While General Motors will bring up the all-new 2017 Cadillac SRX production from Ramos Arizpe, Mexico to the United States per a recent announcement, Reuters reports that the company has also made the decision to produce a share of the next-generation Chevrolet Equinox at the Mexican facility, beginning 2017. By that time, the current-generation Equinox will be eight years old.
While this decision may initially have some American car buyers up in arms, the decision made room for the start of Cadillac SRX production at the Spring Hill, TN plant (where the Equinox is currently produced). The plant will also be producing a selection of all-new small Ecotec engines. However, fear is the production shift may offset the number of jobs created from the SRX announcement, though nobody is really talking. A GMC model is also expected to be joining the next-generation 2017 SRX at the Tennessee plant, most likely the next-generation Terrain, but official confirmation still remains to be announced. A production facility for the North-American 2016 Buick Envision has also yet to be announced.
