It hasn’t been to long since Chrysler LLC made the announcement that they would be putting one of their oldies to rest but it appears, they’re ready to move on. While production at the Detroit Mack II facility of the 3.7 liter PowerTech is working towards an end, the automaker’s newest star might just be getting another boost. Built in multiple places around North America, the 3.6 liter Pentastar can now be found in almost every Chrysler LLC product on the market and demand could be enough to warrant a $200 million investment and increased production.
The Wards 10 Best winning V6 engine currently calls Michigan and Mexico home but there is a serious chance that it could find one more birth place. According to an Autoblog article, Chrysler is considering piecing together the engine at the Mack I engine plant that currently builds the 4.7 liter PowerTech V8. With the Mack II plant ready for lights-out, the automaker has 200 workers that need to be relocated and moving them across the street simply makes sense. Reports have it that if the plan falls through, the Pentastar will more than likely be built in various new displacements. Whether or not the PowerTech is fully replaced by a Pentastar line up that includes an eight cylinder is only up to time to tell.
