Kenosha Engine is a Chrysler automobile factory in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The factory opened in 1917 and was acquired by Chrysler with their purchase of American Motors in August 1987.

The buildings have 1,900,000 square feet (180,000 m2) of floor space and the property is located on 106 acres (0.43 km2) at 5555 30th Avenue, Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The opening of the 3.5-liter engine line, in 2002, came after the company invested $624 million in a 450,000-square-foot (42,000 m2) expansion of the plant.[1]

As of January 2007, employment at this facility was 850 workers.

Kenosha Engine is one of Chrysler Group Powertrain plants scored at the top of their segment according to the 2007 Harbour Report North America report, a broadly accepted measure of productivity in the automotive industry.[2]

Significantly, Chrysler excluded employees of the Kenosha plant from its February 2, 2009 buyout offer for hourly workers.
