How to get your Ford F-150 back on track after being stolen
Posted On June 14, 2021
The Ford F150 has been the target of a carjacking, an armed robbery and a home invasion, according to a news release from the Michigan Department of State Police.
The state has not released the names of those involved.
The F-Series is one of the most popular pickup trucks in the U.S. and has become one of its most popular vehicles in recent years.
The theft of the F-Class in March 2016 sent the market into free fall, with sales plunging 50 percent to a record low.
The dealership had already begun selling the vehicle for a discount, but Ford decided to stop selling the pickup and move production of the model to China, where it would be assembled for the Chinese market.
The dealer said that some F-15s and F-14s were stolen in that raid, as well.
Ford said the theft was connected to a similar incident in late March, in which an F-100 was stolen from a Michigan dealership.
The stolen F-series model was later sold at a local dealer.
