Currently, there are two versions of the Chevrolet Colorado pickup: one for the U.S. and another for the rest of the world. In the near future, that split will soon blur together as General Motors recently took a big step in bringing the global truck state side. Its future home will be the Wentzille, Missouri Assembly Plant which broke ground on the production line expansion not too long ago. The addition was made possible by a $385 million investment to ensure the Colorado will be the best GM midsize pickup the American public has ever seen.
“We’re pleased to make this announcement today that strengthens our presence in Wentzville with a significant expansion of our facility that will benefit the local economy,” said John Dansby, GM Wentzville plant manager. Currently, the Wentzille plant pieces together the full size GMC Savanna and Chevrolet Express cargo and passenger vans. That workforce may be strong, but GM isn’t pulling any stops with their first truly global pickup. When the Colorado’s production starts, about 1,260 hourly and salaried jobs will be either created or retained.
