Arlington Assembly

Welcome to Arlington Assembly

The General Motors Arlington Assembly Plant has been building world class vehicles in Texas since January 6, 1954. It was the company’s first air-conditioned automobile factory. During its first years of production, GM Arlington produced Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac and Chevrolet passenger cars. The plant converted to truck production in 1997 and now is the only GM facility in the world to produce and export GM’s portfolio of full-size sport utility vehicles – the award-winning Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL and Cadillac Escalade. GM Arlington is one of 63 GM facilities recognized by the EPA for achieving the Energy Star Challenge, reducing energy intensity by 10% within 5 years, equivalent nearly 250,000 homes.

In 2015, GM announced it was investing $1.4 billion into updating and retooling Arlington and Assembly which was preceded by adding an all-new stamping facility in 2013 and a new habitat wildlife facility in 2014.
