    I wouldn't be waiting for a better deal or increase in dealer inventory anytime soon. I would not want one of those held trucks personally.


    Ford to cancel shifts, partially assemble some vehicles in global chip shortage
    • Ford (NYSE:F) says it will continue for now to assemble its flagship F-150 pickup trucks and Edge SUVs in North America but without certain parts due to the global semiconductor chip shortage, while it cancels shifts at two assembly plants.
    • Ford says the chip shortage, combined with the shortage of a part caused by last month's U.S. winter storm, will prompt it to build the vehicles - numbering "in the thousands" - and then hold them "for a number of weeks" until the parts are available.
    • The production cancellations include three shifts through Friday at a plant in Kentucky that produces the Ford Escape and Lincoln Corsair SUVs.
    • Ford also confirms downtime earlier this month as well as a day next week at a plant in Germany that produces the Ford Fiesta.
    • Ford has said the chip shortage could lower its earnings by $1B-$2.5B this year.

    Dont forget ford is focusing moving more production to mexico.

    How fast have things turned since Trump is no longer in office.

    Yep! So much has changed almost overnight. Sad to see all the positive changes with manufacturing in the U.S. now being tossed in favor of cost cutting with moving manufacturing (again) out of the U.S. Globalism vs. Nationalism sucks.

    I was in the market for an F150. Liked the new features on the 21 but found a good deal on a 20 so jumped on it. Now I’m glad I did.

    My lease on my 18 f150 is up in July. Only has 9,xxx miles! But I'll be ordering a 2021 this spring to buy. My dealer said to order by mid April so I have it by July 1st.

    Hope it's enough time.

    Not thrilled about this. I expect the 1st year to have TSB on this new setup.

    It was during the small car market. In fact under trump Ford brought back more jobs to the US.
