DETROIT: Ford said on Thursday it will idle production of its highly profitable F-150 pickup truck at a plant in Michigan through Sunday due to the global semiconductor chip shortage.

Ford said the latest action is part of its prior forecast the chip shortage could shave US$1 billion to US$2.5 billion off its 2021 profits.
