2020 Ford Super Duty Chassis Cabs Ready for the Next-Generation of Work


The 2020 Ford Super Duty is the toughest, hardest-working generation of Class 3-5 chassis cab vehicles yet. Its high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body is lighter than steel yet incredibly strong, meaning some of that weight savings can be invested in more robust axles, chassis and steering components. The fully boxed under-cab and C-channel aft-of-cab frame are 95 percent high-strength steel. This makes for dependable towing and hauling performance with a wide weight range of service bodies suitable for any vocation.

The lineup has been given a technology update for 2020 starting with standard modems featuring 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices to help keep drivers and crews connected whether on the job or on the road. Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies are now available. These include available auto high-beam headlamps and available lane departure warning. Automatic Emergency Braking, now available on 2020 Super Duty starting with the base XL truck, can help operators avoid or mitigate collisions. Vocational customization is simplified with an available programmable upfitter interface module.

New Ford Telematics and Ford Data Services are available across the Super Duty lineup to help commercial customers operate their fleets more efficiently. The technology enables fleet managers to enhance uptime and asset utilization, optimize running costs, improve driver behavior and protect their fleets using Ford original equipment-grade telematics software. It integrates with a company’s existing telematics service provider or can take vehicle data directly into its own information technology system – giving customers the power of choice. Vocational customization is simplified with an available class-exclusive programmable upfitter interface module.

Ford is the only Class 3-5 manufacturer that designs and builds all of its own engines and transmissions. Offering a choice between the standard 6.2-liter gas V8, all-new 7.3-liter gas V8 and third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke® diesel V8 allows customers to spec the performance, efficiency and cost benefits that are right for their business. All engines are available with Ford’s all-new TorqShift® heavy-duty 10-speed automatic transmission with optional live drive power takeoff, which comes standard with diesel-powered models.

GM plans to resume production May 18 at 'majority' of N.A. operations

GM

DETROIT -- General Motors said it is planning to resume production at the majority of its North American plants on May 18 as it prepares operations amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Considerable planning is under way to restart operations in North America," the automaker said in its first-quarter report released Wednesday. "Based on conversations and collaboration with unions and government officials, GM is targeting to restart the majority of manufacturing operations on May 18 in the U.S. and Canada under extensive safety measures."

The alert to workers came after Fiat Chrysler Automobiles on Tuesday announced plans to resume production at most U.S. plants the week of May 18.

In a statement Tuesday, the UAW did not oppose FCA's target restart date.

"As for the start date, the companies contractually make that decision and we all knew this day would come," UAW President Rory Gamble said in the statement. "Our UAW focus and role is and will continue to be, on health and safety protocols to protect our members."

GM last week created a health and safety manual to instruct team leaders on the company's new safety protocol.

"In these uncertain times, we must focus on controlling what we can, and we will continue to take the appropriate actions. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are ready to adapt and make any changes to policy in accordance with relevant health and safety protocols issued by authorities," CEO Mary Barra and Jim Glynn, vice president of global workplace safety, said in the 48-page guide.

FORD TO BEGIN PHASED PRODUCTION AND OPERATIONS RESTART IN NORTH AMERICA MAY 18 WITH ENHANCED SAFETY PROTOCOLS

  • Ford is planning to resume production and operations in North America beginning May 18, taking a phased approach
  • Ford will also begin returning some team members whose jobs cannot be done remotely such as vehicle testing and design, to work beginning May 18, including approximately 12,000 personnel in North America
  • Ford parts distribution centers will resume full operations in North America on May 11 to support Ford dealers in providing service to keep vehicles on the road 
  • Robust safety and care measures have been implemented globally to support a safe and healthy environment for the company’s workforce with health assessment measures, personal protective equipment and facility modifications to increase social distancing
Dearborn, Mich., May 7, 2020 – Ford is targeting a phased restart for its North America operations beginning May 18, including restarting vehicle production in North America and bringing back the first wave of employees that are not able to do their jobs remotely.

“We’ve been working intently with state and federal governments, our union partners and a cross-section of our workforce to reopen our North American facilities,” said Jim Farley, Ford’s chief operating officer. “We have reopened our facilities in China, successfully begun our phased restart in Europe and have been producing medical equipment in Michigan for more than six weeks and are using the lessons from all of that to ensure we are taking the right precautions to help keep our workforce here safe.”

In this phased restart, Ford’s North American parts depots will resume full operations on Monday, May 11. On May 18, Ford’s North American assembly plants previously operating on three-shift patterns will return with two-shifts, most two-shift plants will return on one shift and most one-shift plants will operate on one shift. Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Flat Rock, Mich. and Oakville Assembly Complex in Oakville, Ont., are expected to resume production the week of May 25 on one shift. Components plants will restart production as needed to support this plan.

The ramp-up process will be gradual as workers adjust to the new health and safety protocols and the entire supply chain comes up to speed.

“We’ve developed these safety protocols in coordination with our union partners, especially the UAW, and we all know it will take time to adjust to them,” said Gary Johnson, Ford’s Chief Manufacturing and Labor Officer. “We are in this together and plan to return to our normal operating patterns as soon as we are confident the system is ready to support.”

Ford is implementing a staggered approach to bring back approximately 12,000 “location-dependent” employees who are not able to do their jobs remotely, encompassing functions including product development, IT, facilities management and more. The staggered approach allows Ford to effectively implement new safety protocols and provide proper personal protective equipment (PPE) for all employees as they return to work.

To guide the workforce with the new health and safety protocols, Ford has compiled a comprehensive Manufacturing Return to Work Playbook to help protect its workforce, assembled using best practices and input from experts around the world. Some of the safety protocols include:

Daily online employee and visitor health self-certifications completed before work every day. Employees or visitors who indicate they may have symptoms or may have been exposed to the virus will be told not to come to Ford facilities.

No-touch temperature scans upon arrival – anyone with a raised temperature will not be permitted to enter and will need to be cleared of symptoms before returning to work.

Required face masks for everyone entering a Ford facility. Every Ford team member will be provided a care kit including face masks and other items to help keep them healthy and comfortable at work.
Safety glasses with side shields or face shields will be required when jobs don’t allow for social distancing.

There will be more time between production shifts to limit interaction between employees and allow for additional cleaning.

Ford is producing face masks at Van Dyke Transmission Plant for use at its facilities across North America and face shields at its Troy Design & Manufacturing facility in Plymouth, Mich. Company-provided face masks will be required for anyone working at a Ford site, in line with the company’s global protocols, while safety glasses or face shields will be required in some instances. By producing face masks and face shields, Ford is helping reduce demand on stretched supply chains for personal protection equipment also needed by medical services and other industries. 

Employees able to do their jobs remotely will continue to do so until advised otherwise.
