Chrysler Continues to Invest in Efficiency

In this day and age, car parts are changing. At our showroom serving greater Tiffin, OH we're seeing advancements in technologies and new paths in engineering that are making strides to increase the efficiency of their models. This is a good thing.

Actually, it's a very good thing. Continuing their venture into the fuel-economy revolution, our preferred American automaker is investing $19.6 million in its Toledo Machining Plant. Located in the Buckeye State, this particular Chrysler facility assembles the torque converters for a variety of the company's models with eight- and nine-speed transmissions.

It's these torque converters that will help increase fuel-economy. That is, when paired with the automaker's new and more efficient nine-speed front-wheel drive transmission which will appear in the next-generation Chrysler 200.

As Scott Garberding, Senior Vice President, Manufacturing, Chrysler Group LLC puts it, "The new nine-speed transmission is a critical part of our strategy to meet fuel economy requirements over the next several years and Toledo Machining will play an integral role in bringing this transmission to the market".1

It's worth noting, that the aforementioned financing by Chrysler is in addition to their $72 million contribution made in August of 2011. That brings the grand total for the Toledo facility over $5.2 billion.

At Coppus Motors we're delighted by the American automaker's continuing commitment to preserving Mother Nature, not to mention helping drivers battle the prices at the pumps. To stay updated on their latest progress, we invite you to follow our Chrysler blog today!
