Anyone want to guess the amount in millions just sitting there? 😯

About 1200 or so trucks there, so at 50K each thats $60 Million.

I wonder what option forces them to be stored at the airport? 

 

They build a lot more than a truckload every few hours.

 

 

That orange and white smokestack in the background is the factory. They have stored some before at an empty hanger and there is a lot of them in the lots at the factory.

Some time ago I was looking at a Google Earth view of the Kentucky Speedway and I was surprised to see their parking lots full of new Ford p/u's, I would assume from Ford's Louisville assembly plant. So GM is not the only one to store vehicles in this manner. I seem to remember reading about a lot of new vehicles being flooded at a Tampa Bay/St. Pete area airport parking lots by an unexpected storm.

There was an article a few months ago that Ford built the new version 21's before their testing was done. They built them and parked them till the testing got done so they could keep the plants going while that happened. Then once the testing was done the plan was to update the software on these trucks and ship them. There were pics in the article of the lots around the Detroit airport full of new trucks.
