FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Flint Engine Operations will be building the all-new Duramax 3.0L turbo-diesel engine for the 2019 Silverado.

General Motors made the announcement today, which follows the automaker’s $263 million investment into Flint Engine Operations new engine line, announced in 2015.

The 2019 Silverado will be available with six engine/transmission combinations. And one of those choices will be built in Flint. The new turbo diesel will be paired with a Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission, and feature industry-exclusive technologies that optimize performance and efficiency. It 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,” said John Urbanic, Flint Engine Operations plant manager.

Flint Engine currently makes the 1.4L engines used in th3e Chevrolet Cruze, Equinox, and Volt.
