Under the motto “Made in Venezuela”, the Forza model has a FIRE (Fully Integrated Robotized Engine) engine with four 1.4-liter SOHC cylinders, five-speed manual transmission, power steering and air conditioning, just to mention some of its features.
“This has been one of the most challenging projects of recent times in our plant. It has involved an investment of USD 44.9 million in order to execute the production lines upgrading with advanced technological systems, work stations automation and the acquisition of new equipment, devices and state-of-the-art machinery. As a result, we have succeeded in modernizing our assembly process, ensuring ideal conditions regarding ergonomics, maintenance, environment, productivity and, of course, a better working environment for plant workers, who today proudly face the challenge of manufacturing the Dodge Forza,” said Elías Levy, president of Chrysler Venezuela.
We have also experienced an important process of technology and expertise transfer by introducing a training program of which about 75 factory workers participated in, including engineers, supervisors, tem leaders and workers, who were trained in Brazil, Argentina and other countries, added Levy, according to a report published by ACN agency.
