The New Ford Ranger Is in Crazy Demand
Ford has “more than 300,000 hand-raisers” for the new 2019 Ranger pickup truck
it started delivering to retail customers in January, says Kumar Galhotra, group vice president and president of Ford North America. The automaker’s Wayne Assembly plant in Michigan is going into “massive overtime” as a result, Galhotra says.Until last year, Wayne Assembly built Ford Focus compact cars and C-Max hybrids. It will add the new Ford Bronco to its assembly lines alongside the Ranger in 2020.
While “hand-raisers” rarely translate to actual sales, as some intended buyers drop out, the 2019 Ford Ranger is off to a good start after several years away from the North American market, with about 1,200 sold in the first two weeks as supplies trickled to market, according to Galhotra, which exceeded projections.
