As General Motors marches forward to restarting its facilities in North America after closing them due to concerns over the coronavirus, another piece of the puzzle fell into place for 2020 Corvette production to restart.
The Buffalo News reports that GM’s Tonawanda Powertrain Plant will begin a “phased-in” return to production beginning on May 18th.
Tonawanda produces the 2020 Corvette’s 495-hp LT2 V8 engine.
The engine plant has been shut down since March 20th, the same day that production also stopped at the Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green.
Workers at the Corvette plant are expected to return the week of May 25th based on the North America Restart Cadence document that we first published last week.
