Ford Motor Co. said Monday it is adding 850 hourly jobs to three facilities at its Rouge Center to help build the aluminum-body 2015 F-150 pickup, which will hit showrooms later this year.

Workers already have been hired and are being trained.

The new jobs will be divided among the center’s three facilities. Dearborn Truck will receive more than 500 new workers; Dearborn Stamping will get nearly 300; and Dearborn Diversified, which makes components, will receive more than 50 workers. The center now has nearly 5,000 hourly workers.
