Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will redesign a manufacturing plant in the Detroit region to fabricate SUVs, the Detroit News revealed. The FCA industrial facility has been out of activity since 2012.
The US auto advertise has moved toward SUVs over traveler vehicles in the previous couple of years, and FCA has been on the ball on resigning its cars. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will re-open an industrial facility that it took disconnected in 2012, the Detroit News revealed Thursday.
The plant, which in the past made motors, will leave mothballs to benefit the ravenous US advertise for SUVs.
“The Auburn Hills-based automaker intends to restore Mack Avenue Engine II, which has been lingered since 2012, as a get together plant fabricating another three-push Jeep Grand Cherokee for model year 2021,” the News detailed, refering to anonymous sources.
“The move could include something like 100 and up to 400 employments in the city,” the paper included. FCA declined to remark on the report.
Under previous CEO Sergio Marchionne, who passed away out of the blue not long ago, FCA moved forcefully far from traveler vehicles and redid its US fabricating impression to focus on hot-moving SUVs, hybrids, and pickup trucks.
FCA shares shut down 3% on Thursday to $16.
