LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 26, 2022 – Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear designated Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2022, as KenTRUCKy Day to celebrate Ford’s 109 year-history in the commonwealth and tomorrow night’s special Churchill Downs reveal of the all-new Ford F-Series Super Duty® truck.

“To honor Ford’s investment and this great Team Kentucky partner, I have officially proclaimed, September 27, 2022, KenTRUCKy Day in the commonwealth,” Gov. Beshear said. “Kentuckians have been building Ford trucks since the Model T, and we are thrilled this tradition is going to continue with the all-new Ford F-Series Super Duty.”

Ford is celebrating 45 years of F-Series as the best-selling pickup in America and the leading choice for industries across the country to get the job done. The next-generation Super Duty – built at Ford’s Kentucky Truck plant – debuts tomorrow at 7:15 p.m. EDT at Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. The reveal will be livestreamed on Ford’s YouTube channel.

“Ford’s roots run deep in Kentucky. We hope Kentuckians take just as much pride in building America’s favorite truck as they do in their basketball, bourbon, and thoroughbreds,” said John Savona, vice president, Americas manufacturing and labor affairs, Ford Blue. “On behalf of our 12,000 Ford and UAW employees, we thank Gov. Beshear for supporting this KenTRUCKy Day celebration.”
