  • 04-Dec-2008 11:00 EST

As part of its move away from trucks and to cars, Ford Motor Co. on Nov. 26 ceased production of the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator at the Michigan Truck Plant in Wayne, MI. The company said it will invest an additional $75 million in improvements to the body shop, plus improvements of an undisclosed amount in other areas. In 2005, it invested $300 million in the body shop to make it flexible enough for a variety of models. Workers at the plant in 2010 will begin building vehicles on Ford's Global C-segment platform. The company is changing over three North American plants from trucks to cars; the others are in Louisville, KY, and Cuautilan, Mexico.
