The article reports on the plan of Ford Motor Co. to make further reductions in its North American truck production plan as of July 2008. The move is a response to the continued deterioration in the U.S. business environment and the accelerated shift away from large trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUV). The company is expecting U.S. industry volume to be between 14.7 million and 15.2 million units in 2008, compared with the previous assumption of 15 million to 15.4 million units. The production actions to be taken by Ford are also mentioned.
