    GM Lansing Delta Township Plant Builds Millionth Vehicle

    A Crystal Red Tintcoat GMC Acadia Denali rolled off the production line at General Motors’ Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plant today, the 1 millionth vehicle produced at the automaker’s newest assembly plant in North America.

    “This milestone shows the dedication of our team members to provide the highest-quality crossovers,” said plant manager Scott Whybrew. “Our team has established a strong foundation by continually improving our plant operations in order to exceed the expectations of our customers.”

    Since starting production in 2006, Lansing Delta Township has manufactured the Saturn Outlook, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, Acadia Denali and Buick Enclave. A white Outlook was the first vehicle produced on May 24, 2006.

    The plant currently employs approximately 3,700 employees on three shifts and can manufacture 290,000 vehicles a year.

    “Producing the millionth vehicle would not be possible without the great people we have here,” said UAW Local 602 Chairman Rick Martinez. “Our employees are highly trained, and we couldn't create the models with such high quality without our people.”

    Lansing Delta Township is the only manufacturing facility to be a Gold Certified Leader in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

    The premium Denali model of the Acadia debuted for the 2011 model year, bringing a new dimension of luxury and exclusiv*ity to the crossover. Signature Denali design cues include a chrome honeycomb grille, monochromatic exterior, and mahogany wood interior accents.

    It has to be more than 1,000,000 lambda's, since the Chevrolet Traverse was originally built at Spring Hill, not Lansing Delta Township.

    No doubt! We love our Acadia. Which reminds me....GM, you BETTER NOT leave us in the cold by canceling the Acadia. Just keep improving the formula and families like mine will keep coming. My wife detests minivans and the Acadia fits the bill nicely. She loves it! Keep 'em comin'!

    That's nice but in 1965 Chevrolet built 1 million Impalas alone... then we had to share the market with all the others...

    I wonder where that Denali is going. Maybe it is one that I ordered.

    Definately a great milestone for GM and the Lansing Delta Township plant. As the owner of a 2011 GMC Acadia SLT and a long time GM customer, I am very pleased with this vehicle. By far, it is one of the nicest GM vehicles I have owned. I am proud to have purchased a vehicle that supports jobs right here in the greater Lansing area. Having taken a recent tour of the plant in early October, I was impressed with the manufacturing process. My thanks to the men and women of the Lansing Delta Township plant and the many area suppliers for producing quality products.
