Chrysler Group LLC celebrated the extension of production, the addition of a second shift and an $850 million investment at an event yesterday at its Sterling Heights (Mich.) Assembly Plant. The celebration also marked the start of production of the all-new 2011 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger.

“Today is a historic day for this facility. Not more than 18 months ago, it was slated to close at the end of this year,” said Sergio Marchionne, Chrysler Group LLC CEO. “Now, this plant will not only remain open beyond 2012 and retain jobs, but with the help of the State of Michigan and the City of Sterling Heights, we will make a significant investment in this facility to make it competitive with the best in the industry.

“And with the commitment, dedication and support of our UAW partners and employees, we will continue our product onslaught with the launch of the 2011 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger, vehicles that we are confident will receive the proper recognition in the marketplace.”

So far the new Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Vehicles have received rave reviews from the likes of Four WheelerOff-Road Adventures, Road and Track, Car and Driver, and more. Chrysler Group LLC has listened to its critics and they like what they see! Keep the new vehicles coming!
