We’ve heard from more than a few Livonia car-buyers who wonder whether Chevy is American-made—and if cars produced in this country can be purchased more quickly when you aren’t waiting for overseas shipping. Unfortunately, due to manufacturing shutdowns and slowdowns worldwide, there’s really no guarantee that buying a U.S.-made car will get the keys into your hand any sooner. 

 

 

That being said, many car-buyers still want to know how they can support American workers with their purchase. There may also be benefits to buying American when you take your car in for repairs, as U.S.-made cars are more likely to use locally-made parts that are easier to track down. Read on for a breakdown of where Chevrolet is made, and be sure to explore our research guides to learn more about the Chevrolet brand and lineup!

Where is Chevrolet Made?

So, where is Chevy made? Like most automakers, Chevrolet operates facilities both within and beyond U.S. borders. Where Chevy trucks are made will be different from where Chevy sedans are made, and there may even be differences between models, trim levels, and drivetrain configurations. And while a vehicle may be assembled in the U.S., it may use parts produced in other locations. Here’s where you’ll find Chevy production facilities in America:

  • Bowling Green, KY – Chevrolet Corvette 
  • Lansing, MI – Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Traverse 
  • Wentzville, MO – Chevrolet Colorado 
  • Arlington, TX – Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe 
  • Lake Orion, MI – Chevrolet Sonic, Chevrolet Bolt EV 
  • Kansas City, KS – Chevrolet Malibu 
  • Roanoke, IN – Chevrolet Silverado 1500
