New vehicles from Detroit's automakers are planned in contracts that ended UAW strikes
DETROIT, MI (AP)— Stellantis plans to build a new midsize pickup truck, along with battery-run versions of six Jeep, Ram, and Dodge vehicles.
Ford envisions at least three new electric vehicles that will preserve jobs at several factories.
General Motors plans to build at least six new electric vehicles, including a full-size SUV.
Those and other plans by Detroit’s automakers have emerged in details of the tentative contract agreements that ended the six-week strikes by the United Auto Workers union. Under the new agreements, the three companies will significantly boost pay and benefits and improve job security. But the agreements also provide a blueprint for which vehicles they intend to build in the coming years and where they will do so.
