USA: All-New 2001 Chrysler Voyager and 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivans Roll Off the Assembly Line
The first all-new, customer-level 2001 Chrysler Voyager and 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans rolled off the final assembly line today at DaimlerChrysler Corporation's St. Louis South Assembly Plant -- U.S. home of the minivan. DaimlerChrysler Corporation (DCC) has invested over $280 million in new tooling and equipment in the St. Louis South facility in order to assemble the completely re-designed 2001 short and long-wheel base minivans. The company was able to completely replace tooling necessary to produce the new model and reach top, customer-level quality in only seven weeks -- a benchmark for the facility. After a short holiday during changeover, employees have been back at the plant for the last few weeks building pre-production prototype vehicles to test the new equipment, learn new processes and verify top quality before production for customers began today.
