Ram factory move explains C-200 drop

by David Zatz on

The Detroit News reported today that Sergio Marchionne confirmed a move that was rumored for months.

Ram will change its primary production site from the historic Warren location to Sterling Heights, not far down the road but a much more modern plant. Warren will be renovated and used for Ram and Jeep overflow.

This may explain the company’s plan to move the Chrysler 200’s production to a “partner” facility.

The company will, as Allpar predicted, make the Jeep Compass in Mexico, as well as Brazil and China. This move may lead to the Jeep Renegade being made in Mexico as well.

A new Ram pickup will arrive, as planned, in early 2018; the next Jeep Compass will appear in early 2017, later than expected. (A camouflaged Compass has been spotted around Detroit.)
