Last month, the Saltillo Truck Assembly Plant in Saltillo, Coahuila Mexico celebrated a huge milestone. The plant had its 4,000,000 Ram Truck leave the assembly line. The plant started building Ram Trucks in 1995 and currently builds a number of Ram Truck models that include the Ram 1500 Classic for the United States and Canada, Mexico and export market fourth-generation Ram 1500 (DS) Regular and Crew Cabs, Ram 2500, Ram 3500, Ram 4500, Ram 5500, and Mexico market Ram 4000 Chassis Cab.
The 4,000,000th truck to roll of the production line was a Diamond Black Crystal Pearl-colored 2019 Ram 2500 Limited Crew Cab 4×4 equipped with the legendary 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel.
“The RAM vehicles assembled in Mexico are a reflection of the passion, delivery, and commitment with which each employee works,” said Carlos Rivera, Vice President of Manufacturing for FCA Mexico. “They are the ones who with their hard and continuous work have made it possible to reach this figure and that these are recognized worldwide,” he added.
To celebrate the milestone, supervisors, leaders, employees, and representatives of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) México Workers Union joined together at the end of the production line.
The Saltillo Truck Assembly Plant current has more than 5,400 employees to build the Ram 1500 Classic models and Heavy Duty models (2500, 3500, 4000, 4500 and 5500). The plant has the flexibility to build more than 170,000 different versions of the fourth-generation Ram pickups. Trucks built at the plant are exported to more than 30 countries around the globe.
