Ford has an 84 day supply of F150s then they are all out.

When will Ford run out of F-150s?

Ford says it has an 84-day supply of its best-selling F-150 pickup. But that doesn't mean buyers won't run into shortages well before then.

The automaker said Wednesday that it suspended production the nation's best-selling vehicle after a fire at a supplier's facility caused it to run out of parts.

Ford has said it doesn't know how long it will be before it can resume production of the F-150, as it scrambles to find a supplier who can provide it with the parts it needs. Ford has also cut back production of the larger versions of the truck, like the F-250, 350 and so on. It doesn't know how long that production problem will last either.

Experts say that if Ford's two F-150 assembly lines remain shut down for more than a couple of weeks, there could start to be shortages.

And when the get the parts in the quality will go to shit on all those trucks as they crank them out to catch up again. No fucking thanks! That is why the Mustang I had was such a pile of shit.

Ugh, my new work truck was ordered through our company fleet management on March 2nd. Really hope it was built already and is just waiting on shipment.

So they already stopped the production line?

Not 100% sure, but based on the article it seems so.

We live by the KC plant and there are random parking lots around stuffed with row after row of f150’s. This would explain why they emptied.
