Update on SPC Ford Super Duty Truck Contracts Staff has received multiple calls about the SPC Ford Super Duty Truck contracts. The factory cutoff date has passed for 2015 models and Ford Motor Company has yet to release 2016 pricing on the Ford Super Duty Trucks. The SPC Governing Board has requested contract extensions on the following, but we are waiting for Ford’s decision:

Ford F-250 Super Duty Pick Up Currie Motors, Frankfort, IL Ford F-350 Super Duty Pick Up Currie Motors, Frankfort, IL Ford F-450 XL Chassis Cab Currie Motors, Frankfort, IL Ford F-550 XL Chassis Cab Currie Motors, Frankfort, IL Ford F350XL 4×2 Chassis Cab Landmark Ford, Springfield, IL

There are three possible outcomes: 1. Ford will grant the contract extensions and rollover pricing to 2016 models 2. Ford will agree to the contract extensions with justifiable price increases that will need to be approved by the SPC Governing Board 3. Ford will not agree to the contract extensions and the vehicles will need to be rebid

Staff will keep members informed of Ford’s decision. For questions or additional information on the Currie Motors contracts, please contact Tom Sullivan, 815-464-9200 or CurrieFleet@gmail.com, and for the Landmark Ford contract, please contact Lyle Snow, 800-798-9912, ext 253, 217-553-2508, mobile or lylesnow@msn.com.
