Going from 420 to 450 is all very well (it has been reported elsewhere - GoAuto I think), and it's not happening until mid year.
In the short term it should lessen the backlog for XR's & FPV vehicles, but has anyone yet to think about where the extra capacity for 32,000 Territory's is going to come from.
Now before anyone states the obvious, yes, I know a second shift will need to be employed, but isn't the bottleneck in the Ford production line the Geelong engine line?
There is LOTS of behind the scenes stuff going on that we're still to hear about yet, so let's not all get carried away. We should instead be picking up these little crumbs and trying to piece together the big picture.
