New Compact Ford Pickup Truck To Be Built In Hermosillo
Ford is once again expanding its operations in neighboring Sonora, where it will begin manufacturing a small pickup truck at its Hermosillo factory.
After months of rumors and speculation, Ford finally announced Thursday that it’s expanding its truck lineup with a new compact pickup called Maverick.
The small truck will be built at the company’s massive plant in Hermosillo, alongside the new Bronco Sport, which went into production in November.
State officials have touted expansions at the Ford plant as a contributor to job gains in recent months. The factory is one of the largest private employers in the city, and thousands of others work for its suppliers.
