Chrysler Adds Jobs to Pickup, Engine Factories

Chrysler Group LLC will add 1,250 workers at three U.S. plants to boost output of pickups and engines, Bloomberg reported.

Chrysler plans to invest $238 million in the factories, including the Ram 1500 assembly plant in Warren, Michigan, according to a statement. The Warren factory will add a third crew of workers and 1,000 new jobs, Bloomberg said.

Chrysler will invest $198 million and as many as 250 jobs at its Mack I Engine plant in Detroit to boost production of the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine. Another $40 million will be invested in the Trenton North engine factory in Trenton, Michigan.

The Mack I plant currently builds V-8 engines, but that line will be phased out and the plan will shift to producing only the Pentastar engine by early 2014, Bloomberg said.
