Through times of uncertainty and prosperity, GM engines have powered the machines that helped to change our world. The engines found in 1930s diesel-powered locomotives that made travel across the United States a reliable and efficient activity were the same engines that powered Allied submarines in World War II. This holds true today with GM engines powering our cities, our transportation, and our way of life.
GM Powertrain OEM Sales traces its history to the myriad of automotive companies that combined to form GM in 1908. The original companies included: Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmobile, and Cadillac. For many decades, each division produced its own engines and transmissions. In time, efficiency improvements could be made through increased cooperation between divisions.
The current GM Powertrain OEM Sales team is supported by 86 facilities, 17 countries, and approximately 48,700 members.
Every product created in our state-of-the-art facilities benefits from cutting-edge engine development and testing, ensuring peak results from our host of talented engineers.
When it comes to going further, it takes drive, innovation, and a history of more than 100 years of engineering excellence. The General Motors powertrain development facilities in Pontiac, Michigan and Chesterfield, Michigan, are the result of such excellence and stand as some of the most advanced powertrain development centers in the world.
