This news follows the company's USD 1 billion investment into their South African manufacturing operations. A big chunk (USD 686 million) goes to their Silverton Assembly Plant, which makes the Ranger for South Africa and over 100 global markets.
The investment - spanning installation of new robotics technology and the construction of a new body shop - aims to increase the plant's annual production capacity from 168,000 vehicles to 200,000.
However, note that Southeast Asian markets source their Ranger from Thailand, and so far there is no official word from Ford if they have begun preparing their Rayong plant for the all-new truck.
