The Ford Motor Company simply could not wait to get their hands on the new full year of Polk data from 2013. It’s something they—along with us here at Cambridge Classic Ford—have been waiting for the way kids wait for Christmas morning. And just like Christmas morning, the wait was totally worth it: Ford analyzed the data from IHS Automotive and came to the conclusion that, once again, the Ford Focus is the best-selling car across the globe.
Sales of the Focus actually rose 8.1% over 2012 sales, and Ford moved a total of 1,097,618 units of the compact passenger car over the 2013 calendar year. “It is remarkable to see Focus again lead the industry as the No. 1-selling vehicle nameplate on the planet,” said Jim Farley, an executive vice president for Ford.
And just how do you celebrate your victory cementing you as king of the hill for another year, despite fiercer competition than ever before? If you’re the Blue Oval, you design a whole new Focus, ready to dominate the world’s new car markets for another generation. “With the new car, we’ve raise the bar again, showcasing Ford’s commitment to continuous improvement—adding better technology for drivers and a sleeker, more modern exterior across the entire Focus family,” added Farley.
The next-generation Focus will also feature a new engine, a 1.0L EcoBoost offering designed to raise the car’s already outstanding fuel efficiency to an entirely new level. Stay tuned to our blog for more information about the Focus, both the current and future generations, very soon!
