General Motors Co. has announced plans to invest $500 million into its Arlington, Texas, assembly plant. The facility will be used to produce internal combustion engines (ICEs) for full-size SUVs.

The company’s investment will pay for the purchase of new tooling and equipment in its stamping, body shop and general assembly areas.

In a recent quote, Gerald Johnson, executive vice president, Global Manufacturing and Sustainability, said, "Today we are announcing plans for a significant investment in Arlington to strengthen our industry-leading full-size SUV business. Preparing the plant to produce future ICE full-size SUVs reflects our commitment to our valued customers and the efforts of the dedicated Arlington Assembly employees, who have been breaking production records this year.”
