Ford marks the official start of production of the all-new 2015 F-150 at Kansas City Assembly Plant, which joins Dearborn Truck Plant in building the F-150. This means Ford has expanded production of the first mass-produced light-duty pickup truck with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body. In addition to producing all F-150 models and cab configurations, production at Kansas City Assembly Plant now includes F-150s with an 8-foot cargo box and heavy payload package to meet the needs of commercial fleet customers. The all-new F-150 is off to a strong start. In January, F-Series had its strongest sales month since 2004 Ė Fordís best sales year ever for F-150. Retail sales increased 7 percent in February. These numbers make F-Series one of Fordís fastest-selling vehicles, at just 18 days to turn on dealer lots Ė well below the light-duty full-size pickup truck average of 105 days. Combined, Kansas City Assembly and Dearborn Truck facilities will have capacity to produce more than 700,000 Ford F-150 pickups per year for availability in 90 markets globally.
