GM to build all-new turbo diesel engine for Chevrolet range

January 25, 2018

General Motors has announced that the company’s Flint Engine Operations, located in Flint, Michigan, USA, will serve as the manufacturing site for its all-new Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado.

The 2019 Silverado will be available with six engine and transmission combinations, one of which will be the new 3.0L inline-six cylinder turbo-diesel. The new turbo-diesel will be paired with a Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission and is said to feature industry-exclusive technologies that optimise performance and efficiency. The engine is expected to be an efficiency leader in the Silverado lineup.

“The next-generation Silverado builds on the success of our current models, many of which are produced here in Flint. We are proud to expand the industry-leading diesel portfolio here in Vehicle City,” stated John Urbanic, Flint Engine Operations plant manager.

The Flint Engine facility currently produces 1.4L engines used in the Chevrolet Cruze, Equinox and Volt.
