The powertrain facility at Toyota's Georgetown plant has built its 8 millionth engine.

The engine was produced July 27. The plant's first engine, a four-cylinder, was built in November 1989.

Of the 8 million engines produced, 5.5 million were four-cylinder engines and 2.5 million were six-cylinder engines.

Currently, the plant produces three different engines: a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, and a 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine. They are used in the vehicles the plant produces including the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon and Venza. Georgetown's engines are also used in the Sienna minivan and Corolla.
