Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley says the company will stop competing in over-served market segments and instead will place big bets on connected vehicles and digital services.
The days of Ford being all things to all people are over, Farley said in a statement ahead of the company's capital markets day event on Monday.
He says Ford will be competing differently, going for tailored ownership experiences rather than jockeying for slivers of market share with complex vehicles in over-served market segments.
The company is expected to detail how it will accomplish this at the daylong event near its headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.
Executives are to explain how Ford will get to a 10 per cent pretax profit margin in 2026. It reiterated 2023 full-year guidance of USD 9 billion to USD 11 billion in adjusted pretax profits.
Ford has split itself into three business units, Ford Blue for gasoline-powered and hybrid vehicles, Ford Model e for electric vehicles and digital products, and Ford Pro, the company's commercial vehicle business.
In addition to Farley and Chief Financial Officer John Lawler, executives from each unit will detail the company's plans.
