FLINT, Mich. — General Motors will invest $150 million in equipment at its Flint truck plant to rev up production of its new Chevy Silverado and other vehicles.
GM President Mark Reuss made the announcement at a news conference at Flint Assembly on Wednesday, June 12, the automaker’s second major expansion of its full-size pickup production capacity this year, allowing it to increase production of the new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra heavy-duty pickups, which begin shipping to dealers this week.
This news follows GM’s announcement last month that it would expand light-duty, full-size pickup production capacity in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
“We are increasing production because we have the best line of trucks in the world built by the best workforce in the world, and our customers can’t get enough of them,” Reuss said. “This plant right here in Flint will build about 40,000 more heavy-duty Silverados and SIerras annually, including more crew cabs and diesel models.”
