Last year Ford posted its best U.S. sales performance since 2006 by grabbing a good chunk of the still-growing auto market. The newly revamped F-Series Trucks were a particularly bright spot, moving more than 780,000 units. The company will look to continue that streak as the market is expected to grow again this year, thanks to low gas prices. The company will also likely continue to push into automated driving technology to keep up with increasing competition. Ford had been in talks with technology companies like Google and Uber recently, but ultimately decided not to partner with either. CEO Mark Fields noted that company culture was a big reason for this. Fields has made a lot of noise about his commitment to growing Ford as a tech company, and that should continue as the car world continues to automate.
