Ford Super Duty Production Increased In January 2024

Last year, the all-new 2023 Ford Super Duty officially launched to much anticipation, but it wasn’t exactly an event that occurred without its fair share of turbulence. In fact, the United Auto Workers (UAW) surprised Ford by walking out of the Kentucky Truck Plant – which builds the Ford Super Duty, Ford Expedition, and Lincoln Navigator – roughly a month after it began its targeted strike against the Big Three automakers, which promptly brought production to a halt. The strike ended in late October, but Super Duty production plummeted that month before bouncing back in November and decreasing in December to close out the calendar year. In the first month of 2024, production of the popular pickup did follow that up with an increase, however, according to The Blue Oval’s latest sales report.

In November, Ford Super Duty production totaled 29,876 cumulative units between the Kentucky plant and the Ohio Assembly plant, but in December, the Kentucky Truck plant built 26,173 Super Duty trucks – which was 1,220 units fewer than November. At the Ohio facility, Ford built 2,483 Super Duty models in November versus 2,196 in December, which was also a month-over-month decrease of 287 units, or just over 12 percent.

In January, Ford followed that up by building 30,980 Super Duty models in Kentucky and 2,196 in Ohio, which represents an increase of 4,087 units or 18.37 percent. In Ohio, production last month reached 2,510 units, which is also an increase month-over-month, in that case, 314 units or around 14.3 percent more. Cumulatively, this means that Ford built 28,369 Super Duty trucks in December versus 33,490 in January, good for an increase of 4,121 units, or 18 percent.

Coming off a total redesign for the 2023 model year, the 2024 Ford Super Duty isn’t receiving too many changes, aside from the addition of two new exterior colors – Glacier Gray and Darkened Bronze – though notably, both the XL and XLT trims are also gaining Ford’s Onboard Scales and Smart Hitch features as an available option.

    Is it posable the decrease in production in December had to do with the holidays that month? ???

    I ordered a new Ranger on June 16 2023 where the hell is it?

    I ordered a 2023 Ford escape hybrid all wheel drive titanium is 2024 now and I’m still waiting. Do you have any idea if you’re going to build it? I prefer Ford.
