2009 HUMMER H3T Assembly

GM’s Shreveport plant which currently assembles the HUMMER H3 and H3T is expected to shut down by 2012.

The plant also assembles the Chevy Colorado and the GMC Canyon pickup trucks, and according to the UAW and the Associated Press, that plant “is not going to be part of the new General Motors when it emerges from bankruptcy.” That’s not to say the facility wouldn’t still be in use.

It’s possible that GM could be attempting to sell the Shreveport plant to a new, independent HUMMER brand. HUMMER has already said that all international H3 and H3T production will be moved to that plant should the deal with Sichuan Tengzhong be completed.
