    Reuters:

    Chrysler Group LLC, the U.S. automaker majority owned by Fiat SpA, said on Thursday it will invest $238 million to boost engine and truck production in Michigan and add up to 1,250 jobs to meet new demand.

    The company is spending $198 million to make its Pentastar V6 engine at the Mack I Engine Plant, which currently builds a larger engine for the Ram 1500 truck. Production will begin in early 2014 and Chrysler may add up to 250 jobs there, subject to market conditions.

    The automaker is spending $40 million to install a flexible production line at its Trenton North plant, which can build both the V-6 engine and the Tigershark four-cylinder engine.



    Quick! We need more pissy-pants CEOs of pizza joints and Denny's franchise owners to throw little baby hissy-fits to balance this out!

    I really wish their cars didn't suck because they usually look so good.

    As others said, I don't know anyone that has ever bought one nor do I plan on getting one.

    With that said, I am glad we didn't let them go under.

    I want to see the American Auto Industry thrive in the future.
