Can you provide a source for that info? If you look at the window sticker for any Palisade, the US/Canadian parts content is 2%. That doesn't jive with an engine being built in the US.The 3.8 L Atkinson cycle Lambda engine used in the KIA telluride and Hyundai Palisade are made here in the US
all other Lambda engines are made in Korea.
According to Hyundai It is manufactured at Hyundai's HMMA plant in Montgomery, Alabama, United States still.
1. The Wikipedia link has outdated info. The lambda engine WAS made in the USA. It no longer is.
Note your total parts content only adds up to 94% on the list
It really does. Everyone should look at the window sticker before buying. I had forgotten that it showed the country of origin until I went to look at it for the part content %. This helped answer the point of contention in this thread. I had read somewhere that the AL plant had stopped producing the lambda engine in 2011, but it is hard to find an exact confirmation of that - it can be inferred from other articles. The window sticker confirmed it.Thanks for pointing out the window sticker! Says a lot.
Nobody's saying you should. I didn't know the answer when I first asked you in this thread. I only remembered the window sticker later, which helped answer the question.Sorry I just don't know it all, but that's the way we learn
Argh... I know you didn't say the Palisade isn't made in Korea. We're talking about the engine. And did you see the picture I attached to this thread? It's from my window sticker and clearly lists the engine as being made in Korea.Eric I'm not saying the palisade isn't made in korea.
Have you seen the new plant in Alabama, they opened a new head production building
HYUNDAI MOTOR MANUFACTURING ALABAMA CELEBRATES GRAND OPENING OF NEW CYLINDER HEAD MACHINING PLANT | Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama,LLC.It only makes 4 cylinder heads for 2 engines. And will now increase engine production from 600,000 units to 650,000.
Don't know where they list these as being made on window stickers but plant is still making some engines as I have a nephew who works there for over 10 years now. Not at new cylinder head building of course. That only opened in May 2019
