Lansing, Michigan – General Motors will invest $900 million in its Lansing Grand River assembly plant for the production of a new Cadillac model. The investment will create 600 jobs and a second shift.

“America’s fastest-growing luxury brand this year is about to get even more competitive with the addition of an all-new, small luxury car,” said Dan Akerson, GM CEO. “This investment demonstrates GM’s commitment to Cadillac and to a strong U.S. manufacturing base.”

Built in 2001, Lansing Grand River is GM’s second-newest U.S. assembly plant, producing the Cadillac CTS, STS and the V-series performance versions. More information on the new Cadillac will be announced later.
