Updated with press release. They should just start calling the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant the “Cadillac Assembly” plant, as that is all they build there. And with the addition of the impending Cadillac ATS compact sport sedan slated to be assembled at the facility, that’s all the plant will continue to build.
General Motors has made it official that the company will be investing $190 million into the plant so that it can be outfitted to build the ATS. The move will bring 600 people back to work. The 11-year-old, 2.5 million sq.ft. facility currently assembles (relevant) Cadillac models including the entire CTS line.
Along with Lansing’s Grand River Assembly plant, the Delta Township plant (which builds all of The General’s Lambda-based crossovers) will also receive $37 million in upgrades.
Considering that GM’s upcoming and all-new RWD-platform, titled Alpha, is rumored to also underpin the next generation CTS along with the ATS, we should be on a lookout for more product announcements for the plant in the coming months.
