Senator urged Chrysler to invest in Toledo plant

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio) said Thursday he publicly urged Chrysler Group LLC to add a production line to its Toledo Assembly complex.

Chrysler's Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne told The Blade this month that he expects to make an announcement by summer of investment at Toledo Assembly.

Industry analysts expect Chrysler will add equipment and have the plant that makes Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro make other vehicles. Also, the factories which make the Jeep Wrangler could start making a Wrangler pickup, Chrysler has said.
