Latest manufacturing technologies drive production at GM’s updated Arlington Assembly plant
A 1.6-million-square-foot expansion of General Motors’ Arlington Assembly facility is designed to improve production-efficiency and build-quality of the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban.
The previously announced investment of more than $1.4 billion for the plant includes a new, 1-million-square-foot body shop and a 600,000-square-foot expansion of the paint shop, along with new, high-precision camera- and laser-based inspection systems that offer more sophisticated quality checks for the segment-leading SUVs.
“Everything we do at Arlington Assembly is focused on building better vehicles for our customers,” said Bill Kulhanek, plant executive director at Arlington Assembly. “This strategic expansion brings the latest in manufacturing and inspection technologies, while adding procedures designed to improve the quality and durability of the Tahoe and Suburban.”

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s Operation Safe Driver is this week. Police will be on high alert and on the lookout for unsafe driving behaviors by commercial motor vehicles and passenger vehicle drivers. In 2017, nearly 39,000 citations and warnings were issued to truck drivers during Operation Safe Driver Week. More than 84 percent of these violations were for state and local moving violations, according to the CVSA. Check out what enforcement officers will be on the lookout for. This is the perfect time for a self check on some driving behaviors we perhaps need to change. We at TruckLendersUSA want all Truck drivers on the road and safe. The best type of driver on the road, is a safe and alert driver.
