said. “No other automaker in the world shares Ford’s extensive volume or range of EcoBoost engines – from the 1.0-liter that drives our small cars to the 3.5-liter that has been a winner with truck and large crossover owners around the globe.”
