Fiat Chrysler plans to add more factory capacity over the next few years to support building two new Jeep models, including a return of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, CEO Mike Manley told CNBC.

Manley would not say how many jobs Fiat Chrysler might add or give a time frame for when those new assembly lines would be up and running.
