Next-Gen Ram Heavy-Duty Truck Production Moves From Mexico to MI

In one, he wrote, "More great news as a result of historical Tax Cuts and Reform: Fiat Chrysler announces plan to invest more than $1 BILLION in MI plant, relocating their heavy-truck production from Mexico to MI, adding 2,500 new jobs and paying $2,000 bonus to US employees!"

"It is only proper that our employees share in the savings generated by tax reform and that we openly acknowledge the resulting improvement in the USA business environment by investing in our industrial footprint accordingly", CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a press release.

The investment announcement comes a year after Fiat Chrysler revealed initial plans to invest in Warren for the launch of the new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

In January 2017, the company announced that it would invest a portion of $1 billion in Warren Truck Assembly to expand the Jeep product line with the addition of the all-new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said earlier Thursday it will boost wages to $11 an hour and also give as much $1,000 bonuses to employees after Trump and Congress cut the US corporate tax rate to 21 percent from 35 percent late previous year. "It is only proper that our employees share in the savings generated by tax reform and that we openly acknowledge the resulting improvement in the USA business environment by investing in our industrial footprint accordingly".

Miguel Ceballos, FCA spokesman for Mexico, said the company in 2018 and 2019 expects more growth in Mexico, and the moment it stops producing the Ram Heavy Duty pickups it will start to produce the new commercial vehicle, "which still does not have a name", Ceballos said.

This investment is on top of the $1 billion the OEM committed to invest in the Warren factory past year to accommodate its Jeep product line, which included building its all-new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer.

$1.5 billion in the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant (Michigan) to build the next-generation Ram 1500 truck. At that time, FCA said it would spend $1 billion across two plants: Warren and Toledo where retooling is needed to make a new Jeep Wrangler pickup.

The company said the investment announced Thursday is separate from a 2015 labor deal with the United Auto Workers union.
