"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.

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.
