DETROIT — Chrysler Group LLC will expand its plant in Mexico to build more of the “Tigershark” engines that will go into many of its passenger cars, sources told Reuters on Tuesday.
Chrysler is to spend $164 million to expand the Saltillo Engine Plant in Ramos Arizpe in the Mexican state of Coahuila and about 500 jobs will be added, the sources said.
The 2-liter and 2.4-liter Tigershark engines are now only in two vehicles, the Dodge Dart and the Toledo-built Jeep Cherokee.
