Global Chip Shortage Behind Ford’s Backlog on F-150 Trucks 

Share post:

The global semiconductor shortage is severely impacting automotive production around the world.

Ford also stated that it will build and maintain vehicles for several weeks and then deliver them to dealers once the modules are available and comprehensive controls are completed.
