Chrysler matches Toyota in U.S. productivity

Thursday June 05, 2008

DETROIT - Chrysler LLC has become as productive as Toyota Motor Corp. in the two automakers' U.S. manufacturing operations, a much-watched study shows.

Chrysler and Toyota each used 30.37 hours of assembly, stamping, engine and transmission time to build a vehicle last year, according to the annual Harbour Report North America 2008, released this morning.


Chrysler lost $412 per vehicle, while GM lost $729 per vehicle. Ford's per vehicle loss was $1,467.

The most productive assembly plant in the United States was Chrysler's Toledo South plant, which makes the Jeep Wrangler.

Chrysler's Detroit Jefferson North plant, which makes the Jeep Commander and Jeep Grand Cherokee, ranked eighth. It was the only Michigan assembly plant ranked in the top 10.
