Total investments were around US$2.7 billion, far over the initial $2 billion announcement. FCA now employs over 11,000 Canadians, even as other automakers flee to Mexico.

The Windsor plant has, according to FCA and insiders alike, been thoroughly renovated for the first time in many years, and is ready to produce not just the Chrysler Pacifica and current Dodge Caravan at once, but also at least one future crossover.
