Located in Buffalo, NY, the Tonawanda Engine plant sits across from the beautiful Niagara River, and employs a diverse workforce to produce award winning engines for General Motors’ most desired products.
In the video above, Hot Rod magazine drove a brand-new 2016 Camaro SS to the GM Tonawanda engine plant to see how an LT1 engine is made.
The plant produces the following engines for GM:
- Ecotec 2.0L Turbo/2.5L – Chevrolet Malibu & Impala, Buick Regal & Cadillac ATS & CTS
- EcoTec3 4.3L V6, 5.3L V8 & 6.2L V8 – Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Pickup Trucks and Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban, Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon & Yukon Denali SUVs
