Ford is adding a week of production at most of its North American factories this year for an additional 40,000 vehicles, Reuters says. Plants will be idled for just one week this summer instead of the traditional two.

GM and Chrysler will also limit downtime. Three of Chrysler’s U.S. factories, including the Jefferson North plant in Detroit, will not observe the summer shutdown. GM does not have a formal summer shutdown period for its factories. Earlier this week GM North America chief Mark Reuss said GM could not afford a break.
