GM Ups Canyon and Colorado Production After Sales Success

September 26th, 2014 by


Success always calls for some form of celebration. For General Motors, the successful sales of the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks means a certain type of celebration—an increase in Canyon and Colorado production numbers.

Since the two midsize pickup trucks went on sale, the American carmaker has already reported 30,000 orders, a number that exceeds GM’s expectations. Because of this high demand, General Motors has added an extra shift to the Wentzville Assembly plant where the trucks are built. The new shift will start early next year, adding about 750 new jobs at the location. Currently, the plant employs 1,315 people.

These new sales projects aren’t only good for the Canyon and Colorado, but it also shows that the midsize pickup truck segment might be making a comeback. The Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma originally led the segment, which has recently lost some popularity. Now, as the most up-to-date entries in the category, the Canyon and Colorado take the cake, showing how terrific the midsized pickup can be.
