Ford has a lot going on at the moment. Not only is the company in the midst of releasing its 2020 model year lineups, but they also have numerous automotive innovations they’re working on the bring the industry closer to the future than ever before. From hybrid and electric vehicle enhancements and safety and driver assistance improvements to self-driving and autonomous vehicle collaborations, Ford is at the forefront of cutting edge automotive technology. But they can’t continue to innovate unless they have a state-of-the-art facility to innovate in. And that’s why Ford was so proud to announce that its innovation goals are about to grow exponentially thanks to its new Research & Engineering Center – which we’re going to check out right here.

Ford’s new Research & Engineering Center will be located in Dearborn, MI, and will be used by the company for numerous purposes – but the purpose we’re most excited about is the work Ford will be doing on automotive innovations. The new campus will be completely up and running by 2025 and house well over 6,000 employees. Now, it’s just a waiting game to see what innovation comes from this endeavor.
“From the Rouge to Highland Park in Detroit to Dagenham in the U.K., Ford has leveraged innovative workspaces and facilities to inspire our teams to invent the future. Our vision for our Dearborn Research & Engineering campus – and our new Corktown campus and Ann Arbor robotics lab – will enable Ford to lead the next era of transportation and personal mobility, and help us continue our founding mission of driving human progress through the freedom of movement.” – Jim Hackett, Ford President and CEO
