    While a slew of American car manufacturing plants are being shut down, there’s one that’s had its lights off since 2012 that's coming back to life. According to a report from The Detroit News, Chrysler’s old Mack Avenue Engine II facility in Detroit is being retooled into an assembly plant for a new three-row Jeep SUV on the way adding up to 400 jobs to the city. The revitalized plant will be the first new auto assembly line to open in Detroit in 27 years.

    But the new seven- or eight-seater Jeep SUV won’t be the new Grand Wagoneer. According to the anonymous sources cited by The Detroit News, the Jeep that’s going to be built at the refreshed Mack Avenue plant is a three-row 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee, something we first heard about back in June.
