General Motors announced plans said Friday to spend more than $900 million to update four factories to build the next-generation V8 for big pickup trucks and SUVs. Factories in Rochester, New York, Defiance, Ohio and Bay City, Michigan will see investments, some to make V8 engine components as well as parts for future electric vehicles. GM's operations in Rochester will get $68 million, with $56 million to produce battery pack cooling lines for electric vehicles. The rest will go for tools to make intake manifolds and fuel injection rails for the new V8.
