GM is expanding an assembly plant in Michigan, where it will build the new small 2013 Cadillac ATS.

The Detroit News reports a formal announcement will come today for the expansion. GM will invest $190 million in its Grand River Assembly plant in Lansing, Michigan, and will add 600 workers to accommodate the new product.

GM hasn't confirmed that the ATS is the product to be added to the Grand River site.

The 2013 ATS will be the new entry-level Cadillac, slotting beneath the CTS. By the time the ATS arrives late in 2012, the Cadillac sedan lineup will include the ATS four-door (and possibly a hatchback version), a revamped CTS, and the 2013 Cadillac XTS, a front- or all-wheel-drive large sedan to be built in Oshawa, Ontario.

Grand River Assembly now builds the CTS lineup and the SRX crossover.

The ATS is being developed with European markets specifically in mind. Cadillac has offered a BLS model in Europe, but the lightly reskinned version of the Saab 9-3 sold poorly and was discontinued as GM prepared to sell off the Saab division.
