Following a six-week-long targeted strike against the Detroit Big Three automakers, Ford reached a tentative agreement with the United Auto Workers (UAW) on a new contract in late October.

This document outlining those investments from the automaker notes that it will sink $120 million into the Lima Engine plant, as well as the fact that production of the Ford V6 Cyclone engines will continue for the next several years, at least. At the moment, this family consists of the 3.3L V6 Duratec – utilized in the Police Interceptor Utility in naturally-aspirated or hybrid form – and the 3.5L V6 Duratec, which is standard in the Ford Transit.

In addition to this little tidbit of news, the UAW’s new master contract with Ford revealed more details about the future of additional powertrains, as Ford Authority recently reported. This includes the fact that Ford will invest $100 million into the Cleveland Engine plant, which builds a trio of EcoBoost engines – the 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost, 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost, and 3.5L V6 EcoBoost – that it will sink $20 million into the Dearborn Engine plant, where production of the supercharged 5.2L V8 will carry on, and that it will also continue to build the twin-turbocharged 2.7L EcoBoost V6 Nano engine at Lima as well.
