TRENTON — The investment at the Trenton Engine Complex is growing.

The City Council recently approved a tax abatement on $40 million in additional upgrades at the complex on Van Horn Road, following approval of abatements on $114 million of investment at the plant in June.

The Oct. 15 council meeting was the first public mention of the increased investment.

“It will give the plant flexibility in its production process to not only build the Pentastar V-6 engine, but also under different times, build the Tigershark engine as well,” said Leven Wiess, a senior manager of civic and community relations at Chrysler.“So, it would be a flex line in addition to increasing the capacity of our Pentastar engine.”

A major announcement on Thursday from Chrysler is expected to sink $200 million and bring 250 jobs to the Mack Avenue Engine 1 plant on St. Jean Street in Detroit. Currently, the Detroit plant employs about 150 workers. About 100 of those workers build pickup truck engines. Chryslers will add a new engine into the plant's mix -- the 3.6 liter, midsize engine it now is building Downriver at its Trenton Engine Plant, in Mexico and in Dundee, Mich.

The majority of those jobs won't be new. Just layed off workers from Mack 1 and Mack 2.
