Ford's Romeo Engine Plant Builds 10 Millionth Motor

Ford's Romeo Engine Plant in Romeo, Mich. has reached an incredible milestone: it's produced its 10 millionth engine since the first motor was built at the facility in 1990.

Romeo builds two-valve and three-valve 4.6-liter V-8 engines for the Ford F-150 plus the Mustang, Econoline, Explorer, Crown Victoria or Grand Marquis models at an incredible rate of 140 finished mills an hour or 2.33 a minute.

The Romeo plant was originally used to build tractors before it was converted to engine production.

Why else should you care about the Romeo Engine Plant? It's where Ford is expected to make the upcoming Coyote 5.0-liter V-8.
