HOW CARS ARE MADE

Below is a basic overview of the production process in all of our Stellantis Assembly Plants from raw materials to a finished driving vehicle under a single roof.

Each of our vehicle assembly plants employs between 3500 and 7000 people

Big plants like our Sterling Heights Assembly Plant operate around the clock and can produce more than 1,400 new Ram Trucks every day

(That’s a new truck built almost every minute)

Raw Materials

1 RAW MATERIALS

Rolls of raw materials like steel, aluminum and plastics are delivered in bulk to the assembly plant.

Stamping

2 STAMPING

Sheets of steel and aluminum are put into huge stamping machines that press down on them to shape them into the car’s body panels.

Body Shop

3 BODY SHOP

Robots in the body shop weld and bolt the stamped panels together to make structural components and the car begins to take shape

Paint Shop

4 PAINT SHOP

After the body has been washed, the paint shop robots spray every surface of the metal body in the car’s selected paint color

Powertrain

5 POWERTRAIN

This is where the engine, transmission and other drive components are assembled together

Interior

6 INTERIOR

The interior components get loaded into the body on robotic arms and operators on the assembly line bold them into place

General Assembly

7 GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Teams of assembly line workers add components one by one to finish the construction of the car both inside and out. Seats, doors, wheels, electrical wiring and decorative trim all get added by hand.

Quality Control

8 QUALITY CONTROL

Trained workers check adjustments on different components, inspect moving parts, make sure the features are working properly and that everything is assembled to meet our standards of World Class Manufacturing

Final Inspection

The assembled car passes through specially lighted tunnel to allow technicians to inspect the car for any possible flaws or defects ensuring the highest quality.

WE DON’T  BUILD ’EM LIKE WE USED TO.

Just for some historical context. Here is a cool video of a Dodge Brothers assembly plant from way back in 1917. Our facilities have come a LONG way in improving worker safety, cleanliness, production numbers and the build quality of our products.
