13 Millionth Vehicle Built at GM's Flint Assembly Plant is a GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD

Earlier today, a 2011 GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD became the 13 millionth vehicle built at General Motor's Flint Assembly plant in Flint, Mich since the factory opened in 1947.

Flint Assembly started out producing Chevrolet cars as part of GM’s Fisher Body Division. The facility later produced the 1953 Chevrolet Corvette, of which only 300 were made. In all, the plant produced 4 million cars, including Chevrolet Bel Airs, Impalas and Monte Carlos, and 9 million trucks, including Chevrolet Fleetside pickups, Chevrolet and GMC Suburbans and the current lineup of light-duty and heavy-duty Chevrolet and GMC pickups.

The Sierra Denali was purchased by James Stubbings, a Michigan resident and president of Heartbeat City in Shelby Township, Mich. It's the 13th GMC truck that Stubbings has purchased. Combined with its position in GM manufacturing history, the Denali has been nicknamed "Lucky 13."

woo hoo, congrats GM, hopefully my next truck

with plastic chrome hubcaps.

A number of medium and heavy duty commercial trucks were built at Flint too. Wonder when GM will be back in that market.........

My 88 K5 Blazer was one of those 13 million

Funny how those big milestone production drive outs coincidentally always produce the top of the line pickup. Just wouldn't be the same if it was a white, reg cab, SB, 2500HD.

@ Ken - at least the base truck has metal hubcaps

LOL, so very true. It's got to be the top of the line truck purchased by a long time Chevy buying family. A single cab crank window all white fleet truck really would have been funny. Getting picked up by an illegal farm worker would have been the best!

denali is a nice looking truck,compare to ford lunch box..and the big ugly front grill.

@ Miath - the francophone version of Bob.
