Chrysler Sold 54,651 200 Sedans

Warren Truck Assembly

Poor sales led to the 200’s demise as consumers continue to flock to crossovers and trucks. Chrysler sold 54,651 200 sedans through November of this year, a staggering 65-percent drop compared to the same period in 2017.

Moving forward, Sterling Heights will be retooled to build the next-generation Ram 1500 pickup truck. The Detroit News reports that most of the plant’s 1,700 remaining employees will be placed on a temporary layoff during the retooling, which is expected to last through most of 2018. Some workers will remain to help with the plant’s renovation.

FCA is reportedly investing $1.48 billion into the plant and says it’ll add new employees to help build the new Ram 1500. Speculation suggests the facility will employ at least 4,600 workers once it reopens.
It’s still unclear when production of the next-gen Ram 1500 will begin, though the automaker has previously suggested it would go on sale by early 2019. The Ram 1500 is currently produced at the automaker’s Warren Truck Assembly, which will reportedly be retooled to build the next-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee and upcoming Grand Wagoneer.
