The Lansing built Chevy Camaro has been named Motor Trend's 2016 Car of the Year.  The sixth generation Camaro is built at the General Motor's Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant.

It's the first time the car has been built in the U.S. since the third generation ended in 1992 and production moved to Canada.

That's what happens when you bring the American muscle car back home, said Mike Green, president of UAW Local 602.  The award is huge to us.  The UAW membership puts so much into these cars, and it allows GM to keep investing in Michigan.
