General Motors has confirmed it will build the Cadillac XT4 crossover sport utility vehicle at its Fairfax Assembly & Stamping Plant in Kansas City, Kansas.
Reports that the new vehicle was coming to Fairfax surfaced last month but remained unconfirmed by the automaker until Monday.
A spokeswoman for GM at Fairfax said the addition of the Cadillac XT4 will allow the plant to retain about 500 jobs. The assembly plant currently employs 2,235, including about 2,000 hourly workers, making the Chevy Malibu.
GM is spending $265 million to get ready to build the new vehicle at the facility.
