"It's very encouraging news, it's very positive news," Spring Hill Mayor Michael Dinwiddie said in an interview. "I'm certainly very optimistic, and it's great news for this area. ... Hopefully this does come to fruition and once again change the history of the area -- start producing cars again, start lifting up the economy."1
The mayor reinforced his point: "Everyone I've talked to is optimistic that something positive is going to happen with the plant. The tricky part is pinpointing a time when that is going to happen."2
GMC's Terrain comes with two engine options: a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with direct injection, and a 3.0-liter DOHC direct injected V6 delivering an estimated 264 horsepower. The 2.4 liter produces highway fuel economy of 32 mpg, and city rating of 22. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. An ECO mode activates optimal fuel economy by lowering torque.Source: 1,2http://www.torquenews.com/1063/why-reopening-idled-spring-hill-factory-makes-sense-gm-and-uaw
