Ford Blue President Kumar Galhotra said in an interview that the 2024 F-150 will have 2,400 parts less than the 2023 F-150.
Ford CEO Jim Farley has been quite clear that he believes the automaker’s current ICE lineup is far too complex, making it a point to note that future models will be simpler, which is not only one way to boost the company’s profitability, but improve quality and also make things a bit easier on consumers. We’ve already seen this shift begin to happen with the 2023 Ford F-150 – which dropped some configurations for the current year – with the 2024 model year set to bring about even more of a reduction in complexity as the automaker aims to have “best in class” quality across its Ford Blue lineup. As Ford Blue president Kumar Galhotra recently explained to Automotive News
, we’ll see even more of this in the refreshed 2024 Ford F-150, too.
“In the coming months, we’re going to reduce the orderable combinations on the F-150 by a magnitude that we’ve never seen before,” Galhotra said. “Less complexity means fewer parts. From one model year to another, we’re taking about 2,400 parts out of the F-150. That means many fewer parts to engineer, test and manage quality on.”
Aside from this reduction in complexity, the 2024 Ford F-150 will bring forth a mid-cycle refresh with a number of notable changes. Ford Authority
first spotted a 2024 F-150 prototype out driving around back in early December 2022, and since then, we’ve also come across revised versions of the Ford F-150 Raptor R and Tremor, as well as Ford benchmarking the Chevy Silverado against its forthcoming pickup.
