  1. Until the end of the month.
  2. While you’re not wrong on the efficiency part, to say the 10R transmission wasn’t designed for hybrid duty is obviously very much not true.
  3. If you look at a body of a 2023 Ranger, 2023 Bronco and 2024 Ranger… just the body shell, not the complete built cab/body, you will see the difference as it is VERY obvious. The 2024 Ranger basically shares the front structure (from and including firewall forward) with Bronco with the key difference being a few of the mounting points/brackets for the fenders and various other parts are different.
  4. If nothing else the biggest difference between the Ranger and Bronco chassis, not frame, is Ranger still uses leaf springs where Bronco doesn’t.
  5. No, that was the body. Wouldn’t fit between the aprons. No aprons on the new model.
  6. Im not 100% sure about that. Best answer I can give is maybe.
  7. I work on a Ranger line now so if we stopped building them I must have been living a dream since January 😂
  8. I know someone who’s seen it. His quote was: “It was ok. It didn't take my breath away. The exterior was much sleeker than the current explorer. Similar to an oversized Edge.” Now that I think about it that sounds exactly like the kind of design the mainstream media is going to fawn over.

    Ford Sales May 2023

    I remember reading that the plant was down in February and some of March to make improvements so they can increase volume. That might have something to do with it.
  10. keep in mind anything new (i.e. not already in production) is going to be referred to as “exciting new product” or something to that effect when the new contract comes out. That’s the way it always is.
  11. We aren’t running any OT though. Every time they try it ends in cutting hours short by the end of the week.
  12. Im sure that’s what the spin from the glass house will be. It’s not necessarily a manpower issue. I’m not sure we could build 250k at the rate we run. We don’t build as fast as we did in the days of the Focus as far as I know.
  13. The lack of a third shift is due to supply issues. Every time we run any kind of OT at all there’s enough parts that are short to send us home early by Thursday or Friday. It even happened this week with the holiday on Monday. I was home by my normal lunchtime yesterday.
  14. No, it’s still Bronco. As long as Bronco remains as hot as it is, Ranger production (and likewise sales) will also suffer. The only remedy is adding a third shift and trust me, I absolutely do not believe that is happening any time soon.
  15. How sure of that are you?
