WENTZVILLE, MO (KTVI)— GM unveiled a new pick-up truck that is expected to help rev up production lines at its Wentzville plant.
The GMC Canyon rolled out at the North American International Auto Show last night in Detroit.
Wentzville offered tax incentives to help lure truck production, and it worked.
In 2011, GM announced production would be at the Wentzville plant, and $380 million was spent to expand the facility.
Governor Jay Nixon was on hand for the unveiling.
GM’s Wentzville plant creates 1,400 to 1,800 new jobs.
The 2015 Canyon will be for sale later this year.
