Seems its trucks aren't the only things built Ford tough. The automaker's subsidiary, Ford Motor Credit, is proving to be pretty resilient, too. One of the world's largest auto financing companies, it funds autos for and through Ford and Lincoln dealerships in some 70 countries. It finances new, used, and leased vehicles, and provides wholesale financing, mortgages, and capital loans for dealers. The company also offers business fleet financing and insurance. Founded in 1959, Ford Motor Credit generates more than half of its revenue from operating leases, and more than 70% of revenue from the US.
