A Buick Envision is hardly the same as a Cadillac flag-ship car.

The Envision was probably never made in a US factory that closed so it could be made in a Chinese plant, like the Cadillac.

Exactly. What a cluster....Build your new "Flag-ship" car for one year in the US, close the plant that made it, then import a Chinese clone as your Flag-ship.

Sounds like a PR disaster.

Ok. Probably the ambiguous industry-speak reason GM might use to possibly still sell Mexican made Cruzes in the US, just not the ones made in Lordstown.

Hopefully anyone who buys a new Silverado from now on will make sure it is not one from Mexico. Mexico also builds GMC Sierra models. Buyer beware.

Assumed? Every article and blog has the CT6 on the cancelled list. Google GM cancelled models and CT6 is on it....Probably the GM alternate-universe syndrome. What's next? No plant closures?
