Ford says it is starting production of two new engines at its plant in Cleveland.

The company said that production is beginning at the plant on the 2.0-liter and 2.3-liter EcoBoost engines for vehicles built in North America. It will mark the first time those engines have been built in the U.S. They previously were built in Valencia, Spain.

The 2.0-liter engine will be available in the Ford Edge. The 2.3-liter engine will be available in the Ford Mustang, Focus RS, Explorer and Lincoln MKC.

The company in 2013 invested nearly $200 million and added 450 new jobs to support production of the EcoBoost engines in Cleveland.

Those engines were introduced in 2009 to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

It's still highly likely that the RS will be getting it's 2.3L EcoBoost engine from Valencia, after all the entire car is assembled in Europe and for Europe the 2.0 and 2.3L EcoBoost engines are still going to be produced there.

Not 100% sure what this has to do with the RS, but it's still good news for the other Fords sold here.
