Ford is temporarily halting production and closing eight of its plants in the United States, Mexico and Canada. Affected product lines include the Ford Mustang, Ford F150 and the Bronco sporty SUV.

Almost all of Ford’s rebates and incentives for 2021 models have also been eliminated. According to the report, Ford will now offer a simpler and more consistent promotion.
