And for the 2018 model year, Ram is expected to introduce its next-generation 1500. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles [NYSE:FCAU] CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed recently that the new Ram 1500 will go on sale in January of 2018. This suggests a reveal will take place in the second half of next year. Production will stay in Michigan but will be moved to FCA’s Sterling Heights plant instead of the current model’s home in Warren.
At the Warren plant, FCA will build the next-generation Grand Cherokee and a new Grand Wagoneer. The new Grand Cherokee is currently expected to be launched in 2018, as a 2019 model. It should be followed by the Grand Wagoneer roughly one year later.
