LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Ford is driving away from a very good 2013.

Sales jumped 11 percent last year to nearly 2.5 million -- that's a six-year high.

Ford says a stronger economy boosted pickup truck sales. The automaker sold more than 763,000 F-series pickups last year - up 18 percent.

One in every three vehicles Ford sold in the U.S. was an F-Series.

Ford also had record annual sales for the Fusion, Escape and Fiesta.
