I'm surprised it took this long.

I predict that plant won't survive the next contract.

What? What happened?

 The plant is Barra's home plant and in the City of the World Headquarters; It would be like Ford closing the Rouge. I see the new Volt SUV going there and maybe the XT7 in the next few years. It is just focused on cars, toss in a plug-in SUV and it will get some production volume back.

GM has way too much production capacity, I think they could consolidate production close four plants easily,

did it never occur to GM to end Mexican Truck and Utility production   and bring those jobs home?

That would play big time for GM being America first....

 

As some have said, GM has lots of obligations in regions and that probably acts against the swathe of efficiency.

I just don't know how much longer GM can ignore consolidation and closure....

They need to bring truck production there ASAP. The days of big cars as "kings of the road" are long over.
