2020 Auto show dates and an auto launch gone wrong

The Chicago Auto Show organizers have announced the 2020 dates for the nation’s largest and most-attended car show. It will run from Saturday, February 8th to Monday February 17th. The show’s producer, the Chicago Automobile Trade Association, promises visitors access to nearly 1,000 of the industry’s latest cars, trucks and SUVs. In addition to the latest production, concept and exotic vehicles, the show is filled with chances for attendees to get behind the wheel through multiple indoor and outdoor ride-and-drive experiences. The Chicago Auto Show is held at McCormick Place each year.

The redesigned Ford explorer has caused some issues for the company. The new Chicago plant is catching the blame for the poor roll out due to personnel problems that have caused them to struggle getting the new product out of the door. Sales have plunged for the company as a result. The transformation of the Chicago plant was the most complex of its kind in recent company history.

Ford botches Explorer launch, Chicago plant catches blame

Ford Motor Co.’s Jim Hackett and Wall Street analysts started this year frustrated with one another. Sure, the automaker had been underperforming, but the chief executive appealed for time to show he was fixing things. He assured them the redesigned Explorer SUV rolling out months later would be a proof point.

But rather than help the earnings results Ford delivers this week, the Explorer will be a hindrance. Sales have plunged as a plant plagued by personnel problems has struggled to get the new sport utility vehicle out the door.

The transformation of Ford’s Chicago assembly plant was one of the most complex in the company’s history. Read more
