DEARBORN, MI—Ford Motor Co. solidified its position as the No. 1 American automaker in terms of vehicles assembled, vehicles exported from America to other countries, and hourly workers employed.

Ford earned the top spot for the sixth consecutive year, according to the latest data from S&P Global Mobility.

Ford employs about 57,000 hourly manufacturing workers in the U.S.—more than any other automaker—and training is underway for a new third shift at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant, which will boost that number by nearly 900 people.

In 2023, Ford assembled more than 1.8 million vehicles in the U.S.—130,000 more than any other automaker. Overall, more than 79 percent of what Ford sells in the U.S. are assembled in the U.S., more than any other automaker.

In 2023, Ford exported 260,000 American-assembled vehicles, including the F-150 pickup, Bronco SUV and Mustang sports car, to other countries, more than any other auto manufacturer. Approximately one in every seven vehicles Ford assembles in the U.S. is exported to international markets, including Canada, Mexico, China, Puerto Rico and South Korea.
