The following information is from the latest FDNB (Fleet Distribution News Bulletin) and subject to change.



MODEL                       SCHEDULED DOWN WEEKS


EcoSport                     None

Fusion                         7/2

Expedition                  7/2, 7/9

Navigator                   7/2, 7/9

Flex                              7/2 (2019MY)

MKT                             7/2 (2019MY)

Escape                         6/18 – 7/16

MKC                            None

Taurus                         7/2

Explorer                      7/2

Edge                            7/2

MKX                             7/2

F-150                           7/2, 7/9 (Dearborn)

                                    7/2, 7/9 (Kansas City)

Transit                         7/2, 7/9

MKZ                             7/2

Continental                 None

Mustang                      None

Focus                           5/7-6/18

C-MAX                         5/7-6/18

Fiesta                          3/19, 3/26

Super Duty                  7/2, 7/9


Interesting to note that MAP (Michigan Assembly Plant) lists "Down" weeks for 5/7 - 6/18 for Focus and C-MAX when production for those models ends on 05/03/2018. Perhaps the "Down" weeks listed are related to the plant retooling for the next generation Ranger with a 11/26/2018 Job #1 Date.


Reason for the extended "Down" time listed for Escape is unknown at this time.

Ive been asking about the down weeks (re:MAP) and everyone Ive asked is surprised by it so I have no clue whats going on. Im not sure they have a definite plan yet.
