AutoNews: Mack may get new V6

An article by Larry Vellequette of Automotive News confirmed that Chrysler has been considering the production of Pentastar V6 engines at the Mack Avenue I plant. The plant, which currently builds the 4.7 liter V8 used only in Ram trucks, would, with a $200 million investment and incentives from city and state governments, switch over to the Pentastar V6.

Originally, Chrysler had planned for three plants to make the new engines. With two plants, the company has reportedly been finding it difficult to provide enough engines even without demand from Ram trucks.

The Mack II plant is to be idled when it stops making the 3.7 liter V6 engine, the last “non-Pentastar” V6 made by Chrysler. Allpar reported last week that Mack Avenue might see production of parts for the Pentastar V6.
