2024 Ford F-150 Will Have 2,400 Fewer Parts

Ford CEO Jim Farley has been quite clear that he believes the automaker’s current ICE lineup is far too complex, making it a point to note that future models will be simpler, which is not only one way to boost the company’s profitability, but improve quality and also make things a bit easier on consumers. We’ve already seen this shift begin to happen with the 2023 Ford F-150 – which dropped some configurations for the current year – with the 2024 model year set to bring about even more of a reduction in complexity as the automaker aims to have “best in class” quality across its Ford Blue lineup. As Ford Blue president Kumar Galhotra recently explained to Automotive News, we’ll see even more of this in the refreshed 2024 Ford F-150, too.

“In the coming months, we’re going to reduce the orderable combinations on the F-150 by a magnitude that we’ve never seen before,” Galhotra said. “Less complexity means fewer parts. From one model year to another, we’re taking about 2,400 parts out of the F-150. That means many fewer parts to engineer, test and manage quality on.”

Aside from this reduction in complexity, the 2024 Ford F-150 will bring forth a mid-cycle refresh with a number of notable changes. Ford Authority first spotted a 2024 F-150 prototype out driving around back in early December 2022, and since then, we’ve also come across revised versions of the Ford F-150 Raptor R and Tremor, as well as Ford benchmarking the Chevy Silverado against its forthcoming pickup.

As for what we can expect from the 2024 Ford F-150, we do know that it will utilize a few styling tweaks including a new taillight design, as well as 22-inch wheels – which were previously spied on a prototype – and possibly a multi-function tailgate. Inside the cabin, a few changes are in store as well, as Ford Authority has thus far spied prototypes equipped with two different infotainment screens – one horizontally-oriented, and the other mounted vertically.

    Ford tried this in good idea in theory in Europe recently.
    Power trains deleted, features deleted, options reduced or made compulsory adding cost.
    It cheesed buyers off and impacted sales. I guess the message didnt reach the mother country.

    I’d be happy if they just got the parts to offer the options they have now. Thanks Biden for killing off half the options on my sticker with your DoD Mayor Pete today can’t figure out how a supply chain is supposed to work 3 years after COVID.

    This may be the dumbest this Ford has ever done. This amount of parts has to include fasteners. What are going to do take out 2400 relays? So for the first time ever F150’s will rattle like all Chevy pickups.
