General Motors boosts SUV production in Mexico

General Motors began production of the GMC Terrain last June at the San Luis Potosi assembly plant, just a month after the Equinox started rolling off from both Ramos Arizpe and San Luis Potosi facilities.

According to local media in Coahuila, also in June, the Ramos Arizpe plant ended production for the Chevrolet Sonic sedan in order to make room for even another SUV, possibly the Blazer.

By the end of 2016 word got out that a new Chevrolet Blazer was in the works for the 2018 model year. Prototypes of the midsize SUV have been spotted being tested on public roads, and suggest it will slot into the lineup between the Equinox and Traverse in both size and price.
