The automaker says it is shifting production from Mexico to its Avon Lake plant. Production will begin early next year.

The move announced Friday is part of a pledge Ford made with union leaders in 2011 to shift medium-duty truck production from Mexico.

The company says it's investing $168 million to make the change.
