When General Motors first introduced the GMC Canyon, it expected for there to be a high demand—and it looks like the American carmaker was right. Since its introduction earlier this year, the GMC Canyon sales have quickly risen, making demand higher than ever—and causing a bit of a problem for GM. The American carmaker recently announced that it will be increasing its midsize pickup truck production at the Wentzville Assembly plant in Missouri, to keep up with the high demand.
General Motors is planning on adding as many as 1,000 more workers to the plant’s Saturday and Sunday shifts, helping create an additional 2,000 pickup trucks a month. This adjustment, along with reducing break time for employees, will make about 3,500 more vehicles a year.
So far, GM has delivered a combined 35,720 units of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon from January through April alone. To find out why so many consumers are choosing to purchase the GMC Canyon, stop in to Paul Sur Buick GMC today!
