Ford said on Wednesday (18 December) it expects 2013 to be one of the best full-year results in its history, with strong revenue growth, market share in all regions improved or equal to last year, total company pre-tax profit of about US$8.5bn, substantially higher automotive operating-related cash flow than a year ago and a stronger balance sheet. Pretax profit for 2014 is seen down up to $1.5bn, however.
