Mayor says Chrysler will invest $114M, partially reopen closed plant

According to a statement from the mayor of Trenton, Michigan, Chrysler is planning to invest $114 million to partially reopen its Trenton North plant, creating 270 jobs in the process. This investment would bring 400,000 square feet of the two million-square-foot plant up and running again.

Gerald Brown, mayor of Trenton, says that Chrysler will likely use the plant to make parts for its Pentastar V6 engine, which is built at the Trenton South plant right on the same campus. According to Automotive News, Chrysler has declined to comment on the investment, but says that some sort of announcement will come "sometime very soon."

Currently, the Pentastar V6 engine is used throughout the entire Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep range, and it will soon find its way under a host of new vehicles, as well.
