GM Investing $877M into Flint Pickup Plant

General Motors will spend $877 million to upgrade its Flint, Michigan pickup plant, the automaker announced Tuesday.
The assembly plant, which is the oldest GM factory in North America, will get a new body shop as part of the investment along with general improvements.
The plant makes full-size trucks for GM, including heavy duty versions.

The $877 million improvement was the final plant improvement announcement for the automaker, who said in April that it was spending more than $5.4 billion at its facilities.
Last month, GM announced it would spend $1.4 billion at its Arlington, Texas SUV plant for a new body shop and paint shop. That plant makes full-size SUVs for several automakers including the Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Suburban.
In 2011, GM announced a $1 billion investment for the Flint plant, which included a new paint shop. According to GM, the Flint Truck Assembly plant is a destination for truck buyers who want to watch their trucks roll off the assembly line.
Construction is scheduled to begin on the new facility in 2016 and will be complete in 2018.
