Most of us have never been inside an engine plant. But, we are lucky to have one right here in the Buffalo area that pumps out thousands of motors for new cars and trucks every single year!

The workers at the GM plant in Tonawanda build motors that have gone in new Chevy Silverado trucks and Corvettes. It is something that we all should be proud of. Hard working Western New Yorkers producing American made motors that will power cars and truck all over The United States and the world!

Tonawanda Engine sits across from the beautiful Niagara River in Buffalo, NY. It employs a diverse workforce to produce award winning engines for General Motors' most desired products. Its employees are firmly committed to helping the community in which they live and work, and have donated thousands of dollars and volunteered many hours to make Western NY a better place for all.

A friend of mine sent this video that shows a bunch of motors stacked up and ready for shipping to the next plants that will place the motors into a variety of General Motors vehicles. If you love cars, this is a beautiful sight!

Here are some of the engines/motors that come from this plant.

Ecotec 2.0L Turbo/2.5L – Chevrolet Camaro, Malibu, Colorado, Equinox, and Traverse, GMC Canyon, Acadia and Terrain and Cadillac ATS, CTS
4.3L V6, 5.3L V8; 6.2L V8 Ecotec3 Family of engines – Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe, GMC Yukon/Yukon Denali, and Cadillac Escalade

We are lucky to have a couple of automotive plants here in the Western New York area. From the GM workers in Tonawanda to the Ford plant in Woodlawn, there is plenty of pride that goes in to the vehicles that roll off the assembly line.
