¿Bronco Getting An Aluminum Body?

Recommended Posts

The recent union agreement documents would seem to imply that the Bronco body is going to be aluminum ... as "Stampings for all new Broncos" are to be added to the facility that produces aluminum bodies for F150s, Superduties, Expeditions and Navigators ...

Dearborn Stamping makes steel parts for multiple facilities, including MAP (up until Focus ended) and Flat Rock.

Are those steel parts body panels, or structural members?

I don't know what exactly they make. I would have to ask. MAP Stamping also makes parts for Flat Rock, Dearborn/Kansas City, and Louisville to. We all kind of help each other out.

Interesting that it describes "Broncos" (plural) vs "Bronco" (singular) while listing all other product in singular term.

2 door and 4 door?  It also notes "Mustangs" (conv and coupe)

 

Interesting to note it mentions stampings for existing Edge/MKX but only "new" stampings for Edge (nothing about Nautilus).  Not sure there's anything to read into there.

Only notation in the supplied attachment regarding Mustang is singular...unless i am missing it. ( I don't have access to the rest of the agreement, so not doubting your assessment) Also, Super Duty comes in 2 door and 4 door style but is listed singularly.

Making an optometrist appointment as we speak....whew...I looked at that a half a dozen times and didn't see that.

I saw that as well, and wondered if it meant the Maverick was getting some parts there as well.
