GM announces a new crate V8 for legacy cars
General Motors will once again start offering a 5.7-liter V8 gas engine for vans, SUVs and pickup trucks wearing GMC and Chevrolet badges and produced between 1987 and 2002.
Owners of legacy models such as the GMC Sierra shown in the video will be able to replace their outdated or faulty engine with a brand new one. Earlier on, GM only offered an option to have the engine repaired at a factory; soon, customers will be given the opportunity to replace it with a new one coming with 36 months or 100,000 miles’ worth of warranty.
The new crate engine is slightly different from its older counterparts, which GM claims is mostly done to ensure its reliability. New elements include the cylinder heads, the distribution shaft, and the valve caps.
