Ford plant to keep building Jaguar V-6 engine

By Associated Press

CLEVELAND -- Ford Motor Co. will keep building the Jaguar V-6 engine in its suburban Brook Park plant instead of moving production to England in 2004.

The decision increases job security for about 500 workers who build the engine at Engine Plant No. 2, which has 1,875 hourly workers. The V-6 is used in the Jaguar S-Type and X-Type.

Dearborn, Mich.-based Ford had announced in 2001 that it would move production of the engines to its plant in Brigend, England, so they would be closer to the final assembly plant. The automaker has decided to instead build six-cylinder Volvo engines at Brigend, Ford spokesman John Gardiner said.

Ford also builds the Duratec V-6 engine in Brook Park. The main engine for the Taurus and Escape, it's easy to convert to the Jaguar engine. The Jaguar line should be safe as long as Duratec production continues, which should be many years, said Eric Fedewa, director of global powertrain forecasts at analyst CSM Worldwide in Surrey, England.
