Chevy Brings The 2016 Camaro Home To Lansing

Chevy Brings The 2016 Camaro Home To Lansing

BAY CITY, Mich. - Michigan's capital city has a new resident as Chevy brings the 2016 Camaro home to Lansing. General Motors announced that the 2016 muscle car will be built in Lansing, and will bring 500 jobs and over $170 million dollars to the area. The fifth-generation Camaro is currently being built at a General Motors Plant in Ontario, but the all-new sixth-generation Camaro will be built in Michigan's capital city starting in November.

GM will invest $175 million dollars into the facility that will build the new Camaro to cover new equipment as well as new paint systems, including those for Camaro-only colors: Summit White, Bright Yellow and Red Hot. Currently, the Lansing plant also builds the Cadillac ATS and CTS models. The Mayor of Lansing said that the announcement makes him feel like the "luckiest mayor in America".

The Detroit-based automaker is investing over $2.5 billion dollars into upgrades for facilities around the U.S, which will take about 3 years to finish. Here in Michigan those plans include a $124 million dollar investment to the Pontiac Metal Center, $520 million dollars going for tooling and equipment at the Lansing Delta Township plant, and over $130 million towards a brand new body shop and stamping facility upgrades at Pre-Production Operations in Warren, Mich.

Chevy brings the 2016 Camaro home to Lansing after its summer cross-country promotional tour ends at the Los Angeles Auto Show in the fall. The all-new sixth-generation Camaro was revealed in Detroit last month, and since then has been going toe-to-toe against the 50th Anniversary Edition Mustang and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The 2016 Camaro will go on sale in the fourth quarter in 2015, and you can bet that Hank Graff Chevrolet will have the best inventory around!
