Mar. 2, 2016 - The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has begun production at FCA US LLC’s Windsor, Ont., assembly plant, says the automaker.

Constructed on an “all-new platform,” the vehicle is scheduled to hit dealer showrooms this spring.

The Windsor Assembly Plant, built in 1928, runs three shifts and, in 2013, celebrated 30 years of minivan leadership. More than 14 million minivans have been sold since the plant began production in 1983, with more than 6 million currently on the road today, says FCA.

The 4.4-million-sq.-ft. facility holds the silver designation in World Class Manufacturing (WCM), a methodology that focuses on eliminating waste, increasing productivity, and improving quality and safety. WCM engages the workforce to provide and implement suggestions on how to improve their jobs and their plants.
