Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) is facing the year 2017 as the of his resurrection. Alfa Romeo starts a new journey with two models that will allow them to earn some money, and Fiat will have some movement with their models. In Europe will close this perfect circle Jeep and the launch of the Compass and the update of the Grand Cherokee. However, in the united States things still are something riot and to avoid that they leave the hands as they are working at piece rate.
As has been communicated to the group italo americano assembly plant, which is dedicated to assemble trucks from Dodge, located in Warren (county of Macomb in the state of Michigan) you will receive an extra investment to move part of the production of RAM that is manufactured in Mexico. This investment is not the only one that will be FCA in the united States since they have also announced changes to other factories of the group.
Without moving from Warren, in addition to increasing its production of the RAM truck, also will have two new models of Jeep. The group wants to manufacture in their production lines the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. The idea may seem far-fetched, but considering the size that will take both vehicles and platforms that have been used are a derivation of the logistics is well structured and allows to reduce costs of transport.
Another of the plants that will movement will be the one you have in the city of Toledo in Ohio that will assemble the new generation of the Jeep Wrangler. For this reconvertirán the current assembly lines that currently bring life to the Jeep Cherokee and Wrangler of the current generation in a single one that will make the next iteration of the model flagship of the Jeep brand.
All of these investments represent a financial outlay of about billion dollars and as reported by the firm should be working in the framework of the year 2020. In addition, it will allow the creation of some 2000 new jobs between the two plants. We hope that FCA can reorganize its operations to improve sales and profitability and move them out.
