Ford F-100 put on hold

First rumors about a F-100 were revealed back in May. It was supposed to be a smaller version of the F-150 based on a mid-sized truck from South Africa that uses the Ranger name. Now it seems Ford decided to put aside those plans. The new truck was to have been built at the facility in Wayne, Michigan, but Ford will now retool that plant to produce small cars. The funding for the F-100 will now be utilized to further the EcoBoost technology that extends fuel economy. Rumors are going around that Ford is hoping that the fuel savings from EcoBoost will eliminate the need for a truck like the F-100.

It could still build the F-100 at one of its other truck plants if it later determines there is a need for the product. Ford has also taken steps to ensure that it can quickly change its mind if it decides it needs to bring the South African Ranger to the United States.

Though sales have collapsed in the face of rising fuel prices, Ford’s F-series remains the best-selling vehicles in the United States.
