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

In addition, the firm also revealed that it would pay 60,000 of its US-based employees bonuses of $2,000 each, totalling $120mn in expenses.

About 80% of the Rams now built in Mexico are shipped to the USA, said Kristin Dziczek, director of the industry, labor and economics group at Ann Arbor's Center for Automotive Research.

During a shift change at the FCA Warren Truck Assembly Plant on Mound Road in Warren, workers leave the plant in October 2015.

The investment means that the company will relocate the production of the truck from its current production location in Saltillo, Mexico, in 2020, the company states in a press release.

FCA also announced $2,000 bonuses that will be paid in the second quarter of this year to 60,000 hourly and salaried employees in the USA, excluding senior leadership. Apparently, the bonus amount will be rolled out in the second quarter of this year in surplus of performance-related & profit-sharing bonuses.

Since its launch at the Windsor Assembly Plant, the Pacifica - North American Utility Vehicle of the Year at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show - has garnered multiple industry and customer satisfaction awards. "That's wonderful", Farquhar said, noting that the investment and bonuses tell her the company is doing well.

$350 million in the Belvidere Assembly Plant in IL to produce the Jeep Cherokee, which moved from Toledo, OH, in 2017. The Mexican plant will be "repurposed to produce future commercial vehicles" for sale worldwide markets.

FCA also is a reminder how a United States president is keeping tabs on where automakers are making investments. FCA didn't immediately announce what Warren Truck would do between production of the Ram 1500 leaving and Ram heavy duty arriving, although plants often shut down for a time to retool for new production projects.

"I'm just elated at this news", Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel said. More than 300 new jobs were added to support production.

During the 2016 presidential campaign then-candidate Donald Trump frequently attacked Ford Motor Co. and other automakers for importing vehicles from Mexico, threatening to enact a "big border tax" once elected.

Trump is also seeking to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico, and has encouraged USA businesses to bring jobs back home from across the southern border. More than 2.75 million Dodge Dakotas were built at the factory.
