Elections have consequences – Fiat Chrysler announces a massive investment in two new auto manufacturing plants in Michigan and Ohio.  More Winning, with a twist of Irony:

chrysler-warrentrump-tower-1

DETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler says it’s investing $1 billion in its U.S. factories to create 2,000 new jobs and add three new Jeep vehicles including a pickup truck.

The company says it will put modernize a factory in the Detroit suburb of Warren, Michigan, to make the new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer large SUVs.   A plant in Toledo, Ohio, also will get new equipment to make a new Jeep pickup.

The announcement is a continuation of efforts to increase production of SUVs and trucks as the company gets out of the small and midsize car businesses. (link)

The Fiat Chrysler announcement comes on the heels of Ford’s recent announcement that it has cancelled plans to build a $1.7 billion plant in Mexico and will instead expand operations in Wayne Michigan.

trump tower campaign beginThe downstream impacts from both decisions mean the subsidiary suppliers for both auto giants will also have significant future growth in both states, expanding operations in the U.S.  Major Winning.

Obviously the auto workers and, more importantly, the communities which benefit from the expansive revitalization of the U.S. auto industry will consider their decision to support Donald Trump well placed.

Yes, Trump actually delivers.  More winning.

The Irony is the Fiat purchase of Chrysler was part of the restructuring to save GM from bankruptcy and collapse.  Fiat bought out the UAW trust in the Chrysler purchase – the free market at work.  Now, amid a new economic outlook, Fiat-Chrysler is returning to investing a billion dollars toward Michigan and Ohio, the primary communities originally devastated by the collapse of GM.

Meanwhile, as directed by the Obama administration, the U.S. taxpayers bailed out GM (Chevy, Buick, GMC and Cadillac) and that construct facilitated a move to increase manufacturing in China via Buick etc.

DETROIT — Most Buick vehicles sold in the United States after 2016 could be imported from China and Europe, according to two sources familiar with parent General Motors Co.’s plans. (link)

Let that sink in…

      What’s sad is how the idiots insist that they were planning to move anyway, even before Trump won, in a pathetic attempt to salvage what’s left of Obama’s legacy.

    Warren, MI is in Macomb County, the heart of Reagan and Trump Democrats. Trump visited Macomb County three times during the general election, twice in the last 10 days. The mahgin by which Trump won Macomb County enabled him to win Michigan.

    The only independent U.S. heavy truck maker Navistar International is in a huge amount of financial trouble thanks to management’s idiotic response to emission mandates. Carl Icahn is a major investor in Navistar and saw trouble long before the inept board of directors did. Now they have entered a joint venture with VW. I hope the company can survive independently.

    GM and MSM caught in another lie regarding the manufacturer of the Chevy Cruze in Mexico. As you may have recently heard, Trump accused GM of moving them into the US tax free and selling them. GM denied and the MSM jumped on the story mocking Trump once again. According to Red State, a private citizen did some fact checking and found, according to the VIN #, that the cars were indeed being sold in dealerships in the South. Once again, fake news against PEOTUS.

    Chrysler now producrs many of its vehicles in Canada, the problem being they pay a 34% income tax rate there along with mandatory carbon credits.

    As Donald keeps telling us, none of any of this happens by accident.

    This is old news! The original announcement was made a year ago!

    Quote Fiat: “The announcement, in what the company said was the second phase of a plan it first made public a year ago, came days after Ford Motor Company decided to scrap a plan to build a facility in Mexico, instead opting to invest in a plant in Michigan.”

      Intellectual dishonesty!
      You can read and think right?
      ” The move “is a continuation of the efforts already underway to increase production capacity in the U.S.on trucks and SUVs to match demand,” the company said, adding that it would help solidify the U.S. as “a global manufacturing hub” for its flagship brands.

      However, Fiat indicated it would still continue to produce at least one line, its Ram heavy duty truck, in Mexico.

      “The added benefit of the investment in Warren is that it will enable the plant to produce the Ram heavy duty truck, which is currently produced in Mexico,” FCA said.”

      Yeah and its coincidence that they build upon it and make a big fuss about it ?
      It has nothing to do with Trump they say LOL. B.S.!! But hey who cares as long as it benefits the people, right?

      That Warren plant was closing for good, shut down, vacated. All production was moving down Mound Rd to the Sterling Heights plant that used to make the 200. Now, the Warren plant is being saved and the RAM HD is coming back from Mexico! Get your facts straight. I live up here, and am a frequent visitor as a contractor to all of these plants. This was a shock to all of us, a good shock! WINNING!

    So does this mean that after the U.S. taxpayers saved GM, they gave the jobs to China?

      Yep. Total cost to the taxpayers was > $10 billion after all GM loan paybacks and stock sales by the government. Of course, with the USSC decision that the federal government can require us to buy products or tax/fine us, next time they’ll just mandate that we have to buy GM cars every so often. Have to keep GM going, since it’s now owned by its union, or how will the union keep sending money to Democrats?

          I agree about the Cruse. Really uncomfortable to drive. I bought a 2014 Chevy Sonic made in Michigan, Lake Orion, USA (although the engine was made in Hungary). Young guy I know worked in that plant was proud of the car. Sonics now Mexico

          After I bought the Sonic, I rode in friend’s Ford Fiesta. made in Mexico. It was so similar to the Sonic, I got paranoid that maybe Ford and Chevy were buying car kits from China.

          Thought I might get a Ford Focus next, but they shifted to Mexico. No Focus in my future.

          The big unspoken problem with US auto companies has been discussed in detail on local talk radio here in Detroit. For years, management got to their golden parachutes by not making waves with the unions. Union knew this and the older generation of auto workers and executives both collected at levels that could not be maintained if the economy contracted – as it did. To keep the parachutes golden required outsourcing. Next they shifted to leasing since around here, who has the income to buy?

          we have to manufacture here to resuscitate the customer base. Otherwise, we better figure out how to grow bananas and become a banana republic
