Chrysler to open factory in Detroit, weeks after GM layoffs

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Fiat Chrysler is planning to open a manufacturing plant in Detroit. It would be the first new assembly plant in Detroit since Chrysler opened up its Jefferson North plant in 1992.

The Detroit News is reporting that the automaker wants to revive its Mack Avenue Engine II plant that has been idle since 2012 to build a new three-row Jeep Grand Cherokee for the model year 2021.

Fiat Chrysler declined to comment.

According to U.S. media, the plant would start producing its Jeep sports utility vehicles (SUVs) in 2020, and create up to 400 jobs. Trump made restoring auto production a top priority of his campaign - and also praised Germany's BMW for considering plans to build a new transmission plant in the United States. Last week, GM announced it would close several plants in North America and lay off as many as 15,000 workers, a move that drew criticism from affected communities, unions, and politicians including President Trump. Sales of the Ram line jumped 44 percent, but sales of Chrysler cars and minivans slumped 21 percent.

The factory will assemble a new three-row version of the Grand Cherokee SUV, said the person, who asked not to be identified ahead of an official announcement. "They're kind of running up against being against full capacity". At a rally last summer near a GM plant in OH, he told the crowd that jobs are "all coming back".

US -traded shares of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV fell 49 cents, or 3 percent, to close at $16.
