Spring Hill Plant Builds 2 Millionth Engine

According to UAW Local 1853 Chairman Mike Herron, Saturn's former Spring Hill Powertrain plant built its two millionth GM L-850 Ecotec 4-cylinder engine at around noon this past Wednesday (September 16th). The Tennessee-built engine is used in General Motors vehicles sold worldwide. The Associated Press reported this week that "the facility supplies engines in North America for the Chevrolet Cobalt, HHR and Malibu, the Saturn Aura and Vue, and the Pontiac G6; in Canada for the new Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain; in Europe for the Opel Insignia; and in Shanghai for the Buick LaCrosse."
