Where is Chevy Made?

A few buyers around Brookings and Brookings may be asking “Where is Chevy made?,” “Who makes Chevy?,” and “Is Chevy American?” So where are Chevy trucks made and are they still solely made in America?

Brookings Auto Mall has been selling new and used Chevrolet vehicles for years in Brookings. So where is Chevy made and Is Chevy American? Let’s find out with this informative guide below.

Is Chevy American?

Owned by General Motors Company, who also owns Cadillac, Buick, and Pontiac, Chevy is headquartered in the United States, in the state of Michigan. At present, GMC currently operates facilities in 35 nations including Brazil, Japan, Mexico, and Canada.

So who makes Chevy vehicles? Well that depends on the particular model. For example, the Chevy Colorado and Chevy Silverado are built in different locations around North and Central America. For instance, the Chevy Colorado is only built in Wentzville, Missouri. In contrast, the Chevy Silverado is built at facilities in Flint, Michigan, Fort Wayne, Indiana, Springfield, Ohio, and Silao Michigan.

For those Sioux Falls drivers who are wondering if Chevy trucks fit the “Made in America” standing, at least 50% of each Chevy truck is made in the US and Canada. 71% of the Chevy Colorado’s parts and 62% of the Silverado parts are both made in the US and Canada.

Who Makes Chevy Trucks?

As we go through “Who makes Chevy?” and “Where are Chevy trucks made?,” we’ve so far focused on vehicle assembly plants. Some buyers in Brookings and Watertown might be asking about who makes Chevy parts?

In the United States, 38 American companies and GMC-owned facilities make Chevy parts. As you might guess, most genuine OEM Chevy parts are made in the US at facilities in Michigan. Any foreign-made parts are largely found in electronics or vehicle interior spaces.

Internationally, Chevy auto parts come from multiple nations around the world. This includes:

  • 4 Japanese Companies.
  • 5 Mexican Companies.
  • 2 South Korean and French Companies.
  • 3 Canadian and Brazilian Companies.

At the same time, individual companies in Argentina, Columbia, Hungary, Ecuador, Egypt, Thailand, and India. In short, while Chevrolet trucks are American-made, they reflect a global vehicle and product.

Who Makes Chevys in China?

As we finish off our discussion of Where is Chevy made?, you might be surprised that there’s Chevys that only exist in the Chinese market only. General Motors has a 50-50 state in several Chinese factories with SAIC motor. Known as the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, this state-run corporation helps produce multiple vehicles for Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and several other GM brands.

You might be wondering why China isn’t listed in the above list of nations. The reason is due to a 27.5% import tax, or tariff, on Chinese-made vehicles. Given the unprofitability of making trucks in China to sell in US markets, Chinese-made Chevy trucks are only sold in China at present.
