DETROIT — General Motors Co. will suspend production of the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse crossover for at least two months while it moves tooling to another factory.
“I can’t give you the exact time frame it’ll be down, but it’ll be a couple months if not longer,” said spokesman Chris Lee.
GM’s plant in Spring Hill, Tenn., will build the Traverse until mid-to-late November, Lee said. The Traverse will join the Buick Enclave, Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia crossovers now built in Delta Township.
Lee said GM has added overtime shifts at Spring Hill for the third quarter to boost inventory before the switch.
At the end of July, GM had a 68-day supply, or 17,400 units, of the Traverse, down from 82 days a month earlier. GM launched the Traverse in October 2008. Through July, GM has sold 47,369 Traverses.
