Chevrolet Camaro is a modern muscle car America can be proud of; expect for the fact that it’s built in Canada, and it has an Australian chassis. That is all about to change though. Well, at least half of it. The next Camaro will be assembled at the Lansing Grand River (LGR) Assembly Plant in Lansing, Michigan.
General Motors can now justify the business case for assembling the Camaro in America. It is the only rear-wheel-drive car at the Oshawa plant, but at LGR plant it joins the Cadillac CTS and ATS.
This doesn’t mean GM is abandoning the Canadian plant. The current generation Camaro continues to be produced there, and so does the Buick Regal. Cadillac XTS and the next-generation Chevrolet Impala will also join the lineup after a $185 million investment which resulted in adding a third shift. The consolidated line at Oshawa Assembly will continue to produce the current generation Chevrolet Impala and Equinox until June 2014.
