General Motors' Town of Tonawanda plant's engine for the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has won new recognition.
Wards Auto named the small-block V8 engine for the Corvette one of the 10 best engines and propulsion systems for 2020. GM Tonawanda plant director Ram Ramanujam said the recognition "is an affirmation that the team here at the Tonawanda engine plant builds the world’s best engines."
Last year, the Tonawanda plant made Wards' 10 best list for an engine produced for the Chevrolet Silverado.
Wards said it chose the winners after evaluating 26 new or significantly improved engines and electric propulsion systems during everyday driving in metro Detroit in October and November. To be eligible this year, vehicles must have a base price no higher than $65,000.
