If you love Fiat Chrysler, then you might not love this news: Fiat Chrysler will be ending its car production in the U.S. So, what exactly does this mean for the Fiat brand?
Well, the biggest change is that Fiat Chrysler’s U.S. plants will be focusing instead on the production of Rams and Jeeps. The Chrysler 200 and the Dodge Dart will get less focus and Jeep SUVS will get more.
Don’t worry, though, it doesn’t mean you can’t have your favorite Fiat Chrysler automobiles! Production will still take place at plants in Mexico, Canada, and other countries. So, why the change? Well, America loves SUVs and trucks, and the popularity of Jeep and Ram vehicles has been ever-increasing. The choice to use Fiat Chrysler plants for Jeep and Ram production was made in order to increase the output and popularity of Jeep SUVs and Ram pickup trucks.
Basically, American production of Jeeps and Rams can offer the company more of a competitive edge than the production of Chrysler and Dodge vehicles because of the growing popularity of SUVS and trucks.
Keep in mind that if you love Chryslers, you can still get them! They just won’t be “made” in the U.S.
