DETROIT (AP) – General Motors says it will invest $65 million in two plants and create or retain 163 jobs at those sites so it can make more four-cylinder engines.
GM will add capacity at its Tonawanda, NY, plant to make engines for its Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers.
It will invest $33 million there and create or retain 100 jobs.
GM will add capacity to build engines for its 2013 Malibu sedan at its plant in Spring Hill, Tenn. It will invest $32 million and create or retain 63 jobs there.
The investments are part of $2 billion in U.S. manufacturing investments that GM announced last month. The moves are expected to create or retain 4,000 jobs at 17 facilities.
