Not long after Ford made the announcement they would be staying in Michigan instead of moving to a plant in Mexico, Fiat Chrysler said it would spend $1 billion on U.S. manufacturing that will include bringing their Michigan and Ohio plants up to date. In addition the renovations will create 2,000 jobs.
According to Fox News, the Warren, Michigan plant will be able to produce the pickup that’s currently built in Mexico. It also will produce the Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. The Toledo, Ohio will make the new Jeep pickup. And although the automaker has big plans for the American plants, USA Today reported that Fiat Chrysler CEO, Sergio Marchionne, commented that they can’t confirm there won’t be any moves out of the country without more clarity from the President-elect on the new policies.
