    Hi All:

    After 24 years GM is renaming GM Powertrain to GM Global Propulsion Systems. GM’s Global Propulsion Systems is collectively the group of more than 8,600 people that design, develop and engineer all propulsion related products and controls for GM worldwide.

    The new naming does not stop the global reality that emissions and efficiency standards the world over are converging and creating engines for the global marketplace only makes sense. Within the range, GM Global Propulsion Systems is responsible for I3 gas and I4 turbo diesels to FCVs and battery electrics along with 6-, 7-, 8-, 9- and 10-speed ATs and CVTs.

    With a future 2.0L Turbo Diesel inside, this could be one of the most desirable GM product in years!​

    GM is the first OEM to formally transition to a new naming convention to reflect global industry trends.

    While the renaming has nothing to do with current or near term development projects, GM’s 200+ mile range Chevrolet Bolt BEV and the non-hybrid 2.0L turbo diesel Chevrolet Cruze (estimated at 46 mpgUS highway) are just two of the projects this team is capable of.

    Nearly 50 percent of the Global Propulsion Systems engineering workforce is involved with alternative or electrified propulsion systems!
