We have had a few rumours about the next-generation Camaro but there are no ifs ands or buts about this folks, the next-gen Camaro will be made in Michigan.
While GM has a contract with the Canadian Auto Workers to produce the car in Canada through 2014, once production of the current generation ends, all bets are off.
GM has played their hand and announced that the next model will be built at Grand River Assembly in Lansing, MI. Chevrolet
says this move is to lower costs by consolidating production of RWD cars to Michigan. The Camaro is the only RWD car made at the Oshawa plant. The Cadillac CTS and ATS, are both made in Michigan.
This move could free up more capacity on the flex-line for other Oshawa-made cars like the Cadillac XTS or Buick Regal. The Chevrolet Equinox and the brand-new Impala are also made in Oshawa and perhaps the Impala will need the capacity.
This could also be GM punishing Oshawa for the high costs of CAW labour. This year was marred by fears of a CAW strike, GM may be sending the union a message.
