DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 30, 2011  /PRNewswire/ — U.S. sales of the Ford brand this week topped 2 million vehicles for the first time since 2007. The milestone makes Ford (NYSE: F) the best selling brand in America and the first automotive brand to hit the 2 million mark since 2007.

Both the Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus achieve 40 mpg highway, while the Ford Explorer brings a class leading 28 mpg highway with its new EcoBoost engine.

Ford’s smallest utility, the fuel-efficient Escape, has achieved record sales volumes this year and is America’s best selling utility vehicle.
