Ram Plans to Rev Up Detorit

Big news for Detroit from the Automotive Industry. The FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) announced plans to move it’s heavy-duty Ram truck production out of Mexico and into Detroit. However, it’s unclear how far this boost will spread.

Detroit is currently on the rise. The city that once bore the name of Automotive Empire has since fallen into depression and poverty. Recently, with many restoration projects, as well as investors, looking for cheap buildings Detroit has slowly been moving up. The FCA is aiding in the uphill battle by bringing production of the heavy-duty Ram truck to Detroit. Production for these vehicles was recently located in Mexico, which the CEO of the FCA later called “a mistake”. Technically, the production won’t go to Detroit itself, but metro Detroit to the Warren plant. Thus moving the light-duty Ram truck production they were doing to an actual plant in Detroit. The good news is that bringing production of the heavy-duty truck to Detroit is going to take about 2,500 jobs. This is all expected to happen in 2020.

The FCA says that the heavy-duty truck will continue to be produced in Mexico until further notice. With Detroit in the middle of a resurgence, theres no telling what impact this could have on the community.
