Information regarding a the make of the Ford Ranger

Hello,

Anyone here have a link where I can get detailed information on How They Make Ford Ranger the the plant ? I am curious about a few things:

How many time it takes to make a ranger
Is the plant open 24/7 ?
If my Truck is scheduled to be built next week, when will it shipped.
What is the average transit time from the Plant to the dealership to Ottawa, Canada.

Anyone knows a good website explaining all the how they do it of the ford ranger or anyone can answer my q's ?

Thanks!

Hi there,

I went there, but there is little info. I am looking to answer questions like these:

How many time it takes to make a ranger
Is the plant open 24/7 ?
If my Truck is scheduled to be built next week, when will it shipped.
What is the average transit time from the Plant to the dealership to Ottawa, Canada.

Regards,
Peter B.

Dude, Travis posted a link.. from it..

"n 2004, a vehicle took an average of 20.77 hours of labor to roll through the assembly line, 3.5 hours faster than might be expected in comparison to other plants. "

Its open 24/7. The rest of your info depends on Freight Carrier and such.

Ayez besoin de ceci en franšais ?

Your dealer will likely have more information than we would regarding when your truck will be in.

typical. plant has virtaully no electric bill so they close. stop giving the ceos millions in bonuses and keep americans working. but that would mean using common sense, and in the corporate world, all that matters is the all mighty buck.

I know you are excited to get your truck, but it will take a good 14-18 days after the build date to arrive at your dealer. I hope it will come in sooner.

If you click on that link, join the free forum, you can ask.

For those who didn't know, you can also get an X Plan Pin number and purchase your new Ford with a Friends and Family discount at this website of Ford Employees. See here:

http://www.blueovalforums.com/forums...p?showforum=45 .

I believe the price comes out to 4 % above dealer invoice. Yes, you can sometimes do better negotiating the price yourself, but the Pin number gets you a new vehicle at a fixed price, with no negotiating required.
