DETROIT -- Chrysler LLC today provided further details on its plans to close plants that will not be part of a new Fiat-Chrysler alliance.
It said it had been unable to provide details earlier while it was in talks with the UAW and while the judge in its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing was ruling on various motions.
According to Chrysler, here are the current plans for the affected plants:
Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, Sterling Heights, Mich. The plant, which builds the Chrysler Sebring sedan and convertible and Dodge Avenger, will close in December 2010.
Conner Avenue Assembly Plant, Detroit. The plant, which builds the low-volume Dodge Viper sports car, will close in December unless Chrysler sells the plant and Viper line to another company. So far, no acceptable offers have been submitted.
St. Louis North Assembly Plant, Fenton, Mo. Production of the Ram pickup with the RamBox option will move from this plant to the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Detroit in the third quarter of this year. St. Louis will then close.
Kenosha Engine, Kenosha, Wis. Production of V-6 engines will stop in December 2010 and the plant will close.
Detroit Axle, Detroit. The plant will close in December 2010 when a new plant in Marysville, Mich., opens.
Twinsburg Stamping, Twinsburg, Ohio. Production of stamped metal parts will be transferred to the Warren Stamping and Sterling Stamping plants in Detroit by March 2010. Twinsburg will close.
