The decision has been made: the next generation Chevrolet Cruze will call the state of Ohio home. Two of General Motors’ plants will be responsible for the compact which is promising to be even more efficient and comfortable than the current car. Both the Parma and Lordstown facilities will piece together the Cruze and in order to make sure things go just right, more than 5,000 jobs will be retained.
“Thanks to northeast Ohio’s supportive business climate, we’re able to build on a great foundation and steer the Chevrolet Cruze into the next generation,” said GM Manufacturing Manager Arvin Jones. To get ready for the next generation, GM will give both plants $220 million for tooling and equipment. Timing for the Cruze’s production has yet to be made official but according to Jones, the next car will have improved fuel economy, a better interior compartment and more storage space than before. Since the car debuted in 2009, more than 1.6 million have been built globally.
