Ford to Revive Ranger and Bronco, Both Trucks to be Built in Michigan
Ford will revive the Ranger pickup and the Bronco SUV and will build both trucks in Michigan, two details revealed in a contract agreement with the UAW.
The American automaker has reached a tentative agreement with UAW that would bring $10,000 in signing bonuses and $9 billion in new U.S. product investments, retaining or creating 8,500 jobs. The agreement still needs to be voted on, but includes a commitment to manufacture the Ranger midsize pickup at the American automakerís Michigan Assembly Plant. In addition, Ford plans on reviving the Bronco nameplate, which would be built in Michigan as well.
It is expected that Ford will stop making the Focus and C-Max families of vehicles in Michigan in 2018.
