GM to Increase Production of GMC Terrain

March 4th, 2022 by


General Motors (GM) will be increasing the production of the 2022 GMC Terrain. This increase comes as part of a new manufacturing strategy as the automaker will be ramping up production at its San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico. The compact SUV recently received a mid-cycle refresh, so this new production increase will allow more consumers to purchase the 2022 Terrain. The compact SUV features a spacious and comfortable interior and it also has great fuel efficiency. We’ll take a look at some of the other features of the 2022 GMC Terrain, but this is a good sign that GM is aiming to provide consumers with the vehicles they want, despite global shortages.

GMC Terrain to See Increased Production

General Motors (GM) will be ramping up its production of the 2022 GMC Terrain. The compact SUV was recently updated with a mid-cycle refresh, so it will come equipped with some revised features. These will consist of a revised grille and front bumper, new LED headlamps and taillamps, and fresh new 18 and 19-inch wheels. GM will be increasing the production of the compact SUV at its San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico. This will allow the automaker to meet demand in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. About the increased production, the Director of Communications and Public Relations of GM Mexico Teresa Cid said, 

“The new manufacturing strategy will result in the hiring of approximately 1,300 new employees, which would be added to the 5,400 who currently work in the San Luis Potosí complex,” said Teresa Cid. “Hiring began in February, and this year, we should reach about 6,700 employees at the plant,” she added.

The increased production at the GM plant in Mexico will lead to an addition of 1300 new jobs. In addition to meeting the demand for vehicles, GM will also be supplying workers with jobs. In the face of the global supply chain issue, GM is making the decision to simplify its purchasing process. By increasing the capabilities of its plants, GM can reach the greatest growth potential in terms of vehicle production. Its plants can also focus on the materials necessary for GM vehicles which are especially important with so many automakers aiming to take advantage of the upcoming EV sphere. We’ll be staying tuned for more information, but for now, this is great news for GM.
