2018 Chevy Tahoe RST marks 11 Millionth GM Vehicle to Be Built At Arlington Assembly Plant
The plant has been open since 1954.
It is no secret that General Motors has produced an insane amount of vehicles since its founding in 1908. Between being part of the big three, having a massive fleet division and constantly finding themselves at the top of numerous vehicle segments, we aren't surprised to hear they produce millions of vehicles a year. That being said, 11,000,000 vehicles from one plant is extremely impressive.
Nearly one in two full-size utility vehicles sold in the US come out of a Chevy plant and the vast majority of them come from the Arlington Assembly Plant specifically. The lucky vehicle to hold the 11,000,000 title is a white 2018 Chevy Tahoe RST. This performance version of the Tahoe packs 420-horsepower from a 6.2-liter V8, as well as the increasingly popular 10-speed automatic transmission, Brembo brakes, a Borla exhaust and 22 inch wheels. In addition, the Tahoe RST has a body color-matching grill, black decals and a sub-six second 0-60 mph time.
Although the Tahoe may not match certain luxury standards found in the Land Rover Range Rover, this full-sized SUV has trims all the way from pursuit-rated to Premier. Congratulations to GM and all the hard-working men and women at the Arlington Assembly Plant for hitting such a milestone.
