2005 Ford F-150 to be Built at New Dearborn Truck Plant

November 12, 2002

Ford Motor Company announced that beginning in 2004, the Ford F-150 pickup truck will be built at the new Dearborn Truck Plant now under construction at the Ford Rouge Center in Dearborn, MI. The new assembly plant construction is the centerpiece of one of the nation's largest industrial redevelopment projects. For more than 85 years, the Ford Rouge Center represented a key element of Henry Ford's vision of vertical integration - a self-contained manufacturing complex, where most vehicle components were made from raw materials and assembled into a finished product. Ford F-150 also will continue to be built at Norfolk Assembly and Kansas City Assembly Plants. Construction of the new assembly plant is scheduled to be completed by late 2003, with assembly operations beginning in 2004.
