Ford might not have a fancy new toy to show off like the Chevy Volt, but that doesn't mean this company isn't doing numbers. For the first time since 2007, when the U.S. entered its recession, Ford surpassed two million units sold, topping last year's total by roughly 100,000 units. Ford's year-to-date light vehicle sales were up 18 percent, and its small car sales are set to secure a 20 percent increase. According to Ken Czubay, Ford's vice president for U.S. sales and marketing, industry auto sales have passed 13 million in each of the past three months, implying that the current sales are not a fluke. Could we be on track for an economic upswing in 2012?
