CHICAGO (AP) — Ford Motor Co. says building the next generation of the Ford Explorer SUV will bring 1,200 new jobs to its Chicago assembly plant and a nearby stamping plant.

The new work means a second shift at the assembly plant on the city’s far South Side.

Gov. Pat Quinn and Ford officials are at the plant for Tuesday’s announcement.

Ford says it’s investing $400 million in its Chicago manufacturing facilities to make the more fuel efficient Explorer.
