Over the weekend, we learned that General Motors is working on the 2014 Chevrolet Impala that will go on sale in early 2013. GM has confirmed that it will invest $68 million to prepare the Oshawa Assembly Plant to build the next-generation Impala. The move will save approximately 350 jobs.
“With the investments for the Chevrolet Impala and Cadillac XTS, we are taking big steps forward to ensure we maximize the flexible manufacturing facility and high-quality workforce that exist in Oshawa,” said Kevin Williams, president and managing director of General Motors of Canada.
“We are building on the recent capacity increases, product launches and shift additions at our Canadian operations to affirm that Canada will play an important role in the new GM as we continue to transform our product lineup.”
Along with the production of the new Cadillac XTS, which the Impala will share many components with, GM has invested $185 million into Oshawa and has created or retained 750 jobs.
