CLEVELAND, OH – Ford said it plans to add a third shift at its Cleveland, Ohio, engine plant to meet customer demand for its 3.5L EcoBoost and 3.7L V-6 engines. The 3.7L V-6 is used in Ford’s F-150.

“Our engine plant in Cleveland is the first and only facility in North America to produce EcoBoost engines, and we are tripling production capacity to meet customers’ growing needs for fuel-efficient engines,” said Mark Fields, president of The Americas, at an employee celebration at the plant today.” EcoBoost engines are a key part of our plan to give customers the power of choice – from EcoBoost-powered vehicles and hybrids to plug-in hybrids and full electrics.”

Ford added that it plans to add a shift of F-150 production at its Kansas City Assembly Plant later this month to meet product demand.
