GM has announced its latest factory investment as $275 million spent on the Fort Wayne, IN Assembly Plant for the next generation Sierra and Silverado Trucks.
General Motors stated back in May that it would be spending nearly $2 Billion on factory investments over the next year and a half. Promised upgrades have been made for the Corvette Factory in Bowling Green, KY; engine plants in Flint and Bay City, MI; a powertrain facility in Taledo, OH; along with several others. Most of the money from GM is staying close to home with over $1.4 Billion being invested in Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.
The Fort Wayne assembly plant is supposedly going to begin producing a next-generation Silverado and Sierra truck as a 2013 model. This is not confirmed, and all we can do is wait and see.
