Ice Mountain needs to be cleared out first. Which makes sense, especially as it would be a massive load of chip-centered components coming in to release them all out to their anxious customers......

2022 will be another bad year for manufacturing :(

Not a typical scheduling week if they are trying to maintain their normal cadence of scheduling 2 months ahead on the 4th (?) week of the month or whatever they were trying to normalize to.

I think they will continue to build new ones once they get their shipments of missing chip modules even though they have the build up on Ice Mountain. It may end up being they ship later built models before they can get the Ice Mountains ones caught up with the missing components.

Any word on Ranger. Just curious since they are running the same line with our Bronco. Without Ranger as well, this would shutter MAP, no?

I'm on Ice Mountain so, there is that, but, it is going to be a rough year again by the sounds of things.

They've already filled most of April with all the build week shuffling. Deliveries are pushed out into May. Doesn't make much sense even if it was a typical scheduling week.

Right now they're scheduled out until the last week or two of March. If MAP has to shut down this week for any reason that means the February builds become March builds and March becomes April.

Either way, I would imagine Ford will do whatever it'll takes to keep production up and running. Costs them more money to shut down production than it does to keep it running. So they'll keep it running as long as they can, even if it means cutting shifts or parking new vehicles in a field somewhere.

This isn’t saying they’re skipping production weeks, just that they’re not filling in the schedule yet. They’re trying to run the plants lean given the volatility in manufacturing. “Keeping their options open”

Wouldn’t be shocked if there’s also parts shortages from the blockade.
Don’t be shocked…. Reports indicate the Ford plants impacted are a engine factory in Windsor, Ontario and an assembly plant in Oakville, Ontario. I think the Bronco’s 2.3 liter is assembled in the U.S. (Cleveland) while the 2.7 liter is made in Lima, Ohio. So the blockade should have no impact on the Michigan plant.

Yes I think that one produces the 7l looking further. Thankfully not the 2.3 or 2.7.
