Updates on the Flat Rock plant:

* Next generation Mustang to be produced there sometime next year. No surprise.

* Fusion production to start in late August with the addition of a second shift. Donna, that will be 1,400 new workers. :) The timing is new.

* Lincoln MKS will be produced here with the next generation, shifted from Chicago. It is noted that the car will be produced on a new platform (It'll be a stretched version of the Fusion platform). MKS to Flat Rock is new news.

That will leave Chicago with Explorer and Taurus (the Taurus will also be built off that new platform. Arguably, it's not really a new platform, just a modified version of the Fusion platform). I think the new Taurus could see a bit of a sales increase since the new one fixes the interior problems of the current model.
