The production restart for the Chevy Blazer, Chevy Traverse, and Buick Enclave has been delayed until September 27th. The latest round of production stoppages are a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage.
The Chevy Blazer is produced at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico, while the Chevy Traverse and Buick Enclave are produced at the GM Lansing Delta production facility in Michigan. The GM Ramos Arizpe plant is also putting a hold on production of the Chevy Equinox until October 4th.
The new production stoppages at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico and GM Lansing Delta production facility in Michigan are just a few of examples of new stoppages now in place at numerous North American General Motors facilities. For example, production of the Cadillac XT4 at the GM Fairfax facility in Kansas will be down until September 20th, while production of the Chevy Equinox at the Ingersoll/CAMI plant in Canada will be down until October 4th.
The GM Lansing Grand River facility will be down until September 27th, impacting production of the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 (including both the “standard” model and the high-strung Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing), as well as the Chevy Camaro. At the Orion Township plant in Michigan, production of the Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Bolt EUV will be down until September 27th.
Further production stoppages are in place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee, where production of the GMC Acadia, Cadillac XT5, and Cadillac XT6 will be down until September 20th. At GM’s Wentzville assembly facility in Missouri, production of the GMC Canyon, Chevy Express, Chevy Colorado, and GMC Savana will be down until September 27th.
Meanwhile, GM’s San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico will idle production of the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain until October 4th, while a production restart date for the Chevy Onix is currently unavailable.
