Ford says new engine will add 300 jobs in Lima

LIMA (AP) — Ford says it will invest $500 million and add 300 jobs at its engine plant in Lima so that it can begin making a new V-6 engine.

The automaker announced Friday that the plant will make the new 2.7-liter engines for the 2015 Ford F-150.

Ford’s Lima engine plant employs about 900 workers.

The company announced earlier this month that it will build its Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks at its assembly plant in Avon Lake.
