Ford F-150 Production Decreased In January 2024

Production of the refreshed 2024 Ford F-150 began in December, which – as is typically the case with such a changeover – resulted in a month-over-month decrease in the number of pickups produced. In fact, Ford F-150 production declined by 33 percent in December versus November at the Dearborn Truck plant, as well as by 19 percent at the Kansas City Assembly plant – meaning that total Ford F-150 production at both plants came in at 36,336 units in December, which was 25 percent fewer than November. However, that trend didn’t stop in the first month of the year either, according to Ford’s latest sales report.

In January, Ford F-150 production at the Dearborn plant totaled 16,106 units, which represents an increase of around 9.5 percent. However, at the Kansas City plant, a total of 10,262 units rolled off the assembly line, which is a rather significant decrease of 52.7 percent. In total, this means that Ford F-150 production at both plants finished January at 26,368 units, or 27.4 percent lower than December.

There are, however, several reasons for this decline, starting with the fact that a supplier parts issue resulted in 2024 Ford F-150 production at the Dearborn Truck plant being paused from January 25th-31st, which was also true of the Kansas City Assembly plant between January 25th-February 1st.

Additionally, hundreds or even thousands of 2024 Ford F-150 pickups were held by the automaker as it performed quality checks before shipping those models to dealers, as Ford Authority recently reported – though deliveries are now officially underway. That isn’t true of its all-electric counterpart – the Ford F-150 Lightning – however, which is currently under a stop-ship over an issue with its headlights.

    I have 2 questions to ask.does ford still make the f-150 rattler? And why don’t they build a regular 2 door style cab for people who doesn’t want are want a 4 door cab? And make a full size sedan with 2 or 4 doors like the galaxie 500
