AutomotiveNews reports that General Motors is ramping up production of the GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado due to high-demand, which speaks for the resurgence of the midsize pickup segment–it’s stronger than anticipated.
Not too long ago, it was only the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier perpetuating the midsize pickup market with major staples like the Ford Ranger and previous Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon nowhere to be seen.
But GM took a leap of faith and for the better, as production for these new trucks are at an all-new high, at the Wentzville, Mo. factory as they cut their unpaid lunch break hours.
They’ve also added more shifts while hiring more workers for weekend production shifts as well, in hopes to boost production by 2,000 per month.
