The Ford Motor Company is an American automobile manufacturer headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford was founded by Henry Ford and incorporated on June 16, 1903. The company sells passenger and commercial vehicles under the Ford brand, as well as Lincoln luxury cars. Ford also owns a 2.1% stake in Mazda and 8% stake in Aston Martin, both companies which they sometimes share parts with. Ford has been described by Forbes as “the most important industrial company in the history of the U.S.” Ford is responsible for introducing methods of large scale manufacturing; they are often credited with inventing the assembly line. Ford’s influence was so strong that by 1914, the assembly line style of mass production was known as Fordism. Ford has also in the past owned Jaguar, Land Rover, and Volvo, although it has since sold all of these brands, and manufactured the Mercury brand of entry-level luxury cars from 1938 until their discontinuation in 2011.

Ford follows GM as the second largest U.S. automaker, and is the fifth largest in the world. Ford is the eighth largest American company by revenue, with a revenue in 2009 of $118.3 billion, and they manufactured 5.532 million automobiles and employed about 213,000 employees at about 90 plants worldwide in 2008.

Ford has also enjoyed a decent success in motorsports including NASCAR, touring cars, and rally.

Some of the most popular Ford models are the iconic Mustang, the Focus and Fiesta compact hatchbacks, the Taurus sedan, the Fusion sedan, the Escape, Edge, Flex, Explorer, and Expedition SUV/crossovers, the F-150 pickup truck, the Transit commercial cargo van, and the E-series commercial passenger van. Ford is also environmentally focused, building hybrid versions of much of its lineup and developing their Ecoboost technology, which uses turbocharging to get more power from a smaller engine, aiming to lessen fuel consumption without sacrificing performance.
