Default Chrysler set to make $266M-investment into 8-speed transmission production

Filed under: Plants/Manufacturing, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram



Chrysler will shortly make a significant $266-million investment into its Kokomo, IN transmission factory in a bid to expand production of its eight-speed automatic transmissions.

The gearboxes, which are built under license from Germany's ZF Friedrichshafen, have been well received by customers and critics, and according to an SEC filing obtained by Automotive News, the transmissions will eventually find their way to all of Chrysler's rear-drive offerings (Viper and heavy-duty Ram models, aside).

According to AN, a Chrysler spokesman says the investment has not been confirmed, but once it is, it'll mark the company's latest in a growing line of investments at the facility. Chrysler has poured $1.5 billion into Kokomo since 2009.Chrysler set to make $266M-investment into 8-speed transmission production originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 10 Dec 2014 17:21:00 EST.
