GM Korea said yesterday it will invest over 100 billion won ($92.1 million) to expand its facilities for producing next-generation turbocharged gasoline engines.

The Korean unit of U.S. auto giant GM said the new four-cylinder turbocharged engines will be produced at its Bupyeong plant in Incheon. They will be attached to Chevrolet models including the Trax SUV from the first half of next year.

“This significant investment is a clear evidence of GM’s long-term commitment in GM Korea and confidence in our ability to offer more advanced engines to satisfy our customers,” said GM Korea President and CEO Sergio Rocha in a statement.

“As car buyers keep making fuel efficiency and performance a priority, we must remain committed to developing competitive, innovative solutions to exceed their expectations.”

The nation’s third-largest automaker will be one of three agents manufacturing small turbocharged engines for GM by next year.

It claims the new engine gives consumers the most competitive fuel economy and performance.
