GM is set to create a range of V-6 engines for both its mid-sized cars and minivans, according to Automotive News (15/8/00).

Quoting industry sources, the report says that the auto-maker is working on a least one new V-6 engine with Germany's Ricardo GmbH. According to these sources, the engines will debut in GM's Epsilon cars and next-generation minivans during model year 2004.

The 3.2-litre engine is set to replace the 3.1-and 3.4-litre engines used in GM's mid-sized cars and minivans.

Neither GM nor Ricardo would confirm the project, says the report.
