When you have something great, there’s no reason you shouldn’t invest in it, which is why it comes as no surprise that General Motors recently announced a combined $233 million investment into Cadillac SRX assembly plants. The American carmaker will invest $185 million into its Spring Hill, Tennessee manufacturing complex to make small gas engines and assemble the next-generation SRX, while also investing an additional $48.4 million into their Bedford, Indiana plant. These investments will help GM support the newest addition to the Ecotec engine family.
“The new Ecotec engine family represents the most advanced and efficient small displacement gasoline engines in GM’s history,” said Arvin Jones, GM North America manufacturing manager. “It was a good business decision to produce this powertrain in Bedford and Spring Hill. Both teams have strong performance records, especially in quality.”
Spring Hill will be one of six assembly plants around the world that will be producing the newest Ecotec engine, which will be joining the ranks of 11 other engines varying from a 1.0-liter to a 1.5-liter. For more information on this new engine family, make sure to contact DeVoe Cadillac today!
