Ford Bronco production reportedly back in the saddle
An iconic symbol on American roads is apparently coming back, and helping people keep their jobs.
Several outlets are echoing confirmation that Ford will begin Bronco production again. The move is part of their contract with the United Auto Workers union. The Detroit Free Press has the inside scoop, reporting that the deal includes a $700 million investment in the Michigan assembly plant. Work on a new Ranger and Bronco are expected to be done at that plant. Work on the Ford Focus and C-Max will be moving to Mexico.
The Detroit Free Press quotes UAW Local 900 Chairman, Bill Johnson as saying, "We hate to see the products go to Mexico, but with the Ranger and the Bronco coming to Michigan Assembly that absolutely secures the future for our people a lot more than the Focus does." Several media outlets are reporting the Ford Bronco will be back for 2020.
