Chevy Equinox in Canada
We have great news for folks looking to invest in high-quality, Canada-made Chevy vehicles! GM Canada has just made the commitment to increase production of the Chevy Equinox in Canada at the Oshawa Assembly plant in Ontario. This move is at least partially motivated by the need to meet high demand for this practical but stylish crossover SUV. Keep reading for more details.
The Oshawa Car Assembly plant in Oshawa, Ontario has been producing Chevy vehicles since 1919, and currently it produces the Chevy Equinox, Chevy Camaro, and the previous and current generation of Chevy Impala, as well as the Buick Regal sport sedan. Since 1999 the facility has even won several (or, to be exactly, nineteen!) J. D. Powers awards for producing quality vehicles. This tradition of Canadian excellence is slated to continue, with GM Canada earmarking C$12 million to be invested in enabling the Oshawa Assembly to produce even more high-quality vehicles, especially the extremely popular Chevy Equinox.
The spacious and well-equipped Chevy Equinox has been so popular across north America that this has not been the first time steps have been taken to produce more of them. In 2010, GM started the one-of-a-kind Equinox Shuttle program that allows vehicle bodies produced at the CAMI Body Shop in Ingersoll to receive final assembly at Oshawa.
What’s next for the Oshawa Assembly? In the future we may be looking at the next breakthrough in green technology coming out of Oshawa, or maybe just the guarantee that high quality Canadian vehicles will continue rolling off the assembly line and to dealerships near you!
