    Default Chrysler boosting U.S. engine output; adds 1250 new jobs

    (Reuters) - Chrysler Group LLC will invest $238 million in two plants in Michigan to boost engine production to meet U.S. demand for smaller, more fuel-efficient engines, the U.S. automaker majority owned by Fiat SpA said on Thursday.

    Chrysler is spending $198 million to make by early 2014 its Pentastar V6 engine at the Mack I Engine Plant in Detroit, which now makes a larger engine for the Ram 1500 truck. The automaker is also working on several variants of the 3.6-liter V6 engine, including a smaller 3.2-liter version.

    The No. 3 U.S. automaker is also spending $40 million to install a flexible production line -- its first ever -- at its Trenton North plant in Trenton, Michigan, to build both the V-6 engine and the Tigershark four-cylinder engine.

    Always was a MoPar fanatic. It's good to see the investments being made along with the good paying jobs they will provide.
    Hopefully the new corporate owners will see that improvements in quality will create more sales in the end. Sadly, quality has always been an issue for Chrysler Corp, cheap cut rate interiors loaded with plastic. New transmissions and other major components not fully engineered prior to release.
    I no longer own a Chrysler product after decades of ownership, due only to the lack of innovation and poor quality.
    I would like to be able to once again see the proud Chrysler brand at the forefront of American built automobiles.
