Dear Shareholders:

It is my pleasure to inform you that our 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders will be conducted online on Thursday,

May 11, 2017. The virtual nature of the meeting will enable us to increase shareholder accessibility, while improving

meeting efficiency and reducing costs.

Ford Motor Company joins a growing list of forward-looking companies conducting virtual annual meetings, including

JetBlue, Hilton Worldwide, and PayPal - just to name a few.

Shareholders will be able to listen, vote and submit questions from their home or any remote location with internet

connectivity. Information on how to participate in this year's virtual meeting can be found on page 83.

While our industry is changing faster than it has in the last 100 years, we know that our fundamental mission of

making people's lives better remains the same. For us, that means continuing to make great cars, SUVs and trucks,

and also embracing emerging opportunities to move people in new ways. In 2016, we made significant progress

towards both goals.

We delivered a substantial profit and achieved our seventh consecutive year of solid earnings and positive operatingrelated

cash flow. In our core automotive business, we maintained our strong momentum by launching 11 new

vehicles in 2016. We also announced that we will be adding 13 new electrified vehicle nameplates globally to our

product portfolio in the next five years.

As the auto industry enters a new era of connectivity and smart mobility, we also are developing new ways to move

people and things. That's because mobility can impact every facet of our lives.

To address mobility-related challenges, we launched Ford Smart Mobility LLC, a new subsidiary formed to design,

build, grow and invest in emerging mobility services. Our crowd-sourced shuttle service, Chariot, also is providing

new transportation options in select U.S. cities and will continue to expand.

We also strengthened our leadership in bringing self-driving vehicles to market by announcing our next-generation

Fusion Hybrid autonomous development vehicle and expanding our autonomous vehicle test fleet. This year, we will

further expand the fleet and begin testing in Europe as well. Earlier this year, we also announced our investment in

an artificial intelligence company, which will further advance our autonomous vehicle development and production

efforts.

We know, however, that meeting these challenges takes more than just launching new products. That is why we

established our City Solutions team, the only one of its kind in the auto industry, to work with municipalities to

propose, pilot and develop mobility solutions tailored to individual communities.

These, and all our other smart mobility efforts, will help us preserve and promote mobility by solving transportation

challenges worldwide for future generations. We view it as both an exciting opportunity and a big responsibility.

Our Board of Directors and entire leadership team continue to focus on delivering business results in the present,

while creating value and opportunity for the future. Through our products and services, investments and philanthropy,

and the contributions of our employees, we are strengthening communities and improving people's lives around the

world.

Thank you for your continued support.

March 31, 2017
