The last GM vehicle rolled off the line December 23 2008.
A skeleton crew remained to fulfil an Izusu light truck contract a the plant into June 2009, but the folks making Denali's and Yukons were gone. That is what the Janesville plant primary product was.
The plant was put on stand by in 2010 because demand for GM vehicles began to rise due to the economy recovering.
Close but no cigar. An Izusu is not a GM product.
