The new Cadillac XT6 SUV was rolled out Thursday at the Spring Hill General Motors Plant where it is being manufactured.
It was introduced recently at GM in Detroit.
On hand for the Tennessee ceremony were Governor Bill Lee, General Motors CEO Mary Barra, local government leaders, and UAW representatives.
Hundreds of workers at the plant also attended the presentation. GM CEO Mary Barra told News 2 that it was important to her to visit with the men and women who run this plant.
“We’re super excited, not only about he Cadillac XT6, that we’re just revealing, but also the XT5 and the GMC Acadia – and also the power train products that they make here,” said Barra. “So I couldn’t be more proud of the team – I wanted to be down here today to say Thank you and also to announce that we’re making additional investment because we’re committed to this plant and Tennessee. So, thank you!”
The Cadillac XT6 is a three-row SUV made with large families in mind. It is smaller than the Cadillac Escalade but larger than the XT5 and XT4.
The Spring Hill site is the largest GM facility in North America, spanning 7.1 million square feet on 2,000 acres. GM has invested more than $2 billion in the facility since 2010.
In addition to the new Cadillac XT6, GM produces the Cadillac XT5, GMC Acadia and Holden Acadia models in Spring Hill, as well as engines used in several GM vehicles.
The plant employs approximately 3,400 employees.
