A few weeks ago, we reported that production of the 2021 version of the Ford F-150 was postponed, mainly due of course to the coronavirus crisis and the closings of assembly plants.
Now, for the second time in just a few weeks, the model could see its arrival delayed again. At least that is what the F150Gen14.com website is suggesting. The site, dedicated to the new generation of the model, reports that Ford will postpone the start of production to October 12 at its Dearborn plant and November 9 at its Kansas City plant. The latest scheduled dates were September 28 and October 26, respectively.
The website bases its information on the fleet-model newsletter that has been distributed by the company. Ford hasn't confirmed anything yet.
The delay in starting production also pushes back the time when consumers can start placing orders for the new F-150. The date for reserving a 2021 edition thus changes from June 15 to July 15. For those interested in purchasing the current model, Ford is still accepting orders until May 29 on the 2020 truck.
