    GM truck production back on next week after chip downtime

    Detroit — General Motors Co. will resume full-size truck production at all three of its pickup plants after taking a week off for the global chip shortage, the automaker confirmed Thursday. 

    The affected plants: Flint Assembly where heavy-duty Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups are built, Silao Assembly in Mexico and Fort Wayne Assembly in Indiana where light-duty Silverados and Sierras are made.

    All three were down the week of Aug. 9 and all will resume full production Monday.

    GM has tried to protect its full-size pickup and SUV plants as it has battled through the chip shortage throughout the year. The shortage is expected to affect production and automaker revenues into 2022. 

    “Although the situation remains complex and very fluid, our global purchasing and supply chain, engineering and manufacturing teams continue to find creative solutions and make strides working with the supply base to minimize the impact to our highest-demand and capacity-constrained vehicles, including full-size trucks and SUVs for our customers,” GM spokesman David Barnas said in a statement.
