Earlier this month, the new Ford Expedition beat out four other three-row, full-size SUVs to take first place in our Beasts of Burden comparison. And the new Lincoln Navigator? Let’s just say the Cadillac Escalade better watch its back. As impressive as both these SUVs are, it should be no surprise that demand has been high. Apparently, though, demand has been so high, Ford had to speed up production just to keep up.
Granted, we already knew the Navigator is flying off dealer lots. But today, Ford announced that it’s increased production targets by 25 percent to keep up with demand. It’s also spent an additional $25 million upgrading its Kentucky Truck Plant to speed up the production line. Ford also added overtime and voluntary weekend shifts in an attempt to keep up with demand.
“The response from customers regarding our new full-size SUVs has been exceptional,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s head of global operations. “Using a combination of Ford’s advanced manufacturing and American hard work and ingenuity, we’ll deliver more high-quality Lincoln Navigators and Ford Expeditions to customers than originally planned.”
