Some Daewoo, Holden, Opel/Vauxhall Vehicles May Be Styled in U.S.

With General Motors cancelling or delaying certain projects while moving up others, there has become a bit of a resource imbalance within the company. Designers once tasked to pickups and SUVs may be idled while those who work on small vehicles may be overtaxed. To counteract this situation, certain foreign market vehicles will be designed in places like Warren, Michigan. Given the tremendous communication and data sharing tools now available, certainly the task of sharing design work across continents is no longer an insurmountable task. I'm sure that the Michiganders are happy for the work, as some manufacturers have chosen other avenues to relieve idled designers.
