Ford finished £6.48 billion in the red in 2006 - the worst year in the company's history.
Although Ford of Europe continued to make a profit, up from £201 million in 2005 to £251 million last year, huge restructuring in the US plunged the company into the massive deficit.
The Premier Automotive Group (PAG) within Ford includes Aston , Jaguar Land Rover and Volvo, and this also made a loss of £166 million.
Jaguar is to blame for much of the PAG's deficit, a reported loss of £365 million, wiping out profits made by Aston .
While Ford is seeking a buyer for Aston , new Ford boss Alan Mulally said at the Detroit Motor Show that Jaguar was not for sale. It is not predicted to turn a profit for several years.
