The F-150 is built at two factories, so supply won't completely dry up but people will need to wait longer for their F-150 and it'll be worse when dealership stock starts going down because that's less to choose from. They don't even know when the Kansas plant will reopen at this point. This could push back the diesel F-150 release date.

As long as they're offering powertrains that get great fuel economy then I don't see the problem. At this rate they have no choice but to.

After waiting 8 weeks for an order and the dealer having zero information, I cancelled my order 9 days agoand had a new Ram Ecodiesel in hand by the end of the day for $18k off msrp. I couldn’t be happier with the decision, and this was before the productions stoppage fiasco and the fact the 4x4 MPG came out to only 25 HWY. I wish Ford had their **** together, but it appears no such luck.

Good luck to all of you waiting

Hopefully they get this figured out and it doesn’t delay us even further! Getting harder and harder to not just go buy an EB!

The company said workers likely would end up with less time off this summer to make up for the shutdown.

Unfortunate situation with the fire but given what happened I couldn't imagine a better response, especially with how quick they acted. Lucky for Ford their products are good enough that potential customers are willing to wait, I sure would.
