LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Ford is pouring more money into a Louisville plant.
The automaker is investing $900 million in its Kentucky Truck Plant for upgrades to build the new Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator.
The company says both full-size SUVs will be exported to more than 55 markets globally, including China.
Ford says the investment secures 1,000 hourly jobs at KTP. It's in addition to the $1.3 billion investment and 2,000 jobs created at the plant in 2015 to build the new Super Duty truck.
Kentucky Truck Plant employs nearly 7,600 full-time hourly workers.
