The plan is part of its commitment to invest $6.2 billion in U.S. plants by 2015 under an agreement reached in October 2011 with the UAW, the automaker said today.

Ford said the investments will create 2,350 hourly jobs and allow it to retain another 3,240 hourly jobs. The new jobs are part of the 12,000 Ford previously said it would add or retain in the United States by 2015 under the UAW deal.
