The plant opened in 2001 and has been dedicated to rear wheel-drive assembly the entire time. The location has built every single CTS since the vehicle was launched for the 2003 model year.

In addition to the CTS, the Lansing plant also assembles the award-winning ATS sports sedan, the CTS Coupe and Wagon, and the high-performance CTS-V.

The plant employs 1,541 workers at a 2.5 million square-foot facility that sits on 111 acres.

GM has invested heavily in the plant over the past three years, with $190 million dedicated to ATS production and $88 million towards production of the CTS.

According to a press release from GM, the Cadillacs built at the Lansing facility are sent to 11 destinations worldwide, including Japan, Israel, Russia, Switzerland, and Mexico.

2014 Cadillac CTS is #1,000,0000

The one millionth vehicle is a 2014 CTS with a Red Obsession Tintcoat paintjob.

The CTS, which is one of Cadillac’s most popular vehicles, has been redesigned for the 2014 model year. It has been elevated and expanded, and includes more luxury, performance, and technology.

Although the 2014 CTS is larger and more spacious, it is actually lighter thanks to advanced materials and design. GM says that the lighter weight will make the 2014 CTS more nimble and agile, giving it the best handing in the midsize luxury segment.

GM leaders credit the Lansing facility as an important part of Cadillac and the successful CTS.
