Jeep Confirms Wagoneer and Wrangler Pickup In the Works

Jan 09, 2017




Jeep has announced a total $1-billion investment in plants in Michigan and Ohio, helping add 2,000 new American jobs.

The announcement comes at a time when President-elect Donald Trump is criticizing automakers for manufacturing U.S.-sold vehicles in Mexico and other countries, threatening them with a big border tax. The automaker reaffirms its commitment to U.S. manufacturing with a total investment of more than $9.6-billion in its U.S. manufacturing facilities while adding 25,000 new jobs to date since 2009.

The bigger news is Jeep confirming the addition of new models to its lineup including a Jeep pickup truck, Jeep Wagoneer, and Grand Wagoneer. The Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models will be produced at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Michigan, while the all-new pickup truck will be built at the Toledo Assembly Plant in Ohio. The retooling and modernizing of both plants are planned to be completed by 2020.

“The conversion of our industrial footprint completes this stage of our transformation as we respond to the shift in consumer tastes to trucks and SUVs, and as we continue to reinforce the U.S. as a global manufacturing hub for those vehicles at the heart of the SUV and truck market,” said Sergio Marchionne, CEO of FCA N.V. “These moves, which have been under discussion with Dennis Williams and the rest of the UAW leadership for some time, expand our capacity in these key segments, enabling us to meet growing demand here in the U.S., but more importantly to increase exports of our mid-size and larger vehicles to international markets
