General Motors Investing $250 Million in Canada SUV Plant

Upgrades to Accommodate Multiple Vehicle Platforms

General Motors has announced a $250 million investment in its Ingersoll, Ontario plant to accommodate future production of multiple platforms and models. The plant currently produces the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain.

Kevin Williams, president and managing director of GM Canada, specifically said the upgrades were being done for the "ability to produce multiple global architectures and body styles."
The Ingersoll plant, also known as CAMI, previously also produced the Suzuki Sidekick and XL7 crossover, the Geo Tracker, as well as the now-defunct Pontiac Torrent, the virtual twin of the last-generation Chevrolet Equinox. Suzuki withdrew from the joint-venture agreement with GM in 2009, giving the General full control of the production facility.
No information was disclosed as to what future products could be built at CAMI, but depending on demand, production of the Buick Encore compact crossover could potentially be moved from Korea to Canada. The new product may not be a crossover or SUV.

The popular Chevrolet Equinox crossover is also built at the former Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee. It has consistently been the third best-selling SUV in the U.S. behind the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape for most of 2012, and the first two months of 2013.
