Consumers aren't buying gas-guzzling pickups like they used to -- and the world's No. 3 automaker felt the pain. Truck-heavy Ford posted its biggest loss in history on lower sales and restructuring costs, including a $7.5 billion employee buyout. The short-term outlook doesn't look good. On its home turf, Ford was passed by Toyota and DaimlerChrysler in U.S. vehicle sales in January 2007.
