I may be wrong but I think that most of this was previously announced? Maybe just not all in one place.

This is an extension to the original delay and they are now saying they are focusing their attention to the Big Bronco and its summer launch

I just read it again and I don't see any change to the Hermosillo production pause from May 3 to May 17. Other plants perhaps but I don't see anything different at Hermosillo??

I am not seeing any additional delays for the Mexico plant in that article. And the Ford guy was quoted April 8. So maybe my June 14 build date will hold? Hmmm......

  • Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico is down through the week of May 10.
From that article. Sounds like it's nothing particularly new at this point. Still anything can happen but Bronco sport orders in the cue should start moving.

The semiconductor shortage is a real concern. I had a year left on my lease but once I started seeing news reports about auto manufacturing feeling the effects I knew it was time to move for the BS now rather than when the lease is up.

oh zero doubt and I've heard many start ups are working to jump in and fill some gaps, but it will get worse before better. I'd guess anyone with a build in motion is OK...but going forward it may be nearly impossible. I would guess once sports are filled, they shift chips to the F-150S sitting on lots waiting. That's gold sitting there doing nothing. Local HIGH volume dealer has EIGHT ....less than ten...F-150S on the lot. This dealer has three stores, and has been in business for fifty years.

Looking on the positive side, I'm hoping the issues over the past year will induce more localized (antifragile) supply chains in the long-term.
Creating localized supply chains will need to include localized manufacturing to be truly effective.
Ford like most companies are just in the discussion stages.
They all need to wait untill we get rid of this oh so deadly to our United States Socialist Liberal hand out free money and bankrupt our nation Soon to be communist government that illegally took the white house from the people.
Only we can prevent this.
As in "We The People"....

I read somewhere Ford is rethinking the whole "just in time inventory" model to avoid these parts/supplier issues in the future. Won't be fixed any time soon but changes improvements to this parts shortage are in the works.
