Citing declining sales over the past months, General Motors said they will slow production at the Flint, MI and Fort Wayne, Indiana plants starting July 4th. Over 5000 employees work between both locations. This is only a temporary ceasing of construction.This move also does not mean the end of GMC models like Sierra. The pickup is one of the American truck makers best selling vehicle.
According to Bloomberg: "The automaker also produces full-sized trucks at its factories in Arlington, Texas and Silao, Mexico, though no announcement has been made regarding the retooling of those locations. The closures will also ensure that GM isn't stuck with an excess of amount of large truck inventory, which currently stands at 258,000, enough for a 110-day supply."1It's not all doom and gloom for General Motors. Sales of the Chevrolet Cruze have been up steadily since its release. And the GMC Terrain crossover continues to shine.
