After national spotlight, new Cruze comes to Lordstown

Chevy Cruze Lordstown, Ohio

LORDSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The revelation of the next-generation Cruze is something that has been highly anticipated by employees at the General Motors Lordstown plant.

Plant manager Steve Notar Donato said a lot of the employees get to see a small portion of the vehicle, but to have the finished product right in front of them is an entirely different emotion.

The Lordstown plant will be the first one in the world to produce the 2016 model, setting the tone for the rest of the world.

“There is a lot of pride and not only do they want to buy it, but produce it. There is so much pride and passion in knowing what they do contributes to General Motors, the Mahoning Valley and Lordstown,” Notar Donato said.”With that pride comes a responsibility to be the example and do it right the first time in hopes that everybody else that builds it can learn from us.”

The Lordstown Complex Joint Leadership team thought it was important to hold the unveiling ceremony at the plant, so that the people working there could see what their future looks like.

The new Cruze is set to be in showrooms and dealerships by the spring.
