Ford posted solid earnings for the most recent quarter, sending its shares up 6% after hours.
Both sales and profits increased for North America, one of its most important markets.
The company said that it expects that its sales and profits for 2019 will top 2018.
Ford didn't share any new details about its ongoing redesign of its global operations, which it said will cost it $11 billion in the next few years. So far it has spelled out only $1 billion worth of those plans.
"More to come" it said in a set of slides for Thursday evening's investor conference call.
Ford (F) is also looking to make new alliances as it restructures its business. It's teamed with Volkwagen to develop new products, and just announced a $500 million investment in Rivian, which plans to debut an electric truck next year.
