News, Ford is temporarily halting production of
Super Duty pickups for two weeks, due to slowing demand for the
heavy duty hauler. Ford is
attributing slackening SD sales to the downturn in the housing sector.
Duty line was recently revised for the 2008
model year with frame improvements, sheetmetal changes, interior upgrades,
and a new 6.4-liter diesel engine.
F-450, and F-550 Super Dutys are produced at Ford's Kentucky Truck
Assembly Plant in Louisville, which will stop production October 8th
through October 22nd.
pickup sales were the slowest since February 2007, when the first 2008
Super Dutys started arriving at dealerships.
