Plant History
In 2007, Chrysler announced a $730 million investment to produce a new fuel efficient V-6 engine, known as the Pentastar engine. The all-new 822,000-square-foot engine plant will produce the most advanced six-cylinder engine in the history of Chrysler, with an optimized integration of select technologies that deliver refinement, fuel efficiency and performance. The Pentastar delivers a fuel efficiency improvement of up to 8 percent on average when compared with previous Chrysler Group V-6 engines.

The Trenton plant will have a competitive labor agreement that incorporates World Class Manufacturing initiatives and flexible CNC-based machining, volume-bundled parts purchasing, volume-bundled capital investment and standardized tooling.

Over the long term, Chrysler will streamline its V-6 gas engine offerings from seven options to the new fuel-efficient, state-of-the-art 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar engine, thereby reducing manufacturing complexity.
Awards
The all-new Trenton South Engine Plant was awarded a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Green Building System certification for meeting the highest environmental standards. Trenton is one of only four auto manufacturing facilities to receive a LEED rating of any kind and the only engine manufacturing facility in the world to achieve the honor.
