Timing of new Mopar engine revealed

by David Zatz on

FCA US will invest $74.7 million in the Trenton (Michigan) Engine Complex to produce the next generation four-cylinder engine. It will replace the Pentastar V6 on a flexible production line installed four years ago in Trenton North; the V6 will still be made in Trenton South, Mack Avenue, and Saltillo (Mexico).

The engine, designed in Auburn Hills (and possibly shown above), will finally be produced in the third quarter of 2017, and will have greater power with better fuel economy.

The company made no mention of the Dundee plant, a modern facility which currently makes four cylinder Chrysler and Fiat engines.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
