CORRECTION: A previous version of this report incorrectly identified the vehicles the HFV6 engine powers. It powers the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Colorado pickup.
A portion of the General Motors Canada transmission plant in St. Catharines, Ontario, will come back online May 11, with most of the rest of its North American manufacturing operations resuming the week of May 18, the automaker said today.
In a statement, GM Canada said “a portion” of its HFV6 engine line would resume on May 11. The 3.6-liter HFV6 engines power the Chevrolet Colorado pickup, Buick Enclave crossover and Chevrolet Traverse crossover.
The rest of the St. Catharines plant, as well as the automaker’s CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, where the Chevrolet Equinox is assembled, and the Oshawa, Ontario, stamping operation will “come back gradually in the weeks that follow,” GM Canada said. It was not immediately clear if they would resume the week of May 18, though the automaker said it planned to resume production at a majority of its North American plants then.
