2015 Camaro, GMUS – Preparations for the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro are costing $175m and will see the plant in Michigan adding 500 jobs with a second shift in late summer. Facility enhancements include three new paint systems and two robotic framers which will allow better dimensional control.

“With this investment in tooling and equipment, we will continue to do our part to build on the high-quality reputation of this iconic car,” said Scott Whybrew, GM North American Manufacturing manager.

The new investment plus others announced in the last month account for nearly $2.8 billion of the $5.4 billion that GM promised in April for its US facilities over the next three years.
