Back in June, we reported the dates that 2021 Ford Super Duty order books were scheduled to open, as well as the dates it was scheduled to enter production at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant and Ford Ohio Assembly Plant. However, Ford Authority has learned that the automaker has since made a few changes to its timeline.
|Activity:||Order Banks Open||Production Starts||Order Banks Open (Old Dates)||Production Start (Old Dates)|
|Kentucky Truck Plant:||August 10, 2020||October 26, 2020||August 17, 2020||November 2, 2020|
|Ohio Assembly Plant:||August 10, 2020||November 9, 2020||August 17, 2020||November 9, 2020|
Originally, 2021 Ford Super Duty order banks were scheduled to open on August 17th, 2020, but are now open today, August 10th, 2020. Production was originally scheduled to start at the Kentucky Truck Plant on November 2nd, 2020, but will now also begin one week early, on October 26th, 2020. Despite these changes, production at the Ohio Assembly Plant hasn’t changed, and will begin on November 9th, 2020.
The Super Duty lineup consists of the F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550, and F-600. However, F-600 production is on a different schedule.
As we recently reported, the 2020 F-600 equipped with Ford’s 7.3L Godzilla V8 is scheduled to go into production on August 17th, 2020 at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant after order banks for the F-600 opened back on March 2nd, 2020. Which, interestingly, will mean that the F-600 will still be a 2020 model year vehicle in early 2021.
Meanwhile, the F-600 equipped with Ford’s 6.7L Power Stroke V8 is scheduled to go into production in early 2021, as we reported last month. The F-600 is also equipped with FoMoCo’s 10-speed TorqShift automatic transmission with available live drive power takeoff.
There will be a few minor changes and updates to the 2021 Super Duty, which we will outline later.
