Ford Halts F-150 Production in Kansas City


Ford will halt production at the automaker’s assembly plant near Kansas City, Missouri, that makes F-150s. 

On Friday, the company said global semiconductor shortages are causing the work stoppage. 

According to Reuters, the plant will be down for a week. 

However, Ford’s F-150 plant in Dearborn, Michigan, will stay open. 

The F-150 has been the top-selling truck in America for 45 years. 

In February, Ford admitted that assembly plants will continue to be idled as it works through chip supply chain problems.  

Ford sold 726,003 F-Series trucks in 2021, which was down from 787,372 in 2020. 

According to Ford, the plant currently has 7,250 employees.
