Chrysler Ditching Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance

Edward Niedermeyer
by Edward Niedermeyer

Chrysler has removed Hyundai and Mitusbishi logos from the joint Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance plant in Dundee, Michigan, reports the Freep. Plant employees anonymously confirm ChryCo’s executive desire to be rid of the alliance, and GEMA reps tell Automotive News [sub] that “there are discussions about that going on at the highest levels.” The Dundee plant manufactures 1.8-, 2.0- and 2.4-liter Hyundai-designed engines for Chrysler’s small cars, and internationally the alliance builds engines for over twenty models. The obvious motivation is the same as all of Chrysler’s recent announcements, namely moving into a tighter orbit around planet Fiat. Chrysler is proving to be more useful to Fiat as a tool to screw with Fiat’s international competitors than as a way of making inroads on the American market. Meanwhile, Fiat’s actual plan for Chrysler in the US seems to be limited to creating a client for Fiat’s engines and platforms. So much so that Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne is reportedly considering replacing Cummins diesel engines with Fiat oil burners in upcoming Ram 1500 models.

    Autojunkie - It wasn't me who doubted DaimlerChrysler's (as it was known at the time) contribution to the World Engine project...I think you confused my post with the one made by the following poster! And since it sounds as though you may have an inside track on such things, do you happen to have any current news or thoughts regarding the new Chrysler V6?

  • AMcA My theory is that that when the Big 3 gave away the store to the UAW in the last contract, there was a side deal in which the UAW promised to go after the non-organized transplant plants. Even the UAW understands that if the wage differential gets too high it's gonna kill the golden goose.
  • MKizzy Why else does range matter? Because in the EV advocate's dream scenario of a post-ICE future, the average multi-car household will find itself with more EVs in their garages and driveways than places to plug them in or the capacity to charge then all at once without significant electrical upgrades. Unless each vehicle has enough range to allow for multiple days without plugging in, fighting over charging access in multi-EV households will be right up there with finances for causes of domestic strife.
  • 28-Cars-Later WSJ blurb in Think or Swim:Workers at Volkswagen's Tennessee factory voted to join the United Auto Workers, marking a historic win for the 89- year-old union that is seeking to expand where it has struggled before, with foreign-owned factories in the South.The vote is a breakthrough for the UAW, whose membership has shrunk by about three-quarters since the 1970s, to less than 400,000 workers last year.UAW leaders have hitched their growth ambitions to organizing nonunion auto factories, many of which are in southern states where the Detroit-based labor group has failed several times and antiunion sentiment abounds."People are ready for change," said Kelcey Smith, 48, who has worked in the VW plant's paint shop for about a year, after leaving his job at an warehouse in town. "We look forward to making history and bringing change throughout the entire South."   ...Start the clock on a Chattanooga shutdown.
