One may also ask, how is Ford doing financially?
The net income of $3.3 billion was up from a negative $2 billion in 2020, and from a positive $1.1 billion in 2019. Ford ends the quarter with $31 billion in cash on hand and $47 billion in liquidity. A year ago, Ford had $34 billion in cash on hand and $35 billion in liquidity.
How much debt is Ford carrying?

Ford Motor owes the government $5.9 billion it borrowed in June 2009, the same month GM filed for bankruptcy. By Sept. 15, Ford needs to start paying that money back. In a government filing, the carmaker said $577 million is due within the next year, and the full amount must be paid off by June 15, 2022.
In total, GM received $52 billion from the U.S. government, but only $6.7 billion of this amount was considered a loan. The company already paid back $2 billion, so this $4.7 billion is the last payment. This doesn’t mean that “Government Motors” is no more.

Ford did not ask for a government bailout, but received other financial assistance. Ford supported the GM and Chrysler bailouts to protect its supply chain and dealer network. To run the auto bailout part of TARP, the new Obama administration created the White House Council on Automotive Communities and Workers.
Let’s be honest here: Ford has gotten a free pass and earned market shares for being the only US automaker that “didn’t take bailout money,” when they did in fact, take government loans with the condition of making cars that the government wanted.
