Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’s $1 billion plan to make in the U.S. three new Jeeps and a Ram pickup now produced in Mexico won plaudits from President-elect Donald Trump as he pressures the auto industry to hire and manufacture here.

The automaker will add 2,000 jobs at factories in Michigan and Ohio, the Italian-American company said Sunday ahead of the Detroit auto show. It will retool the facilities by 2020 and add the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer sport utility vehicles and a pickup model to its lineup. After improvements to a plant in Warren, Michigan, the site will be able to assemble Ram HD trucks now produced in Saltillo, Mexico.

“It’s finally happening,” Trump tweeted, noting the announcement comes on the heels of Ford Motor Co.’s decision last week to cancel a $1.6 billion factory in Mexico and invest $700 million into a Michigan plant. “Thank you Ford & Fiat C!”

Fiat Chrysler circulated the plan before any potential criticism of the company by Trump, who last week threatened GM with tariffs for importing a version of its Chevrolet Cruze.
