GM to invest more than $1 billion in upgrades to Michigan truck plants

June 5 (UPI) — General Motors, one of the so-called Big Three automakers, said Monday it was investing more than $1 billion on upgrades to manufacturing centers in Michigan catering to the next generation of heavy-duty trucks.

The investment in two facilities in Flint will help GM cater to an industry that still desires heavy-duty trucks powered by the next generation of the internal combustion engine, said Gerald Johnson, an executive vice president for manufacturing at the automaker.
