200 plant goes to one shift

by David Zatz on

As predicted by Allpar some time ago, FCA is laying off around 1,300 workers at its Sterling Heights plant, cutting from two shifts to one.

Reuters reported the move, which comes as FCA US lets Chrysler 200 sales find their natural level, without help from rental fleets or heavy dealer incentives. The plant had already been entirely shut down for nine weeks.


The plant will likely regain a high level of activity after FCA shuffles its facilities, moving the Wrangler into the Cherokee plant, bouncing the Cherokee to Sterling Heights or Belvidere, and possibly moving Ram trucks from Warren.

The current Chrysler 200, though, appears to have a relatively short life ahead; the company’s CEO has already said that the 200 and Dodge Dart will be replaced by sedans made, and likely engineered, by another company.
