2018 Jeep Wrangler Needs To Watch Out For RAM 1500
At the moment everything is going well for FCA as they are enjoying some strong sales for the Jeep and these have been covering the commercial performance from Dodge, Fiat and Chrysler, which has been limp.
The company has plans for investing around $1.05 billion in the refurbishment of the Toledo plant and this is for the production of the next generation of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler and so that the Jeep Cherokee can be relocated to Belvidere.
Of course there is the worry that FCA could be gambling far too much on the fact that gas prices will remain low in the future. The Jeep Wrangler is going to see some improvements to fuel economy; however fuel economy hasn’t been the strong point of 4×4 vehicles.
It is looking as though the risk is big but the latest news to come from FCA is even more disturbing. They are going to put $1.48 billion into revamping the Sterling Heights plant so they can build the next generation RAM 1500 as this is moving from the unibody build to a body on frame.
Just as with the Cherokee, the Chrysler 200 is going to be kicked out thanks to the retool at the Detroit plant. The sedan isn’t going to be moved anywhere else as we are saying goodbye to it, the same applies to the Dodge Dart in Illinois.
