General Motors has announced that it will sell its medium-duty truck business to Navistar, the parent company of International Truck and Engine Corp. GM's medium-duty trucks ride on its GMT560 platform and are sold as the Chevrolet Kodiak and GMC TopKick.
According to Automotive News, GM sells about 30,000 to 40,000 units of its GMT560 trucks annually, with the entire market registering 180,000 sales.
Under the new deal, Navistar will be responsible for producing the trucks' chassis and frames, as well as assembly. While not official, it is believed that production will shift from GM's Flint, Michigan plant to International's Springfield, Ohio plant.
The Navistar-produced trucks will still wear their GM nameplates.
