The current Camaro has been assembled in <a href=&quot;http://autoblog.com/tag/oshawa/">Oshawa</a>, Ontario, Canada, since its introduction in 2010.<br /><br />The automaker cites "lower capital investment and improved production efficiencies" as key reasons for the move - indeed, the Camaro is the only rear-wheel-drive vehicle made in Oshawa; the <a href=&quot;http://autoblog.com/buick/regal/">Buick Regal</a> and <a href=&quot;http://autoblog.com/cadillac/xts/">Cadillac XTS</a> are currently manufactured there, and the upcoming <a href=&quot;http://autoblog.com/chevrolet/impala/">Chevrolet Impala</a> will join the front-wheel-drive group in 2013. Meanwhile, the Lansing facility currently produces two rear-wheel-drive vehicles - the <a href=&quot;http://autoblog.com/cadillac/ats/">Cadillac ATS</a> and <a href=&quot;http://autoblog.com/cadillac/cts/">CTS</a> - which makes the Camaro a natural fit.<br /><br />The <a href=&quot;http://autoblog.com/tag/caw/">Canadian Auto Workers Union</a> is, as expected, none too pleased by the "callous and poorly thought-out" announcement, "reacting in anger and frustration" according to a statement. CAW National President Ken Lewenza added, "General Motors has once again shown a complete and utter disregard for its workers and also Canadians in general, whose tax dollars kept the company out of bankruptcy."<br /><br />The CAW says that "GM must replace lost Camaro production on a one-to-one basis." The automaker's own statement says it will "continue to meet the production targets agreed to with the Canadian and Ontario governments during the 2009 restructuring." In any case, production of the current Camaro will continue in Ontario until the next-gen model is ready to go on sale sometime within the next few years.<br /><br />Feel free to read statements from both General Motors and the CAW <a href="/2012/12/19/chevy-camaro-to-be-built-in-us-once-again/#continued">below</a>.<p><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/12/19/chevy-camaro-to-be-built-in-us-once-again/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Chevy Camaro to be built in US once again</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/12/19/chevy-camaro-to-be-built-in-us-once-again/">Chevy Camaro to be built in US once again</a> originally appeared on <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 19 Dec 2012 14:17:00 EST.
