Interesting! It's good to see that they will be moving the production of Dodge trucks out of Mexico and back to the USA. Lets hope that it doesn't mean they'll go up in price!

I wonder if they will look more like a dodge. Kind of like the Mazda "B" series trucks and the Ford Ranger.

Interesting to see things going the opposite direction for a refreshing change.

I wonder what the reasoning was - quality problems at the Mexican facilities, perhaps?
