GM announced today they have made a $175 million investment consisting of new tooling and equipment for its Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant. Not only will this be where the all sixth-generation Camaros will be born, it will see the return of hundreds of workers to build America’s best-selling performance car for the last five years, was announced today.
According to the press release, the facility improvements include three new paint systems for Camaro-specific colors: Summit White, Bright Yellow, and Red Hot. Lansing will also get two new robotic framers, which allow better dimensional control to provide a more precise drive experience.
Today’s announcement combined with others in the last four weeks accounts for nearly $2.8 billion of the $5.4 billion that GM said April 30 it would invest in U.S. facilities over the next three years.
The new sixth-generation Camaro is set to arrive in showrooms this fall.
