Exclamation Official: 6th Gen Camaro Production to Move to U.S. Lansing Grand River Plant

Quote:
GM Press Release:

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.

For now, we can tell you that it does mean Chevrolet is committed to the Camaro, and we are already planning for the arrival of the sixth-generation car. It does not mean we are ready to announce the timing of the next-generation, or to confirm any details about a future Camaro.

Introduced as a 2010 model year, the fifth-generation Camaro still continues to be a success thanks to fans like you -- and we are not done yet. This year alone, we launched the Camaro ZL1 coupe and convertible, the Camaro 1LE, and introduced the Camaro Hot Wheels edition. We still have more news to come, and expect the fifth-generation Camaro, built by the team in Oshawa, will continue to bring new people to the Camaro community.

Thanks for your support, and we look forward to sharing more Camaro news with you in the future.

More like Alpha-based cars are already being built at Lansing Grand River.

It will be nice to see it built stateside again. What happens to Oshawa? Get a new platform on the switchover or are they done up there? It seems that the plant was just redone not too long ago...cannot be obsolete yet can it?

They'll maintain Epsilon-II production. Probably Equinox overflow as well.

I'm sure Oshawa is going to play a part in GM global manufacturing.

Look, they were built in the U.S. before, and they've been built in Canada for almost 1/2 the time the Camaro's been around. So to see them move the final assembly back to the states isn't majorly upsetting. Obviously it is to the Oshawa community, but apparently GM feels it makes better business sense going forward.

Personally, I think the alpha has a whole lot to do with it, but perhaps a little bit of right to work as well. It'll be interesting if any other alphas end up in Oshawa. If it does, then there may be other reasons.
