Fiat Chrysler announced it will hire 2,500 people to facilitate the move and said it will give a one-time $2,000 bonus to its 60,000 us workers.

Both actions were "made possible in part by the passage of USA tax reform legislation late previous year", according to the release. At that time, officials noted that the Warren investment would make it easier to move Ram production to MI in the future if necessary but said no such decision had been made.

But besides potential mergers, a stable pricing environment, solid volume growth and the recently announced USA corporate tax reform could underpin auto stocks such as FCA this year, J.P. Morgan said last week.

The company's investment will be targeted toward producing its Ram Heavy Duty trucks.

President Donald Trump has just posted on Twitter that "the voters in MI are very happy they voted for Trump/Pence".

The Italian-American automaker will pay each US hourly and salaried employee a $2,000 bonus in the second quarter of 2018. Tax cut money to employees is pouring into our economy with many more companies announcing. The truck now is assembled in a Mexican factory that will be "repurposed" for another global product, FCA said.

In an announcement January 11, the automaker said the investment will solidify the U.S.
