MUCH easier said than done. Oshawa is a flex plant, meaning that they can rapidly switch between building models on different platforms. For many other GM assembly facilities, they are dedicated to building vehicles on one platform only. Starting Camaro production at another plant would require months of retooling. For example, the Lordstown Assembly plant is currently retooling to switch from Delta-I Cobalt production to Delta-II Cruze/Astra production. The Cruze is not set to begin production until April of next year. Luckily, when the Lordstown retooling is complete, it will be a flex plant along with Oshawa, giving GM more facilities to build a wider range of cars.
