General Motors provided some welcomed and encouraging words for workers at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant. As expected, the automaker will unveil the next generation of the Chevy Camaro in Detroit on May 16, according to this article at mlive.com. GM also reaffirmed the news that the new generation muscle car will be built in Lansing at LGR.

Spokespeople for GM did not provide a firm date for production to begin. Nor did it say that the plant will expand it shifts and personnel to accomodate. As of now, LGR fields one shift to build Cadillac's ATS and CTS models and their V packages. Camaro production will move back to American soil after being built in Canada since its 2010 re-inception.
