I've seen the main Jeep assembly plant video posted, but not the engine facility. I believe the Gladiator engines are made in Mexico (mine was), so who knows how different it is from the Trenton plant in this video. Pretty neat though!

I thought the ending was good car pooling and "Chrysler parking only" might not be as popular driving a Toyota or Honda years ago or now possible being non union built.
That video was a different one than I seen before.

Interesting video, I've seen it before. Yes the JT engines are built in Mexico according to the window sticker. My uncle worked at the Trenton engine plant, supervisor on afternoon shift. Retired many years ago before the Pentastar V6 production. He passed away 2 weeks ago at age 95. He was in the Army Air Corps in WWII and then worked 41 years with Chrysler until retirement.
