UAW Worker Accidentally Confirms Production Of Ford Bronco, Ranger

Mon, Oct 3, 2016 1,368

We’ve been hearing rumors that Ford will put the Bronco and Ranger back into production, but it seems those might not be rumors anymore.

Bill Johnson, plant chairman for United Automobile Workers Local 900, recently let it slip that the Bronco and Ranger are the two models Ford will produce at its plant in Wayne, Mich., after its small car production is moved to Mexico, according to the Detroit Free Press. Johnson revealed the information while commenting on claims made by presidential candidate Donald Trump that Ford is firing workers and moving to Mexico.

“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,” Johnson told the Detroit Free Press.

Although Ford has yet to officially announce production plans for the Ranger and Bronco, Johnson’s comments suggest that the details have already been disclosed to the UAW.
