Ford is on track to recover its No. 2 sales ranking in the United States

Article by Christian A., on December 23, 2010

It appears that 2010 was a very good year for Ford Motor Co. as the American manufacturer is on track to recover it No. 2 sales ranking in the United States and surpass Toyota Motor Corp.

According to Ford’s market analyst George Pipas, the auto sales of the manufacturer almost doubled this year boosting share to 16.4 percent, from 15.3 percent last year.

Apparently, according to Pipas, the last time Ford gained one or more points of market share was in the '80s.

For those who don’t know, Ford was the only one of Detroit's automakers who didn’t take a government bailout. Ford also lost its second-place ranking to Toyota back in 2007, but thanks to the biggest recall on the market involving Japanese manufacturer’s cars it appears that now is on track to get its place back.

As you may know already, new models such as the F-150 pickup to the redesigned Fiesta subcompact, helped Ford improve its sales.

Pipas says that Ford’s sales will exceed 12 million vehicles in December for a third consecutive month. Looking to 2011, "we think sales for the year will be above 12 million and perhaps closer to 13 million," he said. [via Detroit News]
