Mound Road Engine was a Chrysler Corporation automobile engine factory in Detroit, Michigan. The plant was closed by DaimlerChrysler in 2002, with production shifting to the Mack Avenue Engine Complex. The factory had been home to Chrysler's production of large-displacement V8 and V10 engines for 47 years.

The facility was torn down in late 2003 and the land paved over because it was cheaper to pay taxes on parking lot than an empty building. The newly paved area, as well as the old employee parking lots, are now used to store vehicles that were manufactured at Warren Truck Assembly before shipping them to dealerships.

Mount Elliott Tool and Die, another Chrysler facility, is located directly behind what used to be the Mound Road Engine plant.
