Chevrolet marked the milestone this past Thursday and noted 2.5 million of the vehicles built at the Arlington plant have been graced with a Chevy bowtie. In fact, accounting for the other SUVs built at the plant, 75 percent of all full-size SUVs sold in the U.S. come from Arlington.
To keep up with consumer demand, GM has run the plant 24 hours a day and six days a week since 2015. A shiny new SUV is built every minute at the plant.
The Tahoe RST, or Rally Sport Truck, is a first for the nameplate. It bundles a 6.2-liter V8 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission to produce 420 horsepower in its top trim.
