Chrysler parts plants (incomplete list?)

Engines: Dundee, Michigan for four-cylinders (including Fiat); Mack Avenue, Detroit, Saltillo, Mexico, and Trenton, Michigan for V6 engines; Saltillo, Mexico for V8 engines. Kokomo and nearby towns in Indiana for automatic transmissions. Marysville, Michigan for axles (ZF plant). Toledo (actually Perrysburg) Ohio for torque converters and steering columns. Etobicoke, Ontario for castings and pistons. Mt. Elliott Tool & Die near Detroit for tooling and dies.

Where will Chrysler make it?

The next generation Journey (or its replacement) is likely to move to Sterling Heights, which has a new body shop that can almost certainly handle it, even as Fiat 500 moves back to Europe when the next generation is developed (with North American sales in mind). The next generation Compass replacement and a Chrysler compact are expected to show up in Toluca.

2013 Jeep Wagoneer

Rumors that the next generation minivans will be modified CUSWs (e.g. a wider, longer Cherokee) with Durango-based suspensions would suggest that Windsor could also make Journeys, which may be one reason why the next generation Journey has been delayed. It’s possible they will make Journey a slightly smaller minivan with standard doors, and build it alongside the minivans, though the latter is unlikely. (Making Journey share more with the minivan seems sensible, though.) The Windsor plant will also be making a full size Chrysler crossover, according to current long term plans.

D-RWD is being jointly developed by Dodge and Alfa Romeo, reportedly based on CUSW with changes to optimize for RWD. It has been dubbed “Giorgio” to make it seem like an Alfa Romeo-only project that’s downward-shared with Dodge, so snooty buyers aren’t turned off by the plebian origins.

Rumor currently has L (large cars) and WK3 (Grand Cherokee, etc) converging.

One Mexican source said that Toluca may be used to make short-run or highly varied models due to its quality and innovative workforce.

Wagoneer will almost certainly be made at Jefferson Avenue, but what will happen to Durango?

A Wrangler pickup is now expected but it will be a fairly low production vehicle.

By platform (speculation; based mainly on Daniel Bennett’s and Dan Minick’s thoughts, and excluding most Rams):
