Chrysler invests in Michigan

Chysler has big plans for jobs expansion throughout the state of Michigan.

More than 1,200 jobs are coming to three Detroit area plants. Chrysler is investing more than $200 million in engine plants in Detroit and Trenton.

The company says the hirings will allow Chrysler to move forward with its plans for a more fuel-efficient engine that will eventually become standard on all Chrysler models.

In addition to the job additions in Detroit, about a 1,000 of the jobs will be at the Warren plant.

That facility produces a newly-redesigned Ram pickup and will add the third shift in March.
