After a lengthy hiatus, a classic automobile from Ford is strongly rumoured to be making a return.
Ford began making Broncos in 1966 and continued to send them out into the world till 1996. The SUV was manufactured for it’s entire life in Michigan. The reason this is important is because Donald Trump had recently been hammering Ford on their decision to move small car production to Mexico. A union rep countered by saying that no jobs would be lost because larger vehicles (like the Ranger and Bronco) would be made in Michigan making up the jobs.
For their part, Ford won’t confirm the return of the iconic vehicle. “We have committed to two additional vehicles moving into the Michigan Assembly Plant, beginning in 2018, and we remain on plan. We are not announcing specific products at this time.”
Bill Johnston, the President of the UAW local 900 autoworkers union says, “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.”
Fans of the legendary SUV are excited!
