FCA creating more jobs in Windsor, Ontario

FCA creating more jobs in Windsor, Ontario

In a great piece of Christmas news, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have announced they are expanding their Windsor manufacturing facility in Canada. They began boosting staff in the summer in order to assist with production of the new Chrysler Town and Country. According to FCA, a further 600 new jobs are being created to further boost that production.

We don’t know much about the new Chrysler Town and Country yet as it is due to be unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show. The show runs between January 11 and 24 so we don’t have long to wait to find out all about it. What we do know is that FCA have invested $2 billion in their minivan so it should be good!

The Windsor, Ontario facility currently has slightly over 4,500 workers who manufacture up to 1,400 vehicles a day. That number is set to exceed 5,000 with this news which is great for the local and national economy.

2016 Chrysler Town and Country
Despite the shift in buying habits from minivans to crossovers, the Chrysler Town and Country remains. That says a lot about the value and practicality it delivers. With flexible seating, lots of cargo room, a decent engine and plenty of features, it’s no surprise the T&C has endured.

With a friendly, modern shape, a nice front end, high roofline with large windows, both the inside and outside of the Chrysler Town and Country are nice to behold. The interior is spacious and full of technology as standard too.

Under the hood is a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 that delivers 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. That is set to work at the front wheels by an accomplished six speed automatic transmission.

The Chrysler Town and Country can comfortably seat seven passengers with room left over for luggage. It comes in six trim levels and offers a lot as standard. A base model offers 17 inch alloys, heated side mirrors, power sliding side doors, power tailgate, keyless entry, tri-zone climate control, Stow 'n Go second-row seats and a leather steering wheel.

You can the climb up the trim levels to specify leather interior, push button start, DVD or Blu-ray player, parking sensors, Chrysler UConnect and much more to make it your own.

With a great engine, lots of space, generous features and a solid reputation, the 2016 Chrysler Town and Country is a solid bet for large families. With some great deals going on right now for both new and certified used Chrysler Town and Country, it’s a great time to buy.
