DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors and government officials are expected to announce new vehicles and jobs Wednesday at a factory in Spring Hill, Tennessee.

GM says an announcement is scheduled for Wednesday at the plant. It's likely to get new Cadillac and GMC crossover SUVs in addition to its current product, the Chevrolet Equinox.

Neither GM nor Gov. Bill Haslam's office would comment. But the state said in a July news release that a nearby company was expanding to make parts for new GMC and Cadillac vehicles at Spring Hill.

GM is reworking the Equinox and its sister vehicle, the GMC Terrain. A new Cadillac SRX also is possible.

In 2011, GM said it would invest millions in the plant and create 1,200 more jobs. The plant now employs 1,600 hourly workers.
