Where are Cadillac Cars Built?

March 18, 2013

If you own a Cadillac, you might be curious as to where it was built. The parent company, General Motors (GM) runs many assembly plants all over the world that manufacture different vehicles across all of its lines. However, with the restructuring that began in 2009, only four car lines remain: Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick and GMC. Cadillac vehicles are only assembled at four factories out of GM's total of 90 remaining across the globe. This makes Cadillac by far GM's most exclusive brand.

  • The Arlington Assembly plant, in Arlington, Texas builds the Cadillac Escalade SUV, and Escalade EXT SUV/Pick-Up truck. It was opened in 1953.
  • The Bowling Green Assembly Plant, in Bowling Green, Kentucky builds the Cadillac XLR sports car, which rides on the same platform as the Chevrolet Corvette. It was opened in 1981.
  • The Hamtramck Assembly Plant, in Hamtramck, Michigan builds the Cadillac DTS, formerly known as the DeVille, Cadillac's largest current production sedan. This plant was opened in 1985.
  • The new Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in Lansing, Michigan controls assembly of the CTS and STS sedans (and the future CTS Coupe), and the popular SRX, Cadillac's first crossover vehicle. It was opened in 2001.

Past models of Cadillac have been built at many other factories that have either been closed or retooled for production of other models. The above list covers all current year 2010 production vehicles in the Cadillac line-up.
