Sounds like FCA is pretty good at plant utilization, unlike GM.
Their Jeep line is #1 in SUV sales, and other than the Fiat 500 and Chrysler 300 they are basically out of the passenger car business in the US, the same direction that Ford and now GM are headed. Sadly, that seems how to keep plants operating at capacity these days, at least for now....

Any truth to the Tesla interest in the vacant factories coming?, that would be good for obvious reasons, not that i think the electric vehicle is going to displace the majority of highway travelling types of people like myself

I think the reality is people can no longer expect to leave high school and go earn a good living at the local factory like perhaps their father or mother did. Be it GM or any other factory type of work. There will be more of this sort of thing. I suspect this is only the beginning of it.

All anyone can do now is to pressure GM to allocate the next generation of SUV's and crossovers currently foreign produced to Detroit and Lordstown. Everyone of course is seeing GM outsourcing the products, and yet not a single product is moving to a foreign plant. GM is just killing the products these plants produced. What do you expect GM to do with these plants with no product? They aren't going to retool them for the current gen of Acadia, Equinox, Terrain, etc. That's just inefficient use of funds since they don't need the extra capacity to meet demand. The decision to have Blazer produced in Mexico was years ago before the total collapse of sedan sales.

What you can do is pressure GM to produce the next gen Blazer, Terrain, Trax, etc in these idled plants or even the EV's and autonomous vehicles GM is claiming the move is for.
