The plant in Ohio has been producing Cobalts since 2004 and will shut down for two weeks, starting Monday, to re-vamp in order to produce Chevrolet’s new sedan: The Cruze.

It has been a great run for Lordstown, producing nearly one million Cobalts in the last six years … but it is the start of something new and exciting, at the same time.
