Fiat man takes over Mopar Powertrain
September 22nd, 2009 by DaveAdmin
Though powertrains have long been considered one of Chrysler’s strengths, as seen in the class-leading Neon 2.0 (when it arrived), Hemi
V8, and Pentastar V6, a Fiat executive has now taken over Chrysler’s Powertrain Engineering division.
Paolo Ferrero was just named Senior Vice President of Chrysler
Powertrain. He will report directly to CEO Sergio Marchionne, and will be responsible for all Chrysler
powertrain operations, with a current mandate of sharing with Fiat Powertrain Technologies. Ferrero holds a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Turin.
