Ram and Ford tried to rain on Chevy’s parade putting out press releases about their trucks. Mark Reuss might as well have tweeted a #holdmybeer to them as he unveiled the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD with 35,500-pound towing capacity. The Flint manufacturing plant will have 4,000 jobs in that plant next year. Reuss said that General Motors has made a $1.2 Billion investment in the plant so far and some of the workers will be from the unallocated plants. Reuss confirmed that no one from General Motors has talked to Tesla about utilizing any of their unallocated plants.

Flint, Michigan is known worldwide. Unfortunately, most people in the world know Flint because of the toxic water system. But the Mayor of Flint, Michigan has heavy duty plans, and so does General Motors.

On the eve of the Chicago Auto show the Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD made their formal debuts at the Flint manufacturing plant. Both heavy hitters Flint Mayor Karen Weaver and Mark Reuss, President of General Motors, were at the debut of the 2020 Chevy Silverado Heavy Duty (HD) trucks and the Flint manufacturing plant. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is a game changer to Flint, MI. and the bread and butter of General Motors.

There is a heart song globally for Flint to come back from its toxic water woes. Mayor Weaver is hoping that with the opening of the GM plant in Flint plant will bring Flint back to the success of yesteryear. Other companies and people, such as Elon Musk have helped with water filtration systems. Weaver talked about the new homes that will be built, the new pipes that will be put in, all because of the new jobs coming to Flint, MI. If there is a town deserving of a break, it is Flint, MI. With three eight hour shifts that will produce 250,000 Silverado HDs annually, that is a lot of money allocated to the city to improve the water and the foundation of Flint.
