Plant History: Transmission plant completed and production began in 1956. FCA US announced in May 2010 that it would invest $43 million to adapt the plant for production of the World Engine and improve processes for the 62TE transmission program. Then in June 2010, the Company announced that it would invest $300 million to produce a new, fuel-efficient eight-speed automatic transmission for future vehicles. An investment of an additional $85 million was announced in December 2010. In February 2013, the Company announced an investment of $212 million at the Kokomo Transmission, Kokomo Casting and Indiana Transmission I Plants for additional tooling and equipment to produce the eight- and nine-speed transmissions, which would add up to 400 new jobs. Production of the eight-speed transmission began in September 2012. FCA US confirmed in December 2014 that it will invest an additional $266 million to increase capacity of the fuel-efficient TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission.
Production of the 42RLE ended in early 2012.
Since 1974, KTP has built more than 67 million transmissions. The 17-million four-speed milestone was achieved over a 25-year period from 1988 to December 2013. The plant began building the six-speed in 2006 and reached the three million mark in April 2014.
