“Detroit” gave way to “America” in Chrysler’s widely awaited Super Bowl commercial this year, as the brand finally pivoted from its “Imported From Detroit” tag line after using it for three years.

“America’s Import” was the new signature line at the end of the Chrysler-brand anthem ad during the game’s third quarter, starring Bob Dylan from start to finish as narrator, protagonist and inspiration in a commercial that at least nominally was about the new 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan.

Ford Motor says it's investing $80 million and adding 350 jobs at its Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, to boost production of F-series Super Duty models about 15%, or 55,000 trucks a year.

Super Duty is Ford's name for F-250 and F-350 truck models, sometimes known as three-quarter-ton and one-ton models, and the even heavier-duty F-450 and F-550. Super Duty trucks almost always are sold as work trucks, albeit often well-appointed -- thus high-profit -- models.

Ford says demand for Super Duties is rising as the economy recovers.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Ford Motor Co. said Thursday it plans to invest $80 million in its Kentucky truck plant to churn out more F-Series Super Duty trucks. The ramped-up production will add 350 jobs, the automaker said.

The investment will boost production capacity by 15 percent, or about 55,000 units, as the company retools and upgrades the plant, Ford said. Improvements are planned in the body and paint shops, it said.

“This is a sizable leap forward in capacity,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of the Americas.
