    GM Just Introduced a New 350 Small-Block V-8 Crate Engine
    General Motors announced today the release of a new 350 cubic-inch small-block V-8 crate engine, meant for use in the company's trucks, vans, and SUVs built from 1987 to 2002. Improved with CNC machining, updated part designs, and a warranty, it's set to be the go-to replacement for anyone in need of the new power plant for their workhorse.

    If you're a GM fan, you'll know the 350 small block has a long and storied history within the company. The engine made its first appearance in 1967 under the hood of the Chevy Camaro, before quickly spreading to the rest of the lineup. Continually updated and modernized, 19 (!) of Chevrolet's current crate engines still use the 350 block as a base. Since 2005, GM has sold over a quarter-million 350 crate engines to customers—pretty wild considering the design was nearly 40 years old by that point.

    This updated design includes brand-new (not remanufactured or refurbished) CNC machined block castings and cylinder heads, as well as forged steel crankshafts, new valve covers, new oil pans, and new timing covers. There will be three trims available: a standard Gen 1 for trucks, vans, and SUVs built from 1987 to 1995, a Gen 1e LD for light-duty trucks from 1996 to 2002, and a Gen 1e HD for heavy-duty trucks from 1996 to 2002.

    Best of all, every new 350 block comes with a 3-year/100,000-mile warranty, whichever comes first. GM hasn't released pricing, but says the engines are available now through dealerships.

    100,000 mile warranty is great for those who use it for commercial use and rack up a lot of miles.
