Wayne, MICH., - Anticipation is building at the Michigan Assembly Plant. From all the talk, to the ongoing construction in the plant, the Ford Ranger is top of mind.
The excitement reached a new level as the first 2019 Ranger was manually assembled by the site Launch Team. Prior to this unit, the others were built at the Pilot Plant in Dearborn.
After several units were built at the Pilot Plant, it now becomes very real for employees seeing a Ranger that their co-workers assembled.
The Ford Focus and C-Max production will end mid-year, and then the ramp up for the Ranger will be in full swing.
Not only is the Ranger a hot topic in the plant, the return of the Ford Bronco is also causing quite the buzz as it is next in line for production at the site.
