Here comes the big Ford drum...I just received the October thru November production numbers for the Kentucky Super Duty Assembly plant. Here are some facts: Order bank is currently 33872 Super Duty's, 7781 Expeditions and 1709 Navigators. Slightly more than 75% of the Super Duty trucks are 6.7 diesels. Lets do the math: 33872 x 75% = 25404 new 6.7 Diesel Fords to just fill orders. The production goal for November is 1,344 units a day which is approximately 9 hours of production off chassis lines. There are 2 shifts and every other Saturday. Ford is on a production schedule that will produce nearly 300000 Super Duty trucks in 2011. 225000 will be 6.7 diesels. That is a lot of trucks. Sure must be a lot of mindless Ford Koolaid drinking buyers out there.
The 2011 Ford 6.7 Diesel powered Super Duty juggernaut keeps rolling on. The latest dealer order bank numbers were just sent to me so I thought I would pass on the news. Demand still remains high. Currently trying for about 1,380 units a day in total with approximately 1,000 of those being SD's. As of right now they are doing a mandatory Saturday on 3/26 and tentative Saturday's for 4/9, 4/30, 5/14, 6/4 and 6/18. Plant will be down the weeks of 7/4 and 7/11 for summer break. The folks down at KTP were happy to hear this as Ford had been talking about only doing 1 week for summer break. Week - 3/14 Super Duty - 42,964 Expedition - 10,061 Navigator - 1,796 Week - 3/7 Super Duty - 42,616 Expedition - 9,731 Navigator - 1,768 Week - 2/28 Super Duty - 42,795 Expedition - 9,925 Navigator - 1,782 With current 6.7 diesel truck production at over 75% of the monthly order bank, the diesel orders are consistently over 32200 trucks a month. This certainly puts Ford on track for a banner year by delivering 300,000 2011 F Series Super Duty Ford 6.7 Diesels.
