Ford Motor Company says it expects to sell 2.2 million vehicles this year, with the Ford Focus compact car being its most popular model.  A close second and third are the Ford Fiesta and the F-series trucks.

In fact, Ford says it is the second year in a row it will sell more than 2 million cars.  

The Dearborn-based company says its EcoBoost engines, which save energy, are on track to be sold in 520,000 cars by year-end since their launch in 2009.  

Looking ahead, a new 1-liter, 3-cylinder engine will be available in 2013 in new Fiesta cars in the U.S.
