DETROIT, April 24
DETROIT, April 24 (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co reported better-than-expected first-quarter results on Wednesday as new models boosted the automaker's pretax profit in North America to its highest level since at least 2000, when it began reporting the region as a separate unit.
The second-largest U.S. automaker reported a pretax profit of $2.1 billion, or 41 cents per share. This exceeded the analysts' average estimate of 37 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
