TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Fiat Chrysler says employees returning to its Ohio assembly complex to work on the new Jeep Wrangler will be greeted with new off-road courses.

The Blade reports the company has built dirt and gravel circuits inside the Toledo complex that feature steep hills, uneven logs and pitched slopes.

Plant manager Chuck Padden says the course will give employees hands-on experience with the Wrangler’s capabilities.

The company says professional drivers will take employees on the more difficult course while workers can try a less challenging one on their own.

About 3,200 workers were temporarily laid off in April so the plant could prepare for the launch of the new Wrangler. Padden says workers will be returning over the next few months.
