Ford has been focusing on improving the quality of its vehicles, especially those in early production, to reduce the number of recalls for vehicles. As it stands, Ford Motor Company has had more recalls in the United States than any other automaker, with over 8.6 million recalled cars over the last year. So ensuring the vehicles undergo quality checks before mass production is an excellent strategy that makes customers happy and saves the company millions. The S650 Ford Mustang is just one example of such quality checks, but 2023 Ford Super Duty is also under review during the early production phase.

Ford Super Duty Quality Inspection: Details

The level of quality review is relatively high with every inch of the truck, and all engineers are invited to inspect it from top to bottom. According to Motor1, checking every little detail of the truck takes around three hours but should uncover any issues before the vehicles ever reach customers. It’s especially important to ensure the Ford Super Duty family is as reliable as possible, considering that it’s Ford’s most profitable vehicle range.

Every step in the inspection process (along with every small issue that might be found) is entered into a global system so that future problems are identified and addressed promptly. Given that the Ford Super Duty trucks are built at the Kentucky Truck plant in Louisville and the Ohio Assembly in Sheffield, having a global system is useful so both facilities can relay important information about the truck quality inspections simultaneously.

Quality and reliability is everything when it comes to vehicles built for work. And at the moment, Ford maintains a lion’s share of the 3/4-ton and full ton truck market, and even more so when looking at commercial work vehicles, which includes vans and commercical medium duty vehicles.

New Ford Super Duty began rolling off the line as of October 2022, and receiving 150,000 orders in its first five weeks. That’s a lot of trucks, and many bucks that would be spent should a recall need to transpire, which is why it’s crucial for the inspections to happen, to ensure the vehicles are as reliable as possible before leaving the plant. Hopefully, Ford’s step towards improving the quality of its cars will increase its ranking in the vehicle reliability department, but only time will tell.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
