“The all-new Colorado builds on Chevrolet’s strong truck heritage,” said Cathy Clegg, GM vice president of Labor Relations. “As we celebrate the first 100 years of Chevrolet today, it is exciting to bring this new global product to the Wentzville team. They also have a strong heritage – a long-standing commitment to building quality products.”
GM originally debuted the all-new Chevy Colorado in Thailand, but has since announced that the Colorado will be sold in the U.S. The current Colorado will continue to be produced at the Shreveport plant through the 2012 model year. Timing for the next-gen Colorado has not been announced.
