Automaker Ford is reportedly suspending production at the Michigan factory. Also, it is reducing production at eight additional factories owing to the global semiconductor shortage.
The Michigan plant that makes the Bronco and Ranger pickup will be closed during the weeks of July 5 and July 26 (as reported in Bloomberg). It is not due to the chip shortage.

Ford’s Chief Executive Jim Farley revealed this month that the company had received 190,000 reservations for the Bronco, and around 125,000 had been converted to orders to build the new SUV.
