DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Ford is reporting better than expected first-quarter results.  The automaker says it made a pretax profit of 2.1-billion dollars, or 41 cents a share.  The figure exceeds the average estimate by analysts of 37 cents a share.  New models helped to increase Ford's pretax profit in North America to its highest level since at least 2000, when it started to report the region as a separate unit.
