Word from local news outlets in Tennessee is that General Motors is expected to say that it will produce the next-generation Cadillac SRX at the Spring Hill assembly plant for the North American market (and not China). Also on track to be built at Spring Hill is a next-generation GMC Terrain, though it’s unclear if that will be included in tomorrow’s announcement or not.
The plant currently serves as extra production capacity for the Chevrolet Equinox, which despite its age, remains extremely popular. Meanwhile, the current Cadillac SRX is built in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico. The future of that plant remains unclear.
The Tennessean claims that the all-new, 2016 Cadillac SRX will begin production late next year. The GMC will follow later in spring 2016 as a 2017 model. Around this time last year, GM announced a $167 million dollar investment for the two future vehicles, which is expected to create or retain 1,000 jobs.
