Ford to Invest $200M in Testing Complex

Ford Motor Co. will be investing $200 million in a new vehicle testing complex located in Allen Park, MI. Construction on the complex will launch later this year, with completion anticipated for 2019. The operation, which will include a wind tunnel and climatic chamber, will sit on 13 acres next to Ford’s Drivability Test Facility on Enterprise Drive.

“This new wind tunnel facility will not only allow us to test our performance and racing vehicle lineup, but will also enable us to share innovations across all our global Ford products,” said Dave Pericak, Ford Performance global director, in a statement. The tunnel chambers will be able to accommodate large-frame vehicles, such as the company’s Super Duty pickup.
