Next-Generation Chevy Camaro to Be Built in the U.S.
GM announced today the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro will be
assembled at the Lansing Grand River (LGR) Assembly Plant in Lansing,
Michigan. This decision is based on a comprehensive business case.
Lower capital investment and improved production efficiencies were key
factors in the business case. The Camaro is the only rear-wheel drive
(RWD) vehicle built at Oshawa. Assembling the next-generation Camaro
at LGR consolidates the RWD assembly with the Cadillac CTS and ATS. As
a result, GM will continue to deliver top-quality vehicles as
efficiently as possible.
GM will continue to meet the production targets agreed to with the
Canadian and Ontario governments during the 2009 restructuring.
Production of the current generation Chevrolet Camaro will continue on
the flexible manufacturing line at Oshawa Assembly until the end of
the current product lifecycle. The Buick Regal continues to be
produced there, and GM recently invested $185 million to support the
launch of two new products on the flex line as well: the all-new
Cadillac XTS and the next-generation Chevrolet Impala scheduled to
launch in 2013. In addition, GM recently announced it will add a third
shift to support the launch of the new Impala there. The consolidated
line at Oshawa Assembly will continue to produce the current
generation Chevrolet Impala and Equinox until June 2014.
