    Detroit Assembly Complex Jefferson

    Guess nobody got the memo of the new name. :)

    I understand Detroit wanting it's name front and center.

    I also think the names should include Mack and Jefferson.

    Detroit Mack Assembly Plant
    Detroit Jefferson North Plant

    Each should have unique to them manufacturer stickers.

    I understand plant pride.

    I am a big fan of pride of ownership.

    The City of Detroit had no input in the renaming of the plants. But if you were wondering, the other plant is Detroit Assembly Complex Mack.

    No, because Warren Truck is in Warren. It's an entirely different plant and nowhere nearby.

    Well, “nowhere nearby” is a bit of an overstatement, it's a moderate drive up Van Dyke to get there from Detroit... but as Marlon says, it's in Warren. Mack Avenue and Jefferson Avenue plants are in Detroit proper. Sterling Heights and Warren are both reachable from Van Dyke (road, drive, whatever) but both are north of Detroit's city limits. Generally plants outside of Detroit are named after their city (or, in St. Louis' case, a city near their city—not that it matters now for St. Louis!).

    It is in fact an overstatement. I'm just trying to make a point. :) Warren Truck is about 25 minutes away from Jefferson and Mack, which are around the corner from each other. After the plan has reached full execution, they will be on adjacent properties, hence the "complex" naming.

    Is anything going to change with the Pacifica with Windsor being down? Are they still doing that AWD availability on the 2020 model or are we just gonna jump into 2021. I'm just asking because a certain family is looking at a car shuffle and the 2021 model is on the top of the list.

    I've been to the Warren plant. I know where it's located, but I don't work for FCA, and was wondering if maybe they were rebranding all their assembly plants in the metro Detroit area that way.

    It's FCA, I would expect it to be a model-year late anyway ;)

    Seriously, good question.

    Certainly better than "Detroit 1" and "Detroit 2" that was being mentioned...

    Given the discounts I'm seeing advertised by local dealers I'm going to assume the answer to that is no. Now is a great time to be a buyer, not so great as a seller. A family member just took over 2 months to sell their used vehicle because the market is so soft.
