(WXYZ) - General Motors has announced that it will build the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant.
GM made the decision to move operations from Ontario, Canada to improve production efficiencies.
The Camaro is the only rear-wheel drive vehicle currently built at the plant in Oshawa.
GM will meet the production targets that the company agreed to with Canadian and Ontario governments during the 2009 restructuring.
Production of the current generation Chevy Camaro will continue at Oshawa Assembly until the end of the product lifecycle.
The Buick Regal continues to be produced there, and GM recently invested $185 million to support the launch of two new products on the flex line as well: the all-new Cadillac XTS and the next-generation Chevrolet Impala scheduled to launch in 2013.
The current generation Chevrolet Impala Equinox will continue to be produced at the Oshawa plant until June 2014.
