DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Ford Motor Co. is on a roll. Its popular new cars and trucks are grabbing a bigger share of the U.S. market. It's about to erase a big portion of its health care debts. And Ford is adding a significant number of jobs for the first time in years.
The news puts Ford, which has now turned profits for a year and a half, even further ahead of its Detroit rivals as the American auto industry slowly turns around.
