Of the lot, 231,664 trucks are in the US, and 29,953 are in Canada.

The recall covers F-250, F-350 and F-450 trucks from the 2017 to 2019 model years. "All the trucks have electric tailgate latch release switches in the tailgate handle".

The automaker says that water can enter the electrical wiring, causing a short that results in switch activation that opens the tailgate latch. The company noted that no crashes or injuries have been reported related to either recall. Trucks subject to recall feature electric tailgate latch release switches in the tailgate handle. Ford built the SUVs at the Kentucky Truck Plant from October 8, 2015, to November 3, 2019.

Not only will thousands of Ford F-Series Super Duty pickups need to go back for potentially buggy daytime running lights, as a recall detailed earlier this week, but the automaker also announced a larger campaign for the truck.

A second, smaller recall involving fewer than 4,000 Ford Explorers and Aviators with 3.0-liter engines. Through vibration and engine roll, hard contact between the two fuel lines could occur, causing the convolute on the vapor line to rub through the plastic liquid fuel line, leaking fuel. The recalled Explorers and Aviators are all 2020 models.

The vehicles were built at Ford's Chicago plant between mid-January and July 17, 2019.

To fix the issue, Ford dealers will inspect the SUVs' full-length, yellow-colored protective convolute on the liquid fuel line. If it's too short, owners will get one the correct length with a securing tie strap at no charge.

Shares of Ford stock were up 1.01% as of 3:44 p.m. EST on Friday.
