DUNDEE, Michigan -- Chrysler Group may quit the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance, its global joint-venture engine partnership with Hyundai Motor Co. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp., as the U.S. automaker moves closer to its new partner, Fiat S.p.A., alliance spokesman Len Sennish said.
There are discussions about that going on at the highest levels, he said. Chrysler and Hyundai officials declined to comment.
The Dundee, Michigan, venture began building four-cylinder engines for Chrysler models in 2005. The plant is one of three in the United States, Japan and South Korea that build versions of a common four-cylinder engine platform for the partners in their home markets.
