Ford issues recall for more than 67,000 vehicles
Select Ford truck and SUV models are under a safety recall over gearshift malfunctions.
The affected vehicles are the 2020 Ford Ranger and 2020 F-150 with 10-speed automatic transmission, and 2020 Expeditions with the police package and 10-speed automatic transmission.
In affected vehicles, a clip that locks the gearshift cable to the transmission may not be fully seated. Over time, a partially seated clip may allow the transmission to be in a gear state different from the gearshift position selected by the driver. This could allow the driver to move the shifter to Park and remove the ignition key, without the transmission gear actually being in Park. If the parking brake is not applied in those cases, the vehicle could move unintentionally, increasing the risk of injury or crash.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.
This action affects 55,158 vehicles in the United States and federal territories, 12,090 in Canada and 681 in Mexico.
