2011 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ: Made in Lordstown

March 08, 2011

There was a lot of buzz generated last month when Chrysler's Eminem commercial, "Imported from Detroit" aired during the Super Bowl.

Well the Chevrolet Cruze is also Made in America, although not in Detroit. Our long-term 2011 Cruze LTZ is manufactured in Lordstown, OH. The Chevy Cruze is the sole product of the Lordstown plant. On September 8, 2010, the complex officially launched and started shipping the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze.

Some plant stats:

  • 4,500 employees
  • Products: Chevrolet Cruze
  • 2010 CY Production Total: 158,140
  • Plant Size: 6 million square feet/905 acres
  • Facilities: Vehicle Assembly, Paint Shop, Metal Center Stamping/Body Shop

Made in America. Does that matter to you?
