Ford has announced changes to its production outputs of the Bronco, Ranger, and F-150 Lightning vehicle ranges. The Bronco, Ranger, and their Raptor variants are so popular that the Blue Oval has had to add a third production shift at the Michigan Assembly Plant to keep up with demand. This will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
In doing so, the Dearborn-based brand has created nearly 900 new jobs, as a total of 1,600-person-strong workforce is required for the newly added third shift. The remaining 700 employees are made up of existing Ford workers from the Ford Rouge Complex.
Later this year, Ford will make additional changes to support increased production of the Ranger and Bronco. Eventually, the three crews (working two shifts) will produce vehicles seven days a week at the Michigan Assembly Plant.
