The New Big 3 – GM, Toyota and Chrysler

For the first time in recent memory, Ford Motor Co. fell to No. 4 in U.S. auto sales behind General Motors Corp., Toyota Motor Corp., and DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group, demonstrating just how far the automaker has fallen as it battles to keep its doors open. Last month, Ford's domestic brands — Ford, Lincoln and Mercury — were outsold by Chrysler's U.S. brands — Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep. Ford's U.S. brand sales dropped 19.6 percent to 153,026 vehicles in January, while demand for Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep models rose slightly to 156,308 units.
