Ford Expects to be US Best-Selling Brand in 2013

Ford Expects to be US Best-Selling Brand in 2013

Ford is calling it a little early, predicting that it will be the best-selling brand in the United States in 2013.

It is a pretty safe assumption considering the American brand is currently ahead of Toyota, the second most popular US brand, by 396,041 vehicles sold through November.

Ford has had a successful year, with brand retail sales up 15 percent year-to-date. The company expects to sell more than 2.4 million vehicles in 2013, spurred by growth in just about every segment that Ford sells in.

The Ford Fiesta has already broken its all-time high sales record for 2013 with Ford predicting that 70,000 of the small cars will be sold this year. The Escape is also set for a banner year, with Ford predicting that over 300,000 units will be sold, making this the most successful year for Escape ever.

Hybrid sales have been blowing up at Ford as well, with 2013 sales expected to exceed 80,000 units, nearly triple the amount of hybrids that Ford sold in 2012.
