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.

So they're gutting what's left? I don't see how they can get rid of 2400 parts and still have the same vehicle. It's not like the f150 is a new model.

I guess they can start with the crappy carpet skid plate under the engine that just falls off anyway.
