A Technology Company

Our Performance Progress

In 2014, we will launch 23 new or significantly refreshed vehicles to customers around the world – the most in a single year in more than a century.

We reported 2013 full-year pre-tax profit of $8.6 billion1 (excluding special items), driven by the highest Automotive pre-tax profit in more than a decade and continued solid profit from Ford Credit.

To support our aggressive growth strategy and meet demand for our vehicles, we are adding jobs in several key regions – 11,000 in the U.S. and Asia combined in 2014 – and building new facilities.

We increased market share in the world’s two largest automotive markets – China and the U.S. – as well as in South America. We improved our retail car share in Europe, a region with challenges but where we believe we are on track to return to profitability in 2015.

Case Study: Remaking the F-150

When it came time to update the F-150, one of Ford’s most important products, we faced a pivotal question: How do you improve on such a successful vehicle? Do you change it incrementally or take a leap forward? We chose the leap forward approach, reinventing the 2015 F-150 as the toughest, smartest and most capable F-150 yet.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, BlackRock

“Financial sustainability demands that companies be mindful of their social and environmental impact. By monitoring their own impact (and that of others), companies are better able to assess both risks and opportunities, giving their shareholders, customers and employees a distinct advantage.”
