GM Invests $148M in V-8 Engine Production

February 18, 2016

General Motors will invest $148 million to repurpose flexible machining and assembly equipment to expand V-8 engine production at its Spring Hill Manufacturing Plant in Tennessee, the company announced.

The upgrade will allow GM to add capacity to produce its small block 6.2L V-8 engine available in trucks and SUVs such as the Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab, GMC Sierra Crew Cab, Yukon Denali, Yukon XL Denali, and Cadillac Escalade.

GM also builds engines for 6.2L V-8 trucks in Tonawanda, N.Y., and St. Catharines, Ontario.

The investments in Spring Hill are part of $709.4 million in investments GM has announced since ratification of the UAW-GM national agreement in 2015. Since 2010, GM has announced investments of more than $1.35 billion for the Spring Hill operations.
