We, on behalf of GMC Trucks in Canada, like to bring you the latest information surrounding the new and used GMC trucks in Thunder Bay and part of that relies upon information that we gather from the reliable sources we encounter online. Recently read and captured is the fact that GMC is upgrading the consolidated line at its Oshawa assembly plant. “An earlier version of this story referred to the incorrect line being upgraded.”
As it pertains specifically to these new trucks in Canada, General Motors Canada will indeed assemble the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado at its Oshawa plant, but they won’t be the redesigned 2019 models, according to the most accurate sources I have seen online. As it pertains specifically to the GMC trucks in Thunder Bay in the Silverado family, “GM unveiled the sleeker, more aerodynamic 2019 Silverado on Saturday in Texas.”
Instead, the plant will finish assembling and paint outgoing 2018 models shipped to Oshawa from Fort Wayne, Ind., for the foreseeable future, according to the same sources who provided the above information on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC truck sales in Canada. Furthermore, we found the following inside information as well, “Oshawa will be building current model (K2) pickups that helps us meet customer demand while we are in transition to next-generation (T1) pickups,” GM Canada spokeswoman Jennifer Wright wrote in an email to Automotive News Canada. “This strategy will help us meet customer demand as we transition our production and introduce our exciting new models into the market starting later in 2018.
“The length of the program in Oshawa will be dependent on market demand.”
