FordIf today’s news regarding production delays at Ford was a game of Clue, the first victim would be Bronco, caused by hardtops. Now it’s Mach-E, with lack of chips being the weapon.

While production at the company’s Cuautitlan, Mexico plant will continue, some deliveries will be delayed by six weeks or more.

That’s because the affected cars have been built already, but they need semiconductor chips before they can be delivered.

The shortage has been ongoing for a long time now, and Ford has been hit hard. It said that at the end of the second quarter it had 60,000 to 70,000 vehicles sitting on lots, waiting for chips.

There have been other delays involving Mach-E production, which has led the company to offer free charging and other make-goods.

Looks like, as if with Bronco, Ford will continue to have to do so.

Is the F-150 going to be found killed by rope? Or will the Escape be located in Louisville with a revolver slug in its head?

Ford’s production schedule really is starting to look like Mr. Boddy’s mansion.
