Key points (IMHO):

Ford is moving F650/F750 production state side from Mexico. US Mazda 6 production will be stopped, and Ford Fusion production (currently in Mexico) will start simultaneously (operating as overflow production from Mexico) at the plant where the Mazda 6 used to be. Whats this mean? More US jobs.

Ford/UAW Strike Deal; F150 Plant One of the Winners .: Articles

Quote:
Key points that pertain to the Ford F Series includes upgrades to the Kansas City Assembly Plant, which currently builds F150 pickups, but it will soon begin producing the Transit Commercial Van for the US and some foreign markets. Also, the Avon Lake facility in Ohio will soon cease production of the E Series van with production of the F650 and F750 trucks moving to Avon Lake from the current production point in Mexico.

The Flat Rock Assembly Plant (aka Auto Alliance) in Michigan currently builds the Ford Mustang and the Mazda 6 sedan, but there were concerns that when Mazda ends production of the Mazda 6, Ford would not be able to keep the plant busy enough to warrant keeping it open. However, this new 4-year deal outlines that overflow production of the next generation Ford Fusion will be made there. Ford’s prime production point for the Fusion sedan is in Mexico. Now that the Fusion will see production in Flat Rock, the Ford Mustang’s home is safe – which will include production of the next generation Mustang (around 2014).

As it should be! I love driving a truck that was legitimately made in the U.S.A.

In the current political climate, Ford could sure use the "Made in America" theme to good advantage!
