Cadillac’s $1.9 billion purchase of Chevy Trucks will bring the Detroit automaker to the U.S. market for the first time in more than a decade.
Chevy’s pickup truck has long been a mainstay of the auto industry.
Cadillac has been building trucks since 1955, when it acquired the company from General Motors.
The Chevy brand was renamed Cadillac in 1993.
The company sold off all its trucks in the 1990s, but has been aggressively expanding its production and selling its pickups to buyers overseas.
Cadillac’s Chevy pickup truck, an all-wheel drive version of its Cruze line, will be the first of its kind to hit the U., and it will be sold with a full-size bed, four doors, and four-wheel-drive, according to a release from the company.
It will be available in five different trim levels, including a base model, a Sport trim, a Tour trim, and a Deluxe trim.CADillac will make about 10,000 of the trucks a year.
It is not immediately clear how many of those trucks will be made in the U or how many will be built in other markets.
