Ford announced in a press release that its Missouri-made F-150 pickup trucks with EcoBoost engines had reached and surpassed the one million vehicles sold mark. The F-150s are manufactured at the company’s Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo, Missouri.
More than 632,000 vehicles, including more than 300,000 Ford F-150s, were made in Missouri in 2015. Ford recently announced record sales for the F-Series trucks in April, marking the second month in a row with more than 70,000 F-Series trucks sold.
In addition to the F-Series, the Ford Transit, also produced at the Claycomo plant, saw sales go up 31.8 percent from 2015, and led to Ford having its best May van sales in 38 years.
Across the state, Missouri talent drives automotive manufacturing into the future with significant production from Ford, Harley Davidson and GM. Since 2010, more than $2 billion has been invested in Missouri automotive facilities and Missouri has supported this growth with strategic incentive programs.
