Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will invest $74.7 million to retool the north plant of its Trenton Engine Complex in Michigan for production of its next generation four-cylinder engine.

This new engine will begin production in the third quarter of 2017, and it will improve fuel economy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions, according to a release.

Since 2009, FCA has announced investments of more than $2 million in Michigan and created 15,600 new jobs.

The Trenton North Engine Plant first began production in 1952 and was idled in May 2011 after producing more than 38 million engines, according to FCA. It reopened in late 2011 and added a flexible production line in 2012.

More information on the engine specific application will be released at a later date, according to the automaker.
