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.
