Together, the investments announced today sum up $167 million and as a result bring the total to $350 million. The Spring Hills factory in Tennessee makes the Equinox SUV.
One possible model to be built there is the TrailBlazer body-on-frame SUV, already assembled in Thailand. This model is built on the same platform as the Colorado pickup, expected in the US late next year as a 2015MY.
“Today’s announcement recognizes the commitment of Spring Hill employees and leadership," said Mark Reuss, president, GM North America. “As a team, they draw upon the plant's unique heritage and dedicated work force to deliver top quality for our customers.”
“I would like to thank General Motors for its confidence that the highly skilled members of UAW Local 1853 can successfully build mid-size vehicles with high quality here at Spring Hill,” said UAW Vice President Joe Ashton, who directs the union’s GM Department. “The hard work and dedication of our members once again proves that we can competitively manufacture vehicles for the future right here in Tennessee.”
