Dundee keeps going

by David Zatz on

Dundee Engine, actually two plants, was originally opened in Michigan with the idea of selling four-cylinder engines to Hyundai and Mitsubishi. Both companies chose to build their own, and Dundee ended up, with the Caliber, Compass, and Patriot refusing to soar in sales, under-used.

There was some question about the future of Dundee, with a new engine family being prepared, but it now appears that at some point between 2015 and 2019, a new engine will be launched and the current workforce will be retained. Whether this new engine is a completely new series, which FCA has said it is working on, or a turbocharged version of the current four, is unknown.

Dundee, which sits well south of Chrysler’s other plants in Michigan, makes both the Chrysler 2.0/2.4 engines and the Fiat 1.4, the latter only for North America.
