Toluca started Fiat 500s, 2011 Journeys

A reliable source wrote that the Toluca, Mexico plant, which made Neons and PT Cruisers, has started production of U.S.-specification Fiat 500s and 2011 Dodge Journeys.

While most manufacturers started building their 2011 models starting in July, August, or September, Chrysler’s were delayed due the need to “recontent” and retune existing designs. Daimler had demanded a far different vehicle feel than Chrysler had used before the takeover, and Sergio Marchionne has specified a more “fun” and “connected” feel, as well as higher quality interiors. This, coupled with exterior styling changes and delayed availability of the Pentastar V6 led to substantial delays in manufacturing. However, critics have almost universally acclaimed each of the 2011 models.

2011 Dodge Journey availability may be constrained for some time as many 2010s have yet to be delivered and sold, according to the source.
