You’ve likely heard it by now, but at Court Street Ford we wanted you to hear it straight from us: Due to a fire at suppliers’ facility, Ford will be shutting down F-150 production facilities in Dearborn and Kansas City. The Super Duty, which shares many components with the F-150, has also been affected. Production of those vehicles has been completely halted at the plants in Kentucky and Ohio.
What does this mean for you the customer? Well, for right now, nothing. Right now we have a large selection of over 50 F-150s in stock, with several more on the way (having already been produced). Ford has not scaled back any deals – it’s still possible to save over $10,000 on select F-150s, with lease deals as good as $199/mo on STX and $229 on XLT.
Stock will most likely be disrupted later into the summer provided production does not start back up quickly. The affected supplier, Meridian, has pledged to being operations as soon as it is able to, and Ford is monitoring the situation very closely.
