FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Another truck could be headed for production in Flint.

Reports show General Motors could be moving a model made in Mexico to Flint.

People love the Silverado crew cab, but it's currently made in Mexico.

According to a handout given to workers at the Flint assembly plant, work on trucks like crew cab will end in Silao, Mexico and move back to Flint.

The move is expected to increase the amount of shifts available for workers there.

The handout also said they want to bring in more people to help make the trucks.

Local car dealers that sell the truck think it's a great idea.

"That's very exciting news to have the crew cab be built in America. Now where a lot of people have had to settle for double cab, are now being able to buy that crew cab now that it might be assembled in Flint, Michigan," said Rick Baldwin, salesman at Patsy Lou Chevrolet.

There is no official confirmation yet from General Motors or the local union representing the workers in Flint.
