General Motors will announce Wednesday afternoon that it will produce the new Hummer H3 at its Shreveport facility, sources tell KSLA NEWS 12. Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco will attend the 1pm announcement at the GM plant. Blanco's office confirmed she will be at General Motors Wednesday but would not confirm the nature of the visit. GM would only say a "major economic announcement" will be made at the event.
The Hummer H3, due in dealerships early next year, is expected to have the same chassis as the Chevy Colorado, which is already produced in Shreveport. The price tag is expected to be more affordable than other Hummer models, starting in the $30,000 price range.
