Let's go "Cruzing" with Chevrolet

General Motors' Cleveland, Ohio plant will begin building the new Chevrolet
"Cruze" in April 2010. This new compact vehicle needed
a "new" factory to build and assemble them, but GM has decided to spend
$500 million and to hire 1,400 employees to maintain its plant in Lordstown, Ohio.
Many new car plants have moved to Mexico, due to cheap labor. However,
to keep its car empire growing, and to increase their profits, GM has renegotiated
many of their union contracts so that they can produce a smaller car. GM appears to
be ending their reliance on trucks and SUVs to keep the consumer buying smaller
GM vehicles.

Another new GM, Chevrolet model, "the Traverse",
is now in production at their former Saturn plant, in Nashville, Tennessee.
This eight-seat crossover vehicle is being built to attract former SUV
owners who are looking for better fuel economy. These sound like
new ways to "see the U.S.A. in your Chevrolets."
