General Motors announced today that the company’s Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant has started production of the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe and has started shipping the models to U.S. dealerships ahead of schedule.
“Lansing Grand River Assembly team members spent months preparing for the launch of the CTS Coupe to ensure the highest levels of quality,” said Plant Manager Scott Whybrew. “Lansing Grand River Assembly topped all U.S. plants in the 2010 J.D.
