Editor's note: The next-generation I-4 engine is not a “tigershark” engine. A previous version of this story incorrectly labeled it.
Stellantis said it's investing $99 million at three plants to produce a new 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that has "flexibility for hybrid-electric vehicle applications."
The automaker is making the investments at its Dundee Engine Complex in Michigan, Kokomo Casting Plant in Indiana and Etobicoke Casting Plant in Toronto.
The company said Monday that the next-generation I-6 engine will power two future hybrid models in North America and will be the first hybrid engine for the company in the region. Production is expected to begin in early 2025.
