The recalled vehicles are model years 2015, 2016 and 2017 F-150 pickups, along with model year 2017 Super Duty pickups. The recall is associated with faulty door latches that could cause water to infiltrate the door, eventually leading to the failure of the latch.

The automaker is recalling model year 2015 to 2017 F-150 trucks and model year 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks. Door latches that are at risk of freezing up when wet during the winter months or having a "bent or kinked actuation cable", according to the company.

Ford dealerships will install water shields and make any repairs that are necessary free of charge to customers. In total, 1,344,605 units are impacted.

2015-17 F-150, built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, March 12, 2014 to December 31, 2016.

Ford said the cost of the new recall would be reflected in its fourth-quarter results.
