General Motors will invest nearly $150 million in its Spring Hill manufacturing plant.

The investment will repurpose machinery and assembly equipment to allow the plant to build V8 engines, retaining about 200 jobs, according to a news release.

The upgrade will mark the first time the Spring Hill facility will be equipped to build V8 engines, and will allow the plant to quickly add capacity to build the small-block, 6.2L engines for its trucks and SUVs, including the Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab, GMC Sierra Crew Cab, Yukon Denali, Yukon XL Denali and the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV

“Spring Hill and its employees have a reputation for producing award-winning 4-cylinder engines,” UAW Local 1853 Chairman Mike Herron said in the release. “We appreciate GM recognizing these outstanding skills with the opportunity to build V8 engines for some of GM’s most popular full-size trucks and SUVs.”
