Ford to sell Edge crossover models in Brazil

Ford will sell its Edge crossover this year in Brazil. The Edge really helped, increasing Ford`s crossover sales with 63% in the United States last year, a trend the carmaker hopes extending to Brazil next year. Ford raised its sales with 20.7% in Brazil in 2007. Enjoy the Edge...

`Ford is on a roll in South America, and our plan is to use our global product strengths to accelerate the introduction of more products that people really want and value around the world` said Mark Fields, the president of The Americas at Ford.

Fields added: `Last year saw a new EcoSport compact utility set the pace in South America. With the arrival of the Edge and other products this year such as the new Ka, the Ford showroom in Brazil will offer the widest range of choice for customers in our history`.

Ford also plans investing $1 billion in its operations in Brazil over the upcoming four years.
