TORONTO, Ont. – General Motors has announced that it will create or save hundreds of jobs at its Oshawa assembly line by preparing the plant to build the new Cadillac XTS next year.
The new Cadillac will be built on the Oshawa flex line, the same line that turns out the Buick Regal and the popular Chevy Camaro.
Jason Easton with General Motors told 680News major upgrades are planned for the new Cadillac.
“We’re investing $117-million to prepare for the launch and that will create to retain 400 new jobs.” Said Easton.
This will be the fourth new product added to the Oshawa GM plant in 18-months.
Easton said the new XTS will be a slightly larger model than the Cadillac CTS and contain high technology and have great driving dynamics.
“This vehicle is being developed to compete and win against the finest luxury sedans.”
The first Cadillac XTS will roll out of the Oshawa plant in the first half of 2012.
