Jan 07, 2013– Toledo, USA (Techreleased) – Just 21 months after building the 1 millionth rear-wheel-drive six-speed transmission, Toledo Transmission Operations produced the 2 millionth unit.
The RWD6 transmission is built into the Chevrolet Corvette, Camaro, Silverado HD, Tahoe, Suburban and Express, GMC Sierra HD, Yukon, Yukon XL, and Savana and Cadillac Escalade.
“The entire workforce exhibits a sense of ownership and pride in the transmissions they build,” said Donald Morand, area manager RWD Transmissions. “This continued dedication will lead us into our next big launch – the eight-speed – and the shared vision of continued improvement will make us successful.”
Future production includes a previously announced $322 million investment to produce the next generation of fuel efficient GF6 Gen3 and RWD eight-Speed transmissions.
In August 2012, Toledo Transmission Operations built the 1 millionth front-wheel-drive (GF6) transmission at the plant.
