DETROIT — Ford Motor Co. led the U.S. industry to a 13 percent sales gain in February while topping General Motors Co. in monthly sales for the first time in 12 years.
Ford’s 43 percent increase marked its fifth straight monthly advance in its home market.
Total industry sales climbed by 91,381 vehicles from February 2009, which was the weakest month in the market’s three-year slump. Last month’s seasonally adjusted annual rate was 10.36 million vehicles, down from January’s 10.54 million but well above 9.1 million a year earlier.
