Holy Toledo: DaimlerChrysler Commits to Dodge Nitro

DaimlerChrysler is investing $600 million in its Toledo North Assembly Plant, which will host its first non-Jeep assembly — the Liberty-based Dodge Nitro SUV. The plant will be expanded by 160,000 square feet and get a team of 150 new robots, all in the name of increasing the plant's flexibility to multiple products can be produced at the same time. Additional improvements will be made to the Toledo South plant, where a larger Jeep Wrangler will be built.
