Ford has big plans for the next year as it has announced plans to launch the most vehicles globally in a single year in its history.
In 2014 Ford will launch 23 new vehicles globally, with 16 of them in North America, including Lincoln. Some of the vehicles we already know include new Ford Mustang, Ford Transit Connect, Ford Transit and Lincoln MKC.
To support this growth strategy, Ford is set to open two manufacturing facilities in Asia Pacific and one in South America, while adding thousands of new jobs. Just in U.S. more than 5,000 new jobs will be created.
Two new fuel-efficient EcoBoost engines will be added to lineup as well, boosting total offerings to six.
2013 has been a very good year for Ford and the company is on pace to produce 6 million vehicles, or about 16 vehicles per minute around the world. This momentum is led by Ford Focus, the world’s best-selling single nameplate, which is on track to reach 1.1 million sales this year.
