Fiat Chrysler will move Ram production to MI from Mexico


The company also plans to make a special bonus payment of $2,000 to approximately 60,000 FCA hourly and salaried employees in the US, excluding senior leadership.

As a result, the firm's Mexico plant, where the production of such vehicles now occurs, will be repurposed, instead being used to develop and produce future Fiat Chrysler commercial vehicles for global sale.

The investment at the assembly plant follows plans detailed in January 2017 to expand the factory to build all-new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUVs.
