Global Production Unveiled: A Look at Where Ford Vehicles Are Made

Embark on a journey with Riverview Ford Lincoln in Fredericton, NB, as we delve into the expansive world of Ford's global vehicle production. As an integral part of this global narrative, our Fredericton community plays a significant role. This exploration will uncover the origins of Ford's diverse vehicle lineup and its impact on our local selection.


American Pride in Ford’s Manufacturing


At Riverview Ford Lincoln, we share the same pride many Americans feel towards U.S. manufacturing, especially when it's about Ford. The brand, often hailed as “American-Made,” predominantly assembles its vehicles for the North American market in the United States, with a few plants in Mexico and Canada. Notably, the Chicago, IL plant produces the Ford Explorer and Taurus, while the Kansas City, MO plant is known for the Ford F-150 and Ford Transit.


Ford's Largest Plant: A Colossal Facility


The Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant, a pivotal part of Ford's manufacturing empire, is the largest car manufacturing plant in the United States. Opened in 1951 for military production, this massive facility spans 4.7 million square feet and employs around 7,000 hourly workers. It's been the birthplace of the F-150 since 1957, a model synonymous with robustness and reliability.


Dearborn, MI: The Heart of Ford


Ford's main headquarters, the Henry Ford II World Center, is in Dearborn, Michigan. Constructed in the 1950s, it symbolizes American optimism and progress. This area is rich in Ford history, with the historic Rouge plant and the Henry Ford Museum nearby celebrating the legacy of this iconic brand.


Environmental Commitment and Technological Innovations


Ford's global production is not just about scale; it's also about sustainability and innovation. Across various locations, Ford incorporates environmentally friendly practices and cutting-edge technologies. This commitment is evident in their push towards electric vehicle production. It includes using renewable energy in manufacturing processes. Such advancements ensure that the vehicles at Riverview Ford Lincoln are high-quality and environmentally conscious.


A World of Models


Ford's global plants are a testament to the brand's versatility, producing various models for diverse markets. The Flat Rock, MI plant is renowned for crafting the iconic Ford Mustang and Ford Fusion. Ford brings the Escape and Lincoln MKC to life in their Louisville, KY facility. In Wayne, MI, Ford Focus and Ford C-Max models are assembled. 


Across the border, the Ontario, Canada plant is responsible for the Ford Edge and Flex and the luxurious Lincoln MKT and MKX. Further south, in Cuautitlan, Mexico, the vibrant Ford Fiesta is made, while the Hermosillo plant in Mexico assembles the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ. This diverse range of models, from rugged pickups to sleek sedans, underlines Ford's ability to cater to various tastes and requirements.


Ford's Global Manufacturing Network


In addition to its significant presence in North America, Ford extends its manufacturing capabilities globally. The AutoAlliance Thailand plant, co-owned with Mazda, exemplifies Ford's international partnerships. Located in Thailand, this facility primarily serves the Southeast Asian market, exporting vehicles to Europe and other developing regions. Similarly, Ford's other international factories are strategically positioned to cater to local demands. This global network ensures that each area, including the United States, receives vehicles ideally suited to its market.
