Ford Pro to expand dealer network

Each facility will operate a minimum of 72 hours and six days a week. With 24 service bays for Class 1-7 chassis, the facilities will service both Ford and non-Ford makes and models.

Ford kicked off Work Truck Week by announcing that Ford Pro, a telematics and technology-based subsidiary within Ford, will expand its dealer network by adding 120 dedicated, large-bay service hubs across the United States with extended hours and rapid turnaround, noted Tim Baughman, general manager, Ford Pro, North America. Dubbed the Ford Pro Elite Commercial Service center program, is an extension of Ford’s existing 650+ Commercial Vehicle Center dealer network.

Each facility will have a minimum of 24 service bays for Class 1 to 7 commercial vehicles and will service both Ford and non-Ford makes and models. According to the company, the Ford Pro Elite Commercial Service centers will be open a minimum of 72 hours and six days per week. Additionally, the company notes that the facilities will operate a minimum of five mobile service vans to bring service directly to where customers need it, whether that be at a depot or on a job site. 900 mobile service vans are currently in operation, Ford notes, with the goal of 2,100 deployed by the end of 2023.

The first facility opened in January and several more will open and break ground this year, including one in Texas in mid-April, as per the company’s announcement.
