2015 Ford F-150 Production Speeds Up To Meet Growing Customer Demand


CLAYCOMO, Missouri — Truck buyers should have an easier time getting their hands on the redesigned 2015 Ford F-150 as Friday marked the official start of production of the truck at Ford's Kansas City Assembly Plant.

"With production starting at Kansas City Assembly, we are better poised to start meeting growing customer demand for our pickup," said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas, in a statement.

Ford said the 2015 F-150 is one of its fastest-selling vehicles, with just 18 days to turn on dealer lots or "well below the light-duty full-size pickup truck average of 105 days."

Kansas City Assembly joins the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan in building the F-150.

Production at Kansas City Assembly now includes F-150s with an 8-foot cargo box and heavy payload package to meet the needs of commercial fleet customers.

Key competitors to the F-150 include the Chevrolet Silverado, Nissan Titan, Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra.

Edmunds says: Ford tells us some F-150 buyers have even followed the transports into the dealership. With production hitting full speed, stalking transports should no longer be necessary.
