Chrysler News: Rumorpile: The FCA UAW Production Shuffle

Recommended Posts

More details about the tentative labor agreement between the UAW and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is coming to light. Automotive News has learned from sources that more production moving would be taking place.

 

As we reported last week, FCA's Toledo factory would be saying good-bye to the Cherokee to make room for more Wranglers and the possibility of a new truck. The Cherokee is expected to be built Belvidere Assembly in Illinois.

 

The big change in production is the Ram 1500 moving from the Warren Truck Plant to the Sterling Heights Assembly plant. This will mean production of Chrysler 200, currently built in Sterling Heights, will move to another plant. According to a source, that plant will be the Toluca, Mexico one. This is the current home of the Dodge Journey and North American version of the Fiat 500. Along with the 200, the Dodge Dart will move to Toluca.

 

So what is happening with the Warren Truck Plant? That will be retooled and converted from a body-on frame to a unibody production facility to make way for the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, the rumored three-row luxury SUV.

Either they're expecting volumes of the Grand Wagoner to mimic that of the Ram (doubtful, even with Sergio's rose tinted glasses) or something else is also going in there.

My thinking that it could be used as secondary plant for Grand Cherokee.
