Ford too will decrease truck production.

17 06 2008

As GM is dealing with the thought of off-loading Hummer, it seems as though the gas bug is infectious: Ford is temporarily (really?) closing the plants in Michigan that make the Lincoln Navigator and the Ford Expedition. The roughly 1,400 hourly workers there will see 95% of their paychecks thanks to the UAW. Ford is said to be making this sort of decrease in truck production permanent, with increases in car production… as it reacts to pump prices instead of having seen this coming.
