TONAWANDA, New York — General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) today confirmed its Tonawanda, New York, engine plant will build the company’s next-generation 6.2L Small Block V-8 engine that will power the all-new 2020 #Chevrolet #Corvette #stingray. Production of the 2020 #Corvette #stingray begins at GM’s Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly plant in late 2019.

This news follows the reveal of the 2020 #Corvette last week in Tustin, California.

Powered by the Tonawanda-built next-gen 6.2L Small Block V-8 LT2 engine, the 2020 #stingray will offer customers the most horsepower and torque of any entry #Corvette: SAE-certified to 495 hp and SAE-certified to 470 lb.-ft. of torque (when equipped with performance exhaust.)

“The 2020 #stingray is Chevrolet’s first production mid-engine #Corvette – the fastest, most powerful entry #Corvette ever - offering new levels of performance, technology and craftsmanship,” said Mark Reuss, #gm president, during a visit to the plant to meet with employees and community leaders. “The Tonawanda team is up to the challenge to build this new LT2 engine at world-class quality levels that #Corvette customers have come to expect.”

Tonawanda currently builds a variety of award-winning engines used in a wide range of #gm products including:

  • 2.0L Turbo/2.5L – Chevrolet Camaro, Malibu, Colorado, Equinox, Traverse and Impala; Buick Regal, GMC Canyon, Acadia and Terrain and Cadillac ATS and CTS.
  • 4.3L V-6, 5.3L V-8; 6.2L V-8 – Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe, GMC Yukon/Yukon Denali and Cadillac Escalade.
  • 6.6L HD Small Block gas V-8 – 2020 #Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD.

In 2016, #gm announced it would invest nearly $300 million in the Tonawanda plant to prepare the facility for future engine production. The next-gen 6.2L V-8 completes the work related to the investment. #gm has invested more than $23 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations over the past decade.

Tonawanda employs more than 1,500 people and the hourly workforce is represented by UAW Local 774.
