General Motors' Tonawanda Engine Plant has been selected as the first of the automaker's plants to produce a new V-8 engine line that utilizes a cylinder deactivation technology that helps the engine produce only the power that is needed, in order to increase efficiency. Plant officials announced Monday it will result in the retention of 635 jobs.
