new and oldThe GM plant in Orion Township, Michigan is marking the time as new and old make a swap of sorts that will have a direct impact on Buick Cars and the Dealers who sell them, such as your Thunder Bay Buick Car Sales and Service in Canada.  “As General Motors’ Orion Assembly Plant in Orion Township, Michigan, gains a new model to build, it will also lose one.”  We speak of the Buick Verano compact sedan and its production that comes to a close next month, in October.  In terms of a plant, the Orion one will be fine, assuming the Chevy Bolt EV is a hit.  This is the function of the plant moving forward, as the first Bolt was just made there.

The Verano is exiting the building, according to your Thunder Bay Dealership, due mostly to the strong SUV sales as of late.  This is the cause of the Verano production end so that the money and investments can be focused on what the people want.  The numbers are the proof when it comes to these Buick Cars in Thunder Bay, “Verano sales were down 11.7 percent through April compared to the first four months of 2015. Last year, sales totaled 31,886, down more than 27 percent from 2014.”

Buick Cars aren’t the only ones on the market substantiating such a move, or effecting such change, “In a similar move, Fiat Chrysler recently announced it would end production of the compact Dodge Dart and mid-size Chrysler 200 sedans to use the capacity to build more trucks and sport-utility vehicles.”  The 2016 Buick Verano cars actually ended over the summer, according to your Canada Buick Car Dealer in Thunder Bay, and the 2017 model year sees the compact Buick sedan in effect through October and then no more.
