GM Set to Unveil Two CUV Makeovers at NAIAS

Detroit maker hopes to gain momentum in growing ute market.

The next-generation Chevy Traverse will be bigger when it debuts at the North American International Auto Show next month.

The overall U.S. motor vehicle market is expected to slow in 2017 after three consecutive years of record sales. The exception is the utility-vehicle segment which continues to eat away at sales of sedans and other passenger cars.

So, it’s no surprise that automakers have been flooding the market with new and updated models. General Motors is expected to continue that trend when the North American International Auto Show in Detroit holds its media preview early next month, reports indicating it will reveal at least two revamped crossover-utility vehicle models: complete makeovers of both the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Terrain.

The two models are expected to move in different directions when it comes to size, the Chevy growing, the GMC shrinking. (more…)

General Motors Poised for “Breakout”

GM bets on flood of new product to boost sales, share, profits.

GM has a "huge opportunity" with the new products it will launch this year, insists Pres. Mark Reuss.

General Motors Co. is poised for a major breakout that will transform the company over the next 18 months, according to the head of the company’s core North American operations.

Mark Reuss, president of GM’s North American Operations, described as a “huge opportunity” the flood of new products the maker plans to introduce over the next several years, refreshing what he acknowledged is currently “the oldest product line” in the industry right now.

There are already significant signs that GM’s push to update that line-up is taking hold, the maker noting that it was the first to sell more than 1 million vehicles in a single year that get an EPA-estimated 30 mpg or better on the highway.

“Our product portfolio is now the oldest in the industry (but) we’re going to have the biggest change in our product portfolio in our history. It’s a huge opportunity for us,” noted Reuss, who said GM was already challenging Asian brands in segments where fuel efficiency is of primary importance.

Cadillac will show the production version of the ATS at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show.

General Motors Co. is vowing to make a splash at the North American International Auto Show next month with at least four new products set to make their debut.

Mary Barra, GM senior vice president of global development, said that one of the vehicles scheduled for introduction at the NAIAS will be the Cadillac ATS, the domestic marque’s new entry-level luxury sedan.

“ATS is a crucial part of Cadillac’s expansion,” Barra told the Detroit Automotive Press Association.

After several mis-steps, Cadillac is in the midst of a rapid expansion that will include both the ATS and the big STS premium luxury sedan introduced at the L.A. Auto Show last month.  GM officials have told that additional products are also under development to fill in other luxury segments where Caddy currently doesn’t compete.  But the ATS – which slots below the Cadillac CTS – could be critical for the brand.
