Workers at the General Motors Fairfax, Kansas, plant have been gearing up for 2019 Cadillac XT4 production for months now, but GM announced on Monday just how much it invested to bring the compact luxury crossover to the facility.
Local news station KCTV5 reported that GM will invest $265 million at the Fairfax plant to build the crossover.
“The Fairfax team earned this investment because of their commitment to built-in quality and their focus on the customer,” said Gerald Johnson, Vice President of GM North America Manufacturing and Labor Relations. “We are excited to help bring the first-ever Cadillac XT4 to market.”
The Fairfax plant is a logical choice for GM since it’s all-but-confirmed that the XT4 will ride on the E2 platform. The Chevrolet Malibu, also built at the Fairfax plant, also rides on the same platform.
The 2019 Cadilac XT4 will debut next month at the 2018 New York International Auto Show and the crossover will usher in Cadillac’s latest design language. It will be the first Cadillac wholly developed under brand president Johan de Nysschen as well.
