Dearborn, Michigan – The Ford Motor Company announced that beginning in 2004, the Ford F-150 pickup truck will be built at a new Dearborn Truck Plant now under construction at the Ford Rouge Centre in Dearborn, Michigan.
“As the new flagship of Ford’s lean and flexible assembly plants, it will have the capability of interchanging three vehicle architectures and producing up to nine different models, if needed,” said Anne Stevens, vice president, North America Vehicle Operations.
Construction of the new assembly plant is scheduled to be completed by late 2003, with assembly operations beginning in 2004.
