Ford added 60 more jobs to Cleveland Plant


It seems like the auto industry is having a come back. Ford is investing $155 million in Cleveland Engine Plant No. 1 and adding 60 jobs to the Cleveland Plant in Ohio. The new investment supports the new fuel-efficient 3.7-liter V-6 engine for 2011 Mustang that delivers an expected best-in-class 30 mpg highway and 305 horsepower.

Ford already has invested $1.8 billion and added 1,260 jobs in North American powertrain engineering and facilities to support 2011 vehicle launches.

“Ford is absolutely committed to delivering class-leading fuel efficiency with every new vehicle we introduce, and this investment in Cleveland provides further proof,” said Bill Russo, director of manufacturing for Ford’s powertrain operations.

On sale this spring, the 2011 Ford Mustang delivers 305 horsepower for V-6 coupe.  The all-aluminum dual-overhead cam (DOHC), 3.7-liter Duratec 24-valve V-6 engine delivers an estimated 30 mpg on the highway with a six-speed automatic transmission.
