Warren Truck Assembly is a Stellantis automobile factory in Warren, Michigan. The factory opened in 1938 and was known as "Dodge City" until the mid-2000's.[1] The nearby Warren Stamping opened in 1949 and just south of Eight Mile Road in Detroit, the Mound Road Engine plant opened in 1953. There also was once the nearby Sherwood Assembly that closed in the late 1970s when Chrysler halted production of the Dodge Medium and Heavy Duty trucks and exited the market. It was located on the southwest corner of 9 Mile Road and Sherwood, adjacent to the Warren Assembly site on the east.

The facility was the site of Dodge Dakota production from 1987 through 2011, with over 2.75 million examples produced.[1]

The Warren Truck plant became the sole source of Ram 1500 Rebel production in 2015.[2]

The factory received a US$1 billion investment to upgrade and convert the facility to production of a revived Jeep Wagoneer, which has been completed in 2020. The upgrades provide capacity to produce heavy-duty models of the Ram pickup.[1]

Warren will not be building Heavy Duty trucks as of now.[when?] Those are produced in Mexico.
