It’s official: The Ford Focus was the best-selling car in the world in 2012, according to R.L. Polk & Co. The Focus is far from the best selling car in America, but it’s world status is still a homerun for Ford.
The success of the Focus, which beat the Toyota Corolla for world honors and is improving in the U.S., is at the core of Ford’s big comeback under CEO Alan Mulally.
When the former Boeing Co. executive arrived at Ford in 2006, the company was building different cars of the same size around the world. Indeed, the American Focus and the European Focus were different cars, though called the same name. Dumb, thought Mulally.
Mulally quickly moved the company to build the Focus, as well as the Fusion mid-sized sedan, the same around the world as a way to lower costs and improve quality (the fewer changes the less things that can go wrong).
And here at Brown Motors we have really seen an improvement in reliability! The focus is available in a sedan, a 5-door hatchback and an SRT sports version.
