The Lansing State Journal reports the Lansing Delta Township assembly plant will likely be home to the 2018 Enclave and a future, full-size Cadillac crossover. Currently, the Enclave is assembled at the Lansing facility on its archaic Lambda platform.
As for the Cadillac crossover, which is expected to slot between the 2017 Cadillac XT5 and Escalade, it too is expected to ride on the stretched variant of the C1XX platform, which underpins the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse and the forthcoming 2018 Enclave. Therefore, it’s widely thought Lansing will be home to the new CUV.
Previously, the GMC Acadia was built at the Lansing assembly, but moved to Spring Hill, Tennessee, to be built alongside the 2017 XT5. Both the XT5 and 2017 Acadia ride on identical, short-wheelbase variants of the C1XX platform. The old, full-size Acadia remains for a short while longer as the Acadia Limited.
GM recently invested $583 million into the Lansing Delta assembly plant to retool the facility for the C1XX platform, and seeing that crossovers are the ticket currently, the facility’s capacity will likely not be underutilized.
