GM begins assembling engines for cars 30 years agoAugust 10, 2020
This will greatly facilitate repairs for the owners of such vehicles. At the moment, only some of the details have been disclosed.
General Motors begins production of engines for old cars. We are talking about the powerful 5.7-liter engines that were installed on SUVs, pickups and vans from 1987 to 2002. This was great news for the owners of such cars, since many owners value their cars and are not going to change them, and problems with finding spare parts periodically appear.
General Motors said the engine will receive three different boost options, but power is being kept under wraps for now. However, we managed to find out something – the main news was that the engines will not use remanufactured parts, the engines will be completely new. There will be some improvements in the power units – GM has updated the cylinder head, and the crankshafts are now made of better quality forged steel. All parts will be manufactured on modern conveyor belts.
The preliminary cost of the “service engines” will be 3,000 US dollars; they will be sold at Chevrolet and GMC dealerships.
The warranty conditions are already known – 3 years or 100 thousand miles, whichever comes first.
Earlier it became known that the updated version of the Chevrolet Camaro entered the conveyor. Recall that the sports car has already gone through one update not so long ago. The novelty will receive a modern transmission, as well as an improved infotainment complex.
