INGERSOLL, Ont. - Despite the worst automotive slump in 26 years, General Motors is preparing to introduce a new vehicle model made in Ontario.
The crossover GMC Terrain manufactured at Cami Automotive in Ingersoll, Ont., will be unveiled Wednesday at the New York auto show.
Cami has about 500 workers on layoff and about 1,400 hourly employees who work on a two week on and two weeks off rotation.
Mike Van Boekel, chairman of CAW Local 88, says he hopes the launch of the GMC Terrain heralds a return to full production at Cami.
The Terrain, set to roll into showrooms in August, is the second new vehicle to roll off an assembly line in Ontario.
Toyota in Woodstock began making the RAV4 last November.
"This is the worst market in a long, long time and it is certainly nice to see new products here," said Tony Faria, business professor at the University of Windsor.
"The launch of anything new is very significant, and there is no other region getting two new vehicles."
