Ford Investing $1.3 Billion in its Kentucky Truck Plant
The all-new 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty is coming but before it officially arrives on the sales floor, Ford Motor Company is investing heavily into the plant that will construct it.
At the automaker’s Kentucky Truck Plant, Ford will invest $1.3 billion for an all-new body shop, facility upgrades and retooling to build the new aluminum-bodied Super Duty truck. This investment comes on top of the $80 million invested in 2014 to meet growing customer demand for Super Duty trucks and $129 million to support Lincoln MKC production at Louisville Assembly Plant making the brand’s two-year investment total in Kentucky nearly $1.5 billion.
Currently, the Kentucky Truck Plant produces produce F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 Super Duty pickups and chassis cabs, as well as Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator.
