Some of the top-selling Ford car models include the F-Series, the Fusion, the Focus and the Explorer, according to Good Car Bad Car. In 2013 and 2014, the Ford Focus was the top-selling car model in the entire world. This was largely due to an increased demand in China, where one of the world's eight Ford manufacturing plants resides.
Introduced in 1998 in Europe, the Ford Focus is a compact car designed to replace the Ford Laser and Ford Escort models of previous decades. Its small form and maneuverability allowed it to remain competitive with popular Japanese sedans. Since 2000, its U.S. sales have consistently met or surpassed 160,000 units sold per year, with several years at 200,000 units sold or above. The Edmunds.com review of the Ford Focus cites the model's responsiveness, control and overall quality as its foremost positives.
The Ford Fusion is a mid-size model that has consistently ranked among the top-selling cars of its class in the world since 2006. Positioned between the compact Focus and the full-size Ford Taurus, the Fusion offers spaciousness and a sporty feel while retaining the comfort and safety of a family vehicle. In 2006, the Fusion became the official body style for Ford vehicles in NASCAR.
