Fiat man takes over Mopar Powertrain

by David Zatz on

Though powertrains have long been considered one of Chrysler’s strengths, as seen in the class-leading Neon 2.0 (when it arrived), Hemi V8, and Pentastar V6, a Fiat executive has now taken over Chrysler’s Powertrain Engineering division.

Paolo Ferrero was just named Senior Vice President of Chrysler Powertrain. He will report directly to CEO Sergio Marchionne, and will be responsible for all Chrysler Group powertrain operations, with a current mandate of sharing with Fiat Powertrain Technologies.  Ferrero holds a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Turin.
