“Our workforce is second to none,” said Manufacturing Executive Director Mike Trevorrow. “Every time the transporters head out to dealerships across the country, the hard work and pride of everyone at Lansing Delta Township Assembly goes with them.”


Since starting production in 2006, Lansing Delta Township has manufactured the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, Acadia Denali and Saturn Outlook.


A white Saturn Outlook was the first vehicle produced on May 24, 2006.

 

A Crystal Red Tintcoat GMC Acadia Denali was the 1 millionth vehicle produced in November 2011.

 

The 2 millionth vehicle produced was a 2016 Buick Enclave, painted in White Frost Tricoat, that rolled off the line in August 2015.


The plant currently employs more than 2,500 employees on two shifts.


“None of this would be possible without the tremendous effort and dedication of this workforce,” said Bill Reed, UAW Local 602 president. “This plant has proven time and time again that there is no better place to build a vehicle than LDT Assembly!”


The Traverse offers best-in-class maximum cargo room (98.2 cubic feet) and a NHTSA 5-star overall vehicle score for safety, in an expanded six-trim lineup focused on design, performance and technology.


The Traverse Redline Edition is another example of Chevrolet bringing urban-inspired designs to Chevrolet showrooms. The Redline Edition showcases signature Black and Red Traverse badging, 20-in. Gloss Black-painted aluminum wheels with Red accents, black Chevrolet bowtie emblems, grille, foglamp bezels, window trim and roof rails.


General Motors Lansing Delta Township Assembly is GM’s newest plant in the U.S., blending the best practices and newest technology into one facility. 

 

With more than 110 years of automotive history in the Lansing Area, LDT is proud to be a community partner and the first manufacturing facility to be a Gold Certified Leader in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
