A Michigan assembly plant will build the revived Lincoln Continental sedan.
Ford said this week that Flat Rock Assembly in Detroit will build the Continental, which goes on sale sometime next year.
The 28-year-old Flat Rock plant builds the Ford Mustang sports car and the Ford Fusion sedan. It has 3000 factory workers on two shifts.
Ford says it does not plan to hire additional workers when it adds the Continental to the line. The company would not say when production will begin.
Ford announced in April that the Continental would return next year after a 14-year hiatus. Continentals were made at Michigan’s Wixom Assembly Plant from 1958 to 2002. That plant closed in 2007.
