From Spring Hill to Cathedral City, General Motors Serves Up High Mileage

October 7, 2010

Last month, General Motors announced plans to invest $483 million between now and 2012 into its powertrain facility in Spring Hill, Tennessee. For customers of our Cathedral City GM dealership, that $483 million doesn’t just benefit the local economy surrounding the plant (although the boost to domestic jobs is good news in itself). It benefits drivers here in California, as the Spring Hill plant will be where GM employees assemble the next-generation, 4-cylinder Ecotec engine.

That next generation will pair fuel economy with solid performance: meaning cars that feel good to drive and don’t sting your wallet. Already, there are a number of exceptionally fuel-efficient GM vehicles on the road. Under Chevrolet alone, there are eight vehicles (including not just sedans, but crossovers too!) that get 29 mpg and higher.

That fuel economy will only keep getting stronger as GM puts additional funding into engine development. We look forward to continuing to benefit from the fruits of that labor. The fruit of fuel economy already tastes good, and it’s only going to keep getting better.

You can find fuel efficient vehicles that are well-equipped, fun to drive, and as spacious as your needs dictate here at Jessup Auto Plaza. We’re a Coachella Valley General Motors dealership serving Cathedral City, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Indio, Hemet, Banning, Beaumont, Yucaipa, and other nearby communities.
