General Motorshas introduced a new version of its iconic 350 V8 that is intended to serve as a low-cost replacement engine for older GM trucks and vans.
The GM Service 350 V8 is built around a brand new four-bolt block with new cylinder head and block castings, a forged steel crankshaft, new valve covers, CNC-machined cylinder heads and block castings and a new oil pan and timing cover, among more. A GM Genuine Parts product, the Service 350 V8 is backed by a 3-year/100,000 mile limited warranty.
The engine will be available in the following variants:
Gen 1 (for 1987-1995 GM trucks, vans and SUVs)
Gen 1e LD (for 1996-2002 GM light-duty trucks)
Gen 1e HD (for 1996-2002 GM heavy-duty trucks)
Certain 350 cubic inch V8s available to purchase from GM Genuine Parts are remanufactured engines based on older repurposed 350 blocks. This new GM Service 350 V8 is all-new and features no remanufactured components, ensuring reliability and longevity. There is no core charge on these engines, either, unlike many remanufactured motors.
