For the owners of 189,000 General Motors SUVs, the days of parking them outside the garage for fear that they could catch fire will soon come to an end.
The new GMC Canyons and Chevy Colorados now are rolling of the assembly line at the Wentzville plant and into dealership showrooms across the St. Louis region.
Plant manager Nancy Laubenthal says the Wentzville facility will be building the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks, and the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savanna.
Repairs could take a month or more; bargains abound.
General Motors is expected to make official Thursday morning that it’s adding a second shift of full-size van production and investing millions for new production of a mid-size pick-up truck.
