Jeep is not now, nor was it ever moving production to China. So Romney is still not right.

    Chrysler refutes Romney

    The article suggests that Wrangler production may be moved elsewhere and will be substantially replaced by Cherokee production and, perhaps another model.
    Care to tell us where the parts are made? What about Marchionne's lies not having the Jeep built outside Toledo?

    Re: Ohio to lose Jeep after all

    I see a lot of governments here in Canada/Ontario and in various US States propping up pretty much all segments of the North American auto industry and it frosts my ass. My tax dollars and the tax dollars of tens of millions of other people are being spent to artificially support an auto industry that is bloated with over paid and over benefited employees and big money unions and to top it off, my tax dollars are used to make the new car I buy more expensive at the dealership than it would be if there was no tax money goosing the industry and the product price.

    Let the auto industry live or die on its own merits. Let the auto industry build cars that people want and can readily afford. And do this by eliminating all government automotive welfare. Enough already!!

    Article says "hopefully" they will get another line. Not an absolute though. Hence why the article is titled "Toledo nervously awaits the fate of their beloved Jeep." Chrysler could close that half down and layoff 4,000 workers if they wanted to. Hopefully they wont but they could.

Especially considering it will be made in Italy and shipped to the US ( a higher cost option)

    Are you a communist?

    Should Jeep lose spend a few billion they dont need to just to keep commies similar to you happy?

    The article states it is just in the planning stages. The next wrangler is not even being developed yet. The aluminum body is not even a sure thing.

    Oh yeah, I'm sure everything will be just fine. I'm sure companies all the time mention that they are moving part of their business putting jobs in jeopardy when they have NO intention to actually do what they said.

    You just had to spoil their bragging on Romney by revealing the facts. Ah shucks!

    If you would have read and understood the article

    Word that Chrysler is considering moving production of the Wrangler elsewhere so that the famously rugged vehicle can be constructed with an aluminum body to meet new government gas-mileage standards has triggered feelings of anger, betrayal and despair in this Midwestern industrial city
    The word considering is quite important

    Jeep has not made the decision to build the next wrangler out of aluminum yet, it is most likely doing the feasibility studies right now, creating a mock up out of aluminum right now. The testing for Jeep to make that decision will take months if not years, as it is a newer idea for Jeep.

    So if you would have read the article and understood it

    You would have realized that Jeep is considering making the next wrangler out of aluminum, but has not decided on that yet. If it does then the Wrangler production will move to another plant. Other Jeep products are made in Toledo, and most likely another product would move there to take up the volume that the wrangler would have had. The Toledo plant does make more then just the Wrangler
