A $425 million investment by General Motors in its Tonawanda Engine plant bore its first fruits Friday: the latest technology that will go into the next generation Ecotec 4-cylinder engines that will power the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu and 2013 Cadillac ATS. GM and UAW employees showed off flexible manufacturing that will support high-quality production of the 2.5L and 2.0L turbo and enable quick changeovers from one engine product to another. There are about 10,000 items to track to ensure launch quality and timing. 'The men and women of Tonawanda have always focused on safety, quality, and cost,' said GM Manufacturing Manager Jim Glynn. 'Although competitive reasons keep me from revealing actual dollar figures, I am happy to report that Tonawanda Engine has the best engine warranty in all of General Motors.'
