Ford F-150 Production Rebounded In February 2024

As is the case with most recently refreshed or redesigned Blue Oval products, the 2024 Ford F-150 has thus far been impacted by routine quality checks aimed at ensuring any potential issues are identified and ironed out before those pickups are shipped to customers. In fact, since production of the 2024 Ford F-150 began back in December, thousands of units have been stored at various places around FoMoCo’s Dearborn-based headquarters for that very reason – including the 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning, which has been impacted by an issue with the EV pickup’s headlights. However, Ford F-150 production did manage to rebound in February following a bit of a lull in January, according to the automaker’s latest sales report.

In January, Ford F-150 production at the Dearborn Truck plant totaled 16,106 units, which represented an increase of around 9.5 percent compared to December. However, at the Kansas City Assembly plant, a total of 10,262 units rolled off the assembly line, which was 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 were, 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.

With that in the rear-view, Ford F-150 production rebounded in a big way last month, reaching 27,628 units at the Dearborn plant and 25,147 in Kansas City, for a total output of 52,775 units – which is 26,407 units or just over 100 percent more than January. With its quality checks complete, Ford also began shipping 2024 F-150 pickups to dealers just over a week ago, too, which bodes well for this situation moving forward.
