General Motors is investing $1.4 billion into its Arlington Assembly Plant where it builds full-size SUVs. The investment is part of the automaker’s commitment to inject a total of $5.4 billion into its U.S. manufacturing plants over the next three years.

The Arlington plant will benefit from a new paint shop, body shop, and general assembly area upgrades, according to GM. Production of the automaker’s full-size SUVs will be unaffected during the three-year renovation, which will begin this summer. GM builds Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and Cadillac Escalade models at Arlington.

“This super-sized investment reflects GM’s commitment to our full-size SUV customers who expect nothing but the absolute best from us and their vehicles,” said Cathy Clegg, GM North America Manufacturing and Labor Relations vice president, in a release earlier this week. “Today’s investment will contribute to Arlington Assembly’s winning tradition marked by strong customer focus, innovative thinking and teamwork.”

GM has invested nearly $2 billion into the Arlington plant since 2011 including this week’s announcement, the launch of the current SUVs, and a new stamping plant. This year marks the Arlington Assembly Plant’s 60th anniversary where the plant also produced its 10 millionth vehicle.
